Magical Doodles Come To Life!  Kid's Art  Ages: 7 & Up

Feb. 20, 21, 22  1:30 - 3:00 PM - Bristol Clay Studio

Everyone is an artist! It just takes finding your own personal style and the realization that a "mistake" in ART can turn into a beautiful masterpiece. Students will be guided

with tips on how to bring their own magical doodles to life using bright colors, lines, shapes, swirls and whatever suits-their-fancy with acrylic paint on canvas. Starting

with ink and paper, we will practice some small designs, then move onto bringing our

own uniqueness and originality to canvas through layers and colors.  This is NOT a Young Rembrandts Class

Instructor: Melissa Atkins  $60.00
