Teen Art Challenge: Grades 6-12
Aug 9 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Pick your supplies and attempt a new piece of art by following guided directions. You can choose the supplies. You can use colored pencils, paints, paper, collage, markers, or anything else you have around the house. If you are using paper with no writing instrument, you will probably need scissors to cut out shapes, unless you want to tear the paper by hand. The goal is to create as a group while using your personal style and creativity to interpret the final product. We will encourage attendees to share their final products but won’t force anyone who is uncomfortable. Miss Aimee will be creating along with you and will share her final piece. She is in no way an artist, but a casual crafter. This isn’t about creating a masterpiece, it’s about creating in a social environment and having fun figuring out where the directions will lead us.
