With the after taste of quarantine still fresh it’s hard not to jump at any chance to get out and do something other than grocery shopping.  Although it’s very important that we all continue to stay vigilant with our health, keeping to the routine of washing our hands often, sterilizing our homes, work environments and yes, wearing our masks.  Personally I think the change in the way the world runs has effected our kids more than any of us.  They’ve been through more with this than any of us.  The Ellen Noel Art Museum is hosting an “Adventures in Art Program”.  They are taking registrations for the program right now so if you’re interested it might be a good idea to sign up now just in case it fills up.  Students can expect to delve into the worlds of art with gallery walks, art history and creative studio art classes for children ages 6 – 12.  Here is a schedule of the upcoming Adventures in Arts Classes:

Sunday:  Ceramics, Create your own clay critter inspired by artist Diana Kersey’s work.  All pieces will be fired in the Museum’s Kiln, Fee is $25

Dec 6:  Painting-Have fun making acrylic paintings of everyday objects such as shoes and pets in the style of artist Maira Kalman.  Fee is $20

Jan 10 Fashion Design-Tour “Betrothed: 250 Years of Wedding Fashions” and try your hand at fashion design by making paper dolls or heroes and the accessories to go along.  Fee is $20
