SAVE $30 BY REGISTERING FOR BOTH 9-12 YEAR OLD SESSIONS WITH THE COUPON CODE ASI2019: Happy Accidents

Play-Doh was accidentally invented in 1955 by Joseph and Noah McVicker while trying to make a wallpaper cleaner. When a Canon engineer rested his hot iron on his pen by accident, ink was ejected from the pen’s point a few moments later. This principle led to the creation of the inkjet printer.  Lots of accidents have created some great products.  Take your experiments to the extreme in this class centered around failure.  Mix all the paints, iron plastic, and do all sorts of things you are usually told not to.

COLLABORATIVE CANVASES: Youth ART CAMP FOR All ABILITIES

ArtHaus is excited to hold its first different abilities summer art camp event in the Decorah community.  Karen Bendtsen, a Special Education educator from the Twin Cities, known for her use of art practices, will be leading the event which will focus on painting.  The artists will make individual canvases and work on a group project for display in the community.  Also spin art and shaving cream art will be available.

This camp is designed with the student in mind so registration is a must.  Parents should include in the “What do we need to know?” box any adaptations your child will need.  This may include anything from “My child will be attending with a PCA, parent or sibling,” and “My child uses a wheel chair” to “My child requires hand-over-hand instruction.”

The cost is $35 per family so parents and siblings can participate as well.  Scholarships are available.

We are holding this camp at Phelps Park so students can rotate between creating art and playing on the equipment.

 

Price is per canvas: Cookie and Canvas: Toy Story

All ages are welcome to join ArtHaus in paint-alongs in the ArtHaus Studio. Enjoy a treat of cookies and milk alongside your paintings. Parents are welcome to register to paint alongside their children or collaborate on a painting together. Price is per canvas. Walking School Bus is provided from John Cline and Montessori.
