CLASSES

I am very excited to introduce a new offering this fall: an evening Fiber Arts class for older kids, ages 8-12 years. Fabric has endless possibilities, from traditional techniques such as batik to more modern projects such as fabric bracelets with iron-on gems and magnetic clasps. In addition to this new class, I will be offering the old favorites: Sensory Fun, Art Explorations, Art & Technique, and Art & Science. Also this semester, all classes will now run for 10 weeks, not 8! More art!!!

And, in a Muckykids first, we now have online class registration! Register right here on our website and pay for your slot with a credit card. No more calling to find out if space is available. Book with confidence! :)

Sessions run anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, as noted in the class descriptions. The class series listed are our offerings for the Fall 2018 semester, which starts September 24, 2018.

Some of the projects will include using a batik technique to look at line quality, printing with shapes on fabric to make a pattern garland, creating a textured fabric collage on wood, and color mixing on muslin for a wall hanging. We will even make a mini quilt and cozy bed for a favorite stuffed animal! This is a process-based class, allowing for individual expression, experimentation, and emergent curriculum.
