Description:Saturday December 29th: Critter Class w/ Blank Park Zoo Presentation
This exciting class is half art, half animals! Students will create a fabulous mixed media artwork, meet and learn about a variety of small animals, play games, and enjoy a snack. We will focus our learning around color theory, composition, and critters! This is an experience your animal enthusiast is sure to love! Join Kids Create and Blank Park Zoo for this one of a kind class!

Friday February 22nd: Insect Art Class w/ IA State Insect Zoo Presentation
We will make fabulous Eric Carle inspired artworks, meet live insects, play games, and watch A Bug’s Life. Students will learn how to create texture with paint, how to blend and mix colors, and how to use repetition in an artwork. We will enjoy the novelty of painting with toy cars, fly swatters, marbles, and forks. The Iowa State Insect zoo will give us a hands on presentation that is sure to have your student on the edge of their seat! Join us for this fun class about both ART and INSECTS!
*Please send your student with a peanut free sack lunch.

Friday March 22: Peter Rabbit
Students will learn to draw and paint rabbits, play games, and even cuddle real bunnies! We will practice 2 different painting styles, and students will use their new skills to create fabulous Catherine Rayner inspired paintings. When our “work” is done, we will watch the Peter Rabbit movie and munch on theater snacks. Join us for this super fun class all about RABBITS!
