with Melissa Hendrixon

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 13, 2022 at 10:30 am
2 additional sessions through Apr 24, 2022

Friends and family members from all over the United States and even the world are invited to spend time together in our Virtual Family Art Academy. Join our PAFA art educator live on zoom, and make a fun creative projects with materials found mostly at home.

In January we celebrate the start of 2022 and the Lunar New Year! Make fun tiger-inspired crafts to ring in the Year of Tiger and learn about the creatures featured in the Chinese Zodiac stories.

In February we celebrate Valentine’s Day. We will explore how Valentine’s Day cards have evolved over the years and make own unique Valentine’s Day cards using modern and historic techniques!

Every year March is designated to honor women’s contributions in American history. Learn about the wonderful and diverse women artists represented in PAFA’s collection and make your own art piece inspired by their work.

In April we celebrate the start of spring and the upcoming summer season with nature-themed project combining different art making techniques and materials. While getting into the summer-ready mood, you will also have a chance to sample our Summer Art Camp activities and learn about PAFA’s Art Camp 2022.

While each Family Arts Academy workshop might need a small number of specific materials most projects will use the following base set of supplies that you might already have at home: white paper, construction paper, scissors, glue stick, coloring materials, pencil/eraser, and watercolors.
