At today's Fine Arts Series workshop, we sculpted one of Wayne Thiebaud's paintings. Yes, you read that right. We sculpted a painting. For the Kindergarten through 8th grade group, we mixed together a "play dough" made of powdered sugar and icing. While it was messy, it was delicious.
The high school group used corn starch and hair conditioner. These will get hard and last indefinitely.
The next Fine Arts Series event will be a painting workshop. $10 per student for CRA students and $12 per student for non-CRA students. We hope to see you all there!
