Art Explorers: Mark Making for Kids (Age 3-5) 

September 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


September 2 from 10:00 – 11:00 am

Come play, experiment, and learn how to do art! Children will be given brief and simple instructions on the project of the day. This  might include acrylic painting, decorating a card, making fruit and/or vegetable prints, or painting wood. We’ll use kid-safe acrylic paint with a variety of tools including paint brushes, tooth brushes, vegetable stamps, and leaves. Art making at an early age can enhance fine motor skills, creativity, problem solving, not to mention joy! The group space provides opportunities to work on cooperation, sharing, turn taking and respecting space. All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door.


Teaching Artist: Rebecca Curry

Rebecca Curry has a master’s degree in occupational therapy and an undergraduate minor in visual arts. She has led art groups for eight years as a Mental Health Occupational Therapist and has more than 20 years of experience in watercolor painting. Rebecca had three years of traditional training in portraiture through Watts Atelier of the Arts (Encinitas, CA). She has coached Brazilian jiu-jitsu for children ages 4-15.
