Art Classes at MoNA Nov. 10th & Dec. 1st !
Upcycled Books in Mixed-Media Art - kids (ages 8+) & adults on December 1st, 1:30pm – 3:30pm. This art class is all about learning how we can transform an old book that’s been discarded or gently-worn, into something new, and you’ll use your imagination to make an Art Book or Journal of your very own! You can choose the theme, such as your favorite hero, story, passion, or character. We’ll use layers of paints - watercolors & acrylics, choice of colors, use adhesives, gesso, washes, inks, stamps, colored pencils, markers, and many more choices of materials. This fun class will allow you to explore a whole new way of repurposing old worn books, and being creative. Dress for mess, and enjoy this fun art activity! (Note: Children under the age of 12, must be accompanied by an Adult)
