This workshop is suitable for ages 12 through 24 months.
Parents are included in the cost per child and absolutely must participate in the session. We set up the workshop as an Open-Studio, with several stations with age-specific activities for the little ones to engage in with their parents. All the ink we use is safe, non-toxic and cleans with soap&water. While this is a printmaking workshop, we focus more on painting and stamping for this age group, though each child will leave with a series of individual prints that they worked on directly. The sessions we have had for this age group, in the past, have been a lot of fun. Parents get a chance to immerse themselves and their children in paint and ink, without the hassle of cleaning up.
What is the Age Group?
The Sensory Workshop is best for ages 12-24 months. This particular session functions more as an open-studio, where kids can explore the variety of art activities throughout our 5,000sq/ft workshop.
What Should they Wear?
Smocks are available, and all inks/paints are water-based, non-toxic and clean with soap & water. We do suggest wearing clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.
What do we get to Keep?
Each child will create a series of their very own individual prints. The inks we use stay wet for a while (we have clothes lines for drying). Parents can either pickup the prints at a later date, or take them with you (we have paper bags to carry prints home). We also have our Custom Sketchbooks and Notecards on display which can be ordered through our website. Click Here to Email us with any questions.
Printmaking is an art form that thrives on process, where the artist uses a vareity of tools and techniques to create their art. It also requires a fair degree of patience. With this age group, we realize that patience may not always be possible, though introducing children to the art of printmaking and large-scale collaborative art, helps to build patience, focus and working together with others. We have built a ‘Kid-Friendly’ Printing Press that everyone has a chance to operate and make their own prints. We also have many large-scale art activities throughout our 5,000 sq.ft. workshop.
We hope to see you at the shop!
