The works of art that come from making a mess are quite
amazing! Think splatter and blow painting. Make slime and flubber. Create with shaving cream and glue. Design ceramic doggy banks and create shrinky-dink sculptures. Learn how to make your own clay, and then sculpt super cool masks. Decorate wacky, wild cars for an art car parade. Discover marbleizing and glitter painting, design batik T-shirts, and experience collage and fabric arts. Creative spirits are set free!

Bring an oversized old T-shirt to wear as a smock, a nut-free snack and a drink each day.
