Are you one of the many who didn’t get tickets to Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play? Don’t fret! We’ve got a lot of fun and cheap events coming up for kids this weekend. One will technically take you out of the Slope, but we promise it will be worth the trip.
When: Friday September 20, 3:30pm
Where: Two Moon Art House & Cafe,
What: In this fun-filled class, kids get to experiment with alternative painting techniques. They’ll create their own paintbrushes using a variety of materials and things from nature such as twigs and leaves. They will also experiment with fruits and vegetables to print unique patterns, such as stamping with apples, creating flower prints with celery stalks, and experimenting with other various fruits and veggies. Using Fruiggie paint, the students will paint and print expressively to create beautiful organic masterpieces. All Fruiggie paints are non-toxic, vegan, gluten free, and fruit, vegetable, and plant based.
How much: Free!
