Calling all creative kids! Abandon the flat canvas in this mixed media Workshop where colors, patterns, and combined materials provide the structure for new forms of art. Inspired by the work of artist Alan Shields, participants will take painting to the next dimension by designing their own colorful canvases from hand-made paper and suspended forms.
