Using bright colored paper and fun scissors, children will create collaged faces that are unique and playful.

December 26: Print an Expressive Face
Create abstract faces with foam shapes; roll on some fun colored ink, and print onto to assorted papers. Children will come away with multiple printed faces!

Join us to draw and paint portraits with watercolor materials that blend and mix in beautiful ways.
