Fall Art Workshops at MCA

The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts, Visual Arts Division invites area children to participate in two unique art workshops lead by area artist and educator; Brianna Haupt.

The first workshop in the series is “Mighty Mixed Media”. During this workshop students will create their very own “own of a kind” sketchbook using a variety of materials. Students will get to flex their creative muscles and discover new ways to turn everyday objects into art. This workshop is on Sat. Oct. 10, 10:30am- Noon for students in grade 2-5.

Workshop number two is “On Trail with Peter Rabbit” and during this workshop students will go on an art adventure, while exploring the journey of the beloved literary character, Peter Rabbit. Students will use water-color, ink, and mixed media to create a map of Peter’s travels. As an added bonus, artwork will be on display in the Ben Miller Lobby at the Page Center for Performing arts on the Saint Mary’s Campus Oct. 31-Nov.10, so that patrons of the Page Series production of “Peter Rabbit Tales” on Nov. 10, 2015 at 6:30pm can enjoy the artwork. This workshop is on Saturday Oct. 24, 10:30am-Noon for students in grades K-2 and 1-2:30pm for grades 3-5.

Each workshop is only $15 for students to participate in and includes all supplies. Workshop participants will even receive a free ticket to the “Peter Rabbit Tales” performance compliments of the Page Theatre.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
