Art Starts gives parents and kids a creative toolbox for generating ideas so they can create their own unique art games at home! During this two-hour class we will play a series of “art starting” games and create ones to take home so that you never have to say, “I collage portraits 16don’t know what to draw!” again. These games will build your confidence and create new creative combinations to try at home, at school, in the car, or anywhere! Let's get those creative juices flowing!
