Join Michael Gillane for a week of fun, hands-on projects for ages 5+! We will begin the week by drawing and water coloring our own handmade comic books. Freedom of expression will be emphasized! The following two days, we will sculpt 3D pieces to create a unique mobile. There will be helpers in the room to aid a diversity of ages with varying degrees of complexity in their projects. This program is in collaboration with the Family Equality Council.
Space is limited, so register early! All materials will be supplied by PAAM.
