Session Art Classes

Messy Mixed Media

IMG_1577Messy Mixed Media is a facilitated, parent-and-child art class. We introduce different methods and materials each week in projects that encourage children to express themselves, to make independent choices and evaluations of their work, to develop fine motor skills in age-appropriate ways, and to approach their art-making with a sense of fun and appreciation.

Each session of Messy Mixed Media is different, but frequent activities include paper-mache; print-making; sculpting with recycled wood, cardboard, and clay; collaborative 3-D projects and installations; activities incorporating collage, paint, and drawing materials; cumulative works; and projects inspired by great artists. We often utilize recycled materials, and in doing so it’s our goal to give children a beginning sense of earth-friendly art practices and to have them begin to see the potential art in everyday objects.

From the Web: Messy Mixed Media was included in DailyCandy’s “Coast To Coast: Kids’ Classes That Rock” issue (Sept. 2013).
