Outlined below is an example of the type of activity that will be offered. This and many more!


Diffusing Watercolor Masterpiece

Use the permanent markers to sketch out your design directly on to the diffusing paper.
The drawing can be quick and abstract, perfection is not the goal here. Think of this as a fun experiment to simply play with materials.
Next pick out a few different colors of paint and dilute them with water. You will use approximately 1-part water and 2 parts paint. Gently brush on washes of color over your marker design and watch the diffusing magic happen! Make sure not to use too much watercolor, because the colors could blend together and turn brown!
Once you are done, allow your finished masterpiece to lay flat and dry. Once it is completely dry, don’t forget to it up on display for the world to see!
