Fire in the Belly Artmaking Workshop FOR KIDS!


  • ValleyArts Inc 400 Jefferson St Orange United States (map)

For Grades 2 - 5.

Fueled by the fire in their own bellies, this workshop is designed for children who want to make work and have the chance to experiment deeply with mixed media on paper. Using a series of prompts, guidance and a range of materials, students will engage in artmaking that prioritizes organic process, individual expression, and the idea of what matters most to them. We will utilize the playful, experimental nature of the artistic process to create a series of pieces based on what we dare to imagine together. The last session will be an Open Gallery for families to see the work of the young artists and to hear what they have to say about it.


No experience necessary, all expertise welcome.
$165 for a six week session.
