February Art Fridays
Every Friday in February with Artezen Youth, children will make fun and unique crafts with the help of our artist instructor, who will guide them step by step.
In our first workshop, which is on Friday, February 12th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the kids will make Pop-Up Valentine’s Day Cards. Each child will be able to use their creativity to create bright and colorful cards that can be given as a gift for the upcoming holiday.
Here’s what you will need to make the Valentine’s Day Pop-Up Cards:
- computer paper / card-stock paper / construction paper for the card (any color you want)
- crayons / markers / colored pencils / paint (anything you want to use for the card)
- glue / tape (if you have double-sided tape, it will be easier!)
- white, pink, and red computer / card-stock / construction paper ~ you do not need to have all of these colors; even if you have a few of these colors, that’s perfectly fine!
- pipe cleaners (red, pink and white are preferred, but any color is fine!)
- felt fabric (red, pink and white are preferred, but any color is fine!)
- string or ribbon (any color!)
In our second workshop, which is on Friday, February 19th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the kids will create paintings using Q-tips as their main paintbrush. With this cool and easy painting technique, each child can create their own unique masterpiece to hang around the house.
Here’s what you will need to make the Q-tip Paint Creations:
- Q-tips (cotton swabs), grab a handful of them
- a rubber band to hold the Q-tips together
- acrylic paint (as many colors as you want)
- canvas or paper (if paper, preferably cardstock paper or thick paper)
- regular paint brushes (any brush size)
In our third workshop, which is on Friday, February 26th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the kids will create modern art paintings using saran-wrap and paint. Each child will also use paper towels and other household items to outline unique shapes and create a wonderful abstract piece!
Here’s what you will need to make the Modern Art Paintings:
- canvas (cardboard if you don’t have a canvas) / paper (preferably cardstock paper or thick paper)
- paints (preferably acrylic) / paintbrushes (any size)
- saran / plastic wrap
- paper towels
- jar lids / plastic cup / plastic water-bottle
