Kids Winter Art/Crafts Program - Kids Classes

From 10:30am until 3:00 pm

At Highland Arts & Crafts LLC

150.00

Our Summer programs are well loved by many kids and we thought this year the dates fall perfectly over winter break - so why not do a Winter art program experience! 

Dates Tuesday, December 27th - Friday, December 30th  10:30am - 3:00pm 

(in the event of inclement weather we'll do makeup sessions on weekends which we can discuss further should the need arise!) 

We will spend the week focusing on arts and crafts that are not only fun, they're functional.  

Projects included: 

  • Bath Soaps
  • Bath Bombs
  • Sugar/Salt Scrubs
  • Wax Melts
  • Bird Feeder (Build and Paint) 
  • Edible bird seed ornament hangers
  • Intro to knitting 
  • Glass painting / faux stained glass
  • 2023 Art Journal Creation & Activities
  • Other mini projects when time allows

Miss Jo will be teaching a segment on beginner knitting and each child will receive a pair of knitting needles they can take home to continue to practice if they enjoy it.  This is a skill that takes some patience so we'll focus on a simple learning project to help them develop the feel for it. 

  • Sack lunches are required for each day except for Friday.  On Friday we'll grab pizzas for lunch. 
  • We provide one daily snack and drink, so please send your child with a water bottle.  
  • If your child has food allergies or intolerances snacks/drinks will also be your responsibility.  

 

We look forward to seeing your child for a fun week of creativity!  If this is well received we'll try to do another one next year.

Our projects change seasonally, right now we have a variety of Christmas projects in addition to our regular projects – paintings, signs, door rounds, wood cutouts, interchangeables etc. The best thing to do is to come into our studio to see what is available or sign up for a workshop listed on our calendar.
