A spin off of the Muddy Buddies kids ceramics class, Mucky Buddies is a non-ceramics family sculpture class. We’ll make our own sculpture and art materials using mostly household items and explore different ways of creating and having fun with our homemade materials. We’ll make slime, salt dough, model magic and raid the recycle bin for project materials as well, and then sculpt all kinds of creations from monsters to holiday ornaments. Think mad-scientist meets artist. Most weeks, things will get messy, so be prepared. Kids might want to create a “mad artist” notebook, to make notes on our experiments.

Family members of all ages are welcome, while ages under 6yrs will require hands on assistance of their parents or older siblings.

All participants must wear a mask and will be screened upon arrival. Please allow a minimum of 15 minutes prior to class start for the registration process.
