Our book nook is a cozy, quiet, and technology free space for anyone who wishes enter into a new realm of imagination and wonder… we are loving our nook! For our little artists and maker friends who finish a project early, or need to step away for a minute to regroup, this is a wonderful mini retreat.
We are super excited to announce that we are hosting our first adult workshop with Svitlana Pimenov of White Canvas at Essem Art Studio for a three hour workshop where each participant will learn how to make, and walk away with, a LIGHTWEIGHT FAUX MARBLE PHOTO BACKGROUND. We have admired Svitlana’s work for a couple years and it is a dream to have her at the studio. We hope you will join us. Here’s what the workshop will entail:
- 3 hours of hands on experience with a small break for refreshments
- learn how to (and walk away with your own) lightweight and absolutely unique faux marble photo surface
- acquire original surface making techniques from Svitlana Pimenov, the founder of WHITE.C.A.N.V.A.S
- get your questions answered during the Q&A session
- BONUS: a DIY photo background supplies kit to take home backed up with a video tutorial
There are only 10 spots available, for more information and to book your spot, go to WHITE.C.A.N.V.A.S.
Monday’s Art Labs combine singalong and art time for little artists (5 and under). This approach affords focus and flexibility and creates opportunities for the little artists to get involved in creative play and exploration. Art Activities will occasionally incorporate lessons in letter, number, and color recognition in a loose and fun way.
Wednesday Art Labs are open to all ages and projects will be modified according to age groups and abilities. In these sessions, the full hour will be dedicated to arts and crafts.
Private Play Dates · If the available Art Labs don’t work with your schedule, families can coordinate to have private art play dates with their little ones. The minimum number of participating children is 6 and we can accommodate a wide range of ages. You can also customize a recurring session (ie. every Monday at 2pm, 4 weeks) to mix up your summer activities for the kids.
For all Art Labs, we explore age/level appropriate mediums through guided activities and graduate to more complex mediums over time. All kids must be accompanied by an adult (adult to kid ration must be 1:2).
