Try Some New Art Techniques

money-seamless-frottage-11584015The High Museum of Atlanta has some creative activities for you to do with your family.

This one is on making colorful rubbings. Learn all about artist Max Ernst who  named this type of artwork frottage and then try to create one on your own. Hang it in your window so your neighbors can see it, or start a museum display wall at home.

Another one has you learning about artist Mary Weatherford and encourages you to do some creative movement. Check it out here.

Have fun being creative!

Choose from these classes as an outlet for creative endeavors that will leave you with beautiful, hand made items to put under the tree for loved ones. We’ll get you started early in case you love it so much you need to design gifts for everyone you know!
