Rock, Paper, Sissors - June 19-23
We will be texture hounds this week and will collect a large variety of colorful textured surfaces to use with handmade papers, photographs, paints and all sorts of mixed media to create imaginative collages.

This week we will take a trip to Disneyland in our imaginations!
