April is “Community Animal Month” at Town Square, and it’s guaranteed to get a little WILD here!!!!

To help celebrate, instructor Kathy McLaughlin, is challenging students, ages 8-12, to let out their inner creative beast in this new two-part workshop on Saturday, April 17 and 24, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at Town Square! ($25 class fee includes two workshops and material costs.)

Students will learn how to use various mediums and techniques including wood, paint, beads, buttons, sharks teeth, and more, to design their fierce mixed media portrait inspired by their favorite animal or pet. Kids will build their works of art on a 12″ x 16″ canvas and use an assortment of materials to create a fantastical background. Once the setting for their animal is complete, students will paint and embellish to enhance their creature.

Ms. McLaughlin is excited to share unique techniques to help your kids use their imagination and bring their animal-themed masterpieces to life! Are your kids up for the challenge? Seats are limited so register today!
