Painting with Scribble Art Workshop

Ages 5 -7
Painting is a complex and beautiful process that children love.

Painting with Scribble Art Workshop

Ages 8 – 12
This class will give our artists experiences with both traditional and non-traditional printmaking methods including block printing with found objects, linoleum printing, mono-printing and more. We’ll print on many different surfaces including fabric and 3-D objects. This medium is an amazing way to explore layering, color theory and most importantly (and unique to printmaking) how to utilize having multiples of one piece of artwork!

RoboThink: Robotics and Coding for Kids

Ages 6 – 10
Join RoboThink’s fun and exciting robotics and coding class!  Build robots of all shapes, sizes and functions with modular parts and make them move using gears, sensors, motors, electronics and coding.  Weekly step-by-step projects introduce engineering concepts through engaging activities and challenges. And RoboThink’s curriculum is always changing – a child who repeats a class will never build the same robot twice.  RoboThink is a hands-on learning experience where kids maximize self-learning and discover that building robots is easy, educational, and fun!
