September 11
Van Gogh Impasto. Use pallet knives instead of brushes to create your version of a Van Gogh masterpiece. To replicate the thick strokes, we’ll create using pallet knives, brushes for mixing, and mixing paint with flour to give it depth. This one is based on the hayfields.  We have also done sunflowers which would be fun to do in the spring.

The Scream! By Edvard Munch. This one is fun for Halloween themed! It’s all about doing your own interpretation of one of the most famous pieces ever! What makes you scream?  Spiders? Ice Cream? Your Best Friend? Or something spookier? Learn about Munch and create your own. Suitable for older kids and adults who want to do something with their families.
