Free ‘Adventures in Art’ event on Aug. 23 for children ages 6-12

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook School of the Arts will proudly present a free event, ‘Adventures in Art,’ for children ages 6 to 12 on Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.

This day of enjoyment and education will provide a variety of activities that encourages children to learn new crafts while having a unique and varied exposure to the wonderful world of art and creativity.

Learning opportunities will include:

• Shiburi – which utilizes paper and dyes to create a unique piece of art by folding paper that’s been dipped in dye and then pressed. This newly-created piece of art is then used to decorate greeting cards, or even bud vases or candle holders. Also, it can be used as handmade wrapping paper.

• Artistic garden tiles – created by using ceramic roof tiles that will be painted or stamped. Using acrylic paints, brushes and sponge stamps these unusual tiles can create a unique garden or welcome sign for yards or gardens.

• Creative printmaking – will be used to make one-of-a-kind art prints on paper. Children will learn the basics of printmaking.

• Zentangle – the fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns or even doodles. Anyone can do it, easy-to-learn, relaxing and a fun way to create art. This method is wonderful for children because it increases focus and creativity, while providing artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. There is no right or wrong way to make the designs. This is perfect for anyone that likes to doodle with pen and paper and draw patterns.

This event is being offered free, thanks in part to Del Rey Avocado Company. Reservations are required. Space is limited so it’s important to call (760) 728-6383 and reserve space quickly.
