Through a combination of interactive programs and hands-on play, children have the opportunity to take pictures, explore our galleries and discover new artists. This unique exposure provides the foundation for creativity and critical thinking, plus encourages a connection to the world around them.

UPCOMING EVENTS

KALEIDO-SCOPE IT!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2017, 1-3PM

What's better than just looking through a kaleidoscope? Why, shooting through one of course! Come experiment and create cool effects by taking pictures through mirror-lined kaleidoscopes large enough to place your camera inside. Also, have fun taking photos using apps that allow you to turn any image into a upside-down and spin-around masterpiece! Capture fractured views, reflect cool angles, and multiply textured surfaces to make unique, one-of-a-kind images.

All of our participants were eager to design a special card and offer their thoughts of love, encouragement and thanks!

a "message" from our programming director:

I always appreciate seeing families come together to share in a creative learning experience. But our "Messages of Love" activity was designed to take the level of engagement one step further, combining an artistic activity with an opportunity to give back to the men and women who served in our nation's armed forces. I'm grateful for the opportunity to present these programs, and for each and every family that attends and makes it a success! Regarding this particular event, I would like to offer a hearfelt "thanks" to all the children who made Valentine's Day cards for our Art in Action participants, which includes veterans currently attending classes here at Daytona State College as well as those from the local community.

 

PAPER BLOOMS: DECORATIVE FLOWER VASES

SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1-3PM

Come make a personalized flower vase that is bursting with colorful paper blooms and pictures of you!
