Craft supplies laid out with the words Bad Art Afternoon

Bad Art Afternoon: Sat, May 23 at 3 p.m., ages 12+

Art should be fun!  Let's be creative and make some dreadful.

Use our supplies to create some bad art. At the end of the hour we'll select the best of the worst! You can make as many pieces of bad art (sculptures, paintings, collages, etc.) as you desire.  

During the last 20 minutes we'll set up our Bad Art Exhibition and vote for our favorite pieces.  Is your art the most tacky, the most useless, and the most glittery?  Maybe you'll be crowned the winner of Bad Art Afternoon.
