Art-venture with a totally unique twist! Make masterpieces with real moving parts, create the illusion of movement, and discover art processes that use motion to get amazing results. Combine metal, wood, and paper to build Spinning Sculptures inspired by Calder, and design Stretchy Stained Glass art you can re-shape again and again. Sculpt goofy Clay Monsters, craft Bendy Paper Lizards, and paint Seascapes like Money. Create Matisse Watercolor Banners, Fireworks Flower Pots, and Textured Tissue Paper art. Design

Kaleidoscopes, Dancing Pasta Sculptures, and Scribble T-shirts. Draw zany faces inspired by Silberzweig, and decorate Cupcake Boxes with fluffy frosting and sprinkles. With a focus on color, shape, and MOTION, this program will have you jumping for joy!
