Winter Break WorkshopS for Kids!

Tuesday, January 2 through Friday, January 5, 2018

Need some help giving the kids something fun to do while they're on break for the holidays? The University of Toledo Department of Art will present two 4-day workshops during winter break - a morning workshop (9 a.m. to Noon) and an afternoon workshop (1-4 p.m.). There will be a supervised lunch break in between the workshops. Lunch is not provided so students are encouraged to pack a lunch and beverage. The workshops are $60 each or $105 for both. All materials are included.

1pm to 4pm

So many children enjoyed our wizard camp this past summer that we decided to bring it back but with all new wizarding projects! New this time are projects that include fabric painting, hand-sewing magic puppets, creating a spell book, and a magical traveling case to keep all their new creations in. We will also do wands again, but using an exciting new technique. 


COST for Kids Workshops

Each 4-day workshop is just $60 or $105 for both, and all materials are included. Your child will create several take-home projects from each workshop. Payment is due in full by the first day of the workshop.
