Time and Day:  4:00-5:15 PM on the first Tuesday of the month for k-2nd graders and the second Tuesday for 3rd-6th graders.

Cost: Each four-month session (one meeting per month) is $35. 



SEPTEMBER 4 & 11 | Sunprints

YAK members will make their own sun prints, aka cyanotypes, and learn why this simple process is so magical. We will create images using found objects and plants and the light from the sun to create one of a kind, low tech photographs.


OCTOBER 2 & 9 | Paper Clay

YAK members will make their own mushy, gushy paper clay using glue, tissue paper, and other non-toxic ingredients. Then they will make a paper sculpture.


NOVEMBER 6 & 13 | Chromatography

Create a work of art using science and color. YAK members will discover why leaves turn different colors in the fall as they learn about the science of color – or chromatography. Then YAKers will use a dye made from leaves to create a painting


DECEMBER 4 & 11 | Tempera Paint Pour

It’s all the rage! Try out this non-toxic version of paint pouring that is sure to delight. YAK members will mix and pour to create unique marbleized patterns.
