Kids must be accompanied by an adult to attend this workshop.

Muncao will also lead Winter Vacation Workshop: Art Classes with Carolyn Munaco, art classes for ages 8 to 12-years-old from Tuesday, February 21st through Friday, February 24th, from 1 to 3 p.m. Each day will feature a different theme - such as humpback whale acrylic painting and clay whale sculpture or multi-medium animal collage - and a variety of mediums will be used.

This series is a great opportunity to engage your child in an artistic and informative session, allowing them to learn about science and express their creative sides.

Participants may sign up for the entire workshop, or pick and choose which days they attend. "Whether committing to one week or one day, the schedule is conveniently flexible for everyone's busy lifestyles," she added.
