2nd Saturday Workshop: Wax Crayon Art
June 10 | 11 am - 3 pm
Join us on Saturday, June 10 for a free, fun, and easy 2nd Saturday Workshop to learn how to repurpose old wax crayons to create bright, colorful works of art. Led by Amy Castine, this workshop will show guests how to use melted wax and artists blending tools, along with a little heat to make colorful, abstract designs and landscapes. Drop in anytime between 11 am and 3 pm to create your crayon masterpiece!
This workshop is open to all ages and all abilities. Because heating tools will be used to melt the wax crayons, staff and volunteers will be on hand to supervise.
Art Enables 2nd Saturday Workshops are free, family-friendly, inclusive, and open to the public. Register is recommended to secure your spot. We may close registration if we reach capacity.
Art Enables is committed to providing access to everyone. If you require accommodation during your visit, please make a note in the RSVP or email us at email@example.com.
