Messy Masterpieces: Session 2

Messy Masterpieces is a time to make something beautiful…and get a little dirty! Register for a 4-week session, dress for a mess, listen to stories, and create some unconventional art projects. As Bob Ross said, “We don’t really know where this goes – and I’m not sure we really care…every day is a good day when you paint.” With process art, it’s all about the journey! Get ready to have some good Tuesdays with us.

Messy Masterpieces is for children ages 7-12. This is an outdoor program, meeting in the Queset Courtyard and the Walled Garden. In the event of inclement weather, Messy Masterpieces will be canceled.

During Session 2, the weekly projects are as follows:

  • August 2nd: Puffy-Painted Aprons
  • August 9th: Foil Painting
  • August 16th: Icicle Sunrises
  • August 23rd: Spray Bottle Prints
Event Location: 
Queset House, Walled Garden
