If your child loves art and wants to paint their own canvas painting, over the course of several sessions, then the Little Pulp Paint Studio Program is for you.
The Paint Studio program takes place every Monday & Wednesday afternoon (4:00-5:30pm) -and- one some Friday, Saturday & Sunday afternoons. It is part of our Art Studio set up, which requires some explanation - so please read on.
So, every Monday & Wednesday (4:00-5:30pm) we have our Art Studio, which involves printmaking and papier-mâché - kids can work on their own papier-mâché sculpture piece (most kids work on a snowman, planet, dinosaur, giraffe, etc). The papier-mâché is not something that can be completed in one session - kids come back and continue working on their pieces. Since not many kids can sit for 90 minutes working on papier-mâché, they also do some printmaking and they can work with Frank on the large-scale collaborative paintings in the shop.
It occurred to us, that we can use this time for kids to work on their own canvas painting. The type of painting that goes on at Little Pulp is rooted in what’s referred to as “Process Art”. This is a method that doesn’t focus on the end result, but rather the process of creating and watching a painting evolve -
How Does it Work?
The cost of the program includes the two canvas’ and a specific number of open studio sessions, where you can come in, set up and work on your paintings. Once you have completed the open studio sessions, you are welcome to come back and keep working (you’ll need to sign up for each open studio session, which also includes the ability to work on printmaking projects in our shop).
Can I use the smaller canvas for a 2nd child?
No, we set up this workshop so kids can see their parents working on art right next to them. If you prefer to have your child take an art class, where you drop them off, then this program is not for you. In our experience, creating art alongside your child is a wonderful way to connect with each other.
We do have packages for parents with more than one child - see below.
Do I need to take my canvas home?
No, we store your canvas’ here in our shop. At anytime, when you feel the work is complete, you can bring the canvas home.
package includes a 30" x 40" canvas for your child and we also offer a smaller canvas for you (the parent, grandparent, babysitter, etc). We developed this workshop as a space where parents work alongside their children. The
