“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.” —Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
The winter break kids art camp was a huge success – Wizards & Magical Creatures in Winter Wonderland! There were so many happy kids and families enjoying our last day together, with the Harry Potter themed party. Guess what!?! This will become a regular thing for every winter break. If you weren’t able to attend, but wanted to, then keep in mind that this will be back next December!
Additionally, you can find out more about all the fun art events and art classes on my Instagram/Facebook pages Rachel’s Whimsical Art.

Art Class: Parent & Me Animal Portraits in Mixed-Media at Pratt!
Learn Mixed-Media and Collage to make Animal Portraits, and explore the unlimited facets of using layers, texture, collage, drawing and painting that is all a part of mixed-media art. We will create a unique animal portrait (your choice of an owl, cat, dog, or a rabbit), in a large scale of 18”x 20” board, with layers of watercolor painted paper collage with adhesive. This is a cherished moment that you’ll not want to miss with your family! This class is designed for one student, 8 years and up, and one accompanying adult (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Aunt, etc.). Space is limited so sign up early! No experience necessary, all materials included.
