Join instructor, Genelle Contreras for our next installment of KIDS@CAM. Works of Natural Art for children ages 6 to 11 years old takes place two a month from March-May.  Mix and match days based on your child’s schedule and interests.

Per class fee is $12 CAM members/$15 non members.  All materials will be provided.

Each day children will use both physical and observational skills to create items that will echo things found in nature all the while exploring principles and elements of design such as color, form, composition and balance.

Our project-

  • March 10—Feather Pins: Kids will paint and draw on feathers then attaching them to pin backs to create fabulous pins that can be worn or gifted. They will even make a lovely backpack swag!
  • March 24—Textured Stone Magnets: Children will work with clay to create a stone like base and then press in plant forms before adding a magnet back.
  • April 14Celestial Sea Shell Pendants: Kids will shape, mold and paint the pendants before adhering the shell to them. Then they will attach them to necklace, bracelet and/or key chains.
  • April 28Wrapped Wood Wind Chime: Kids will wrap yarn around the stick focusing on making pleasing color palettes. They will finish off the project by attaching bells and beads to the stick and then assembling the chime.
  • May 5Dream Catchers: Kids will use both sides of their brains in creating this project that they can then embellish with beads and feathers.
  • May 19—Printing with Plants: Children will create up to 5 greeting cards using the natural pigments of plants and then various other supplies will be used to embellish the cards.

Cost for each class is $12 CAM members/$15 non members. Class size: min. 6/max. 12. For online registration visit or contact the Art Education Dept. at (541) 267-3901.
