Art From Parts

NEW THIS SUMMER! Come join local Artist Kathie Bridges for a creative and innovative way to make art! Have you ever wondered how some things are made? Or wanted to create some unique sculptures from a variety of items? If so, then this classis for you! During Art from Parts, you will learn how to deconstruct various objects such as old electronics and use dissembled pieces to reconstruct your very own one of a kind sculptures and masterpieces. This class will spark imagination and creativity in a multitude of ways! Parents, although safety will be highly stressed and your child will have adult supervision, we will be using tools such as pliers, screw drivers, wire cutters etc. to deconstruct and re-build their sculptures. We will also be using non-washable paint for our projects. Please send your artist with a pair of work gloves and in old clothing. This class will meet two times.
