The VisArts Center received a grant this past year for a program they call Side by Side Saturdays. Adult-child pairs attend two-hour sessions on three consecutive Saturdays to create art together. There are a host of class choices, including ceramics, tie dye, embroidery, jewelry making, batik, watercolor, collage, woodworking, comic book art, and more. And it's FREE! Griff was psyched to have his first "art date" with me this morning. We picked tie dye for our first class.
That last photo is a collection of spinning wheels on the wall of the fiber arts room. Seeing the looms and wheels and spools of thread made me really, really want to take a weaving class. It also made me look forward to my upcoming glass fusing & slumping classes with Sarah. Stay tuned for more art!
