Family Stories Through Art Workshop

REGISTER HERE! February 3rd 1:00PM-2:30PM. $45 (10% member discount available)

In this workshop led by Sharon Santillo, you and your child partner will use simple collage techniques and writing to transform one of your family’s stories into a keepsake.

Have you ever said, “I wish I had asked my grandparents more questions” or “I wish I had written down my dad’s stories”. No art or writing experience is necessary. Together you and your child will paint the story settings for your family story. Your child will draw and color the characters. Adult will cut and glue, and together you will write the story. All materials are included. The workshop is 90 minutes, but feel free to leave when you and your partner are finished or stay a little longer if you need more time. All must be preregistered and children must have an adult partner, a parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent, or family friend.

Ideas for stories: holidays spent together, family trips and vacations, special places your family likes to go, times spent with grandparents, sleepovers with cousins, movie nights, favorite family foods and meals, family pets, hiking and camping adventures, games and sports you share, stories of your ancestors
