About This Class

Are you a busy mom or dad looking for a creative rainy day project for the kids? A teenage babysitter responsible for entertaining the troops while mom and dad have a date night? An after school care-giver on the hunt for more creative play? This project, inspired by the work of American artist, Jim Dine, is fun for all ages and all skill levels.
