Dates and Times:

February 3, 1:30-3pm - Huichol Yarn Painting - Discover how the Huichol people of Northwestern Mexico create beautiful vibrant images using complimentary yarn colours and beeswax. All designs are based on a love and respect for the natural world.

February 10, 1:30-3pm - Linocut Valentine Cards - Draw a heart themed design onto a Safety-Kut Lino block before learning how to safely use a lino carving tool. Lino blocks are then inked up with a roller or brayer and pressed onto folded card stock to create a printed image. Up to four valentine cards can be created in this fun, process driven art class!

February 17, 1:30-3pm - Ring Weaving - Using a pre-wrapped metal ring, children will create a circular warp that starts out like spokes on a bicycle wheel. A variety of materials will be used to weave a circular weft starting in the centre and moving outwards. This project can be turned into a lovely little wall hanging, wind chime or tree decoration.

February 24, 1:30-3pm - String Painting - Experiment with paint, string and a variety of surfaces during this active, colourful art class designed to surprise, challenge, and engage curious minds. Three different art projects will be created during the program.

March 3, 1:30-3pm - Macrame Wall Hanging - Children learn how to make and incorporate several different types of macramé knots before they are challenged to create a balanced, symmetrical wall hanging that may include the addition of wooden beads.

March 10, 1:30-3pm - Batik - The process of dying fabric after it has been decorated with intricate patterns using beeswax has been practiced in Asia for over 2000 years. Using melted beeswax, children will experiment with tijanting tools, brushes and fabric dyes to create a beautifully decorated batik artwork. Completed batik can be sewn onto pillows, clothing or added to a frame.

March 17, 1:30-3pm - Illuminated Celtic Letters - It’s St. Patrick’s Day so why not learn about Celtic art and lettering? Children are inspired by images of traditional Illuminated Manuscripts before being challenged to design the first letter of their name as a Celtic letter using pen and ink.

March 24, 1:30-3pm - Decorative Eggs - Get ready for Easter by taking part in a tradition that comes to us from the Ukraine. Children learn how to safely handle a raw egg, open candle flame and a kystka, the traditional Ukrainian drawing tool used to apply wax designs onto an egg between dye baths.

Cost: $15 (SHINE members save $2 with promo code!)
