Mr. Imagination To-Go

Recommended Grades K-8

Artist Gregory Warmack, aka “Mr. Imagination,” turned paint brushes into personalities. Let's do the same! Each kit includes one paintbrush, Apoxie sculpt, and baubles for students to apply as decoration. This is a messy project.

COST: $5 / participant.


Earth Collage To-Go

Recommended Grades 4–8

Artist William Hall lived in his car for many years. Consequently, he drew on small pieces of paper, then joined them to make one, large work. For this workshop each kit includes a black and white copy of Hall’s work “Pinecurving,” shiny tape, and other items to collage. Students can use crayons or markers from home. This is a clean project.  COST: $5 / participant

Fruit Painting (bring your own supplies)

Recommended any age

Artist Ruby Williams painted colorful signs to advertise her roadside produce stand. Soon, the artwork became more popular than her products. In this workshop, you provide the painting supplies, and we provide the fruit via Zoom! Students will learn about Ruby and create their own fruit painting from a still life. This may be a messy project.  COST: $2 / participant.
