This series is all about freedom to create at your own pace, in your own style and in an inviting art studio. A place where art kids can connect with each other as they work. Creatives will doodle, cartoon, scribble, or draw. They get feedback from the instructor only if they seek it. Awesome art supplies and tools are provide for everyone.

We'll also work in modeling clay. Instructor: Kathleen Fox
