Saturday Morning Art WORKSHOPS

If you have kids ages 8-13 who want to try something creative, we have several Saturday morning art workshops. The workshops teach basic crafting skills such as sewing, crocheting, woodburning and book binding. The topics and dates are listed below. The workshops are Saturdays from 9 a.m. to  12 Noon. The workshops are $35 each and include all materials, tools and supplies needed to create the project. The images shown are just samples of what your child could create. The workshop presenter will have lots of templates and design ideas for each workshop for your child to choose from.

The workshops will be held in the UToledo Center for the Visual Arts (CVA), next to the Toledo Museum of Art. Map to CVA
