Get your teens and tweens out of the house and into the studio/garden/laboratory/kitchen.
Starting this Saturday, PHX Art Lab is hosting week and daylong arts and crafts camps -- we're just disappointed big kids can't join in on the fun (though they promise adult classes are coming).
Classes are for 8 to 16 year olds and run 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. Check out camp subjects and more details after the jump.
The art lab's weeklong classes ($195) range from metalwork and science (think crafts and investigations with bugs, CSI and DNA) as well as masquerade- and environment-themed projects. They're also open for Saturday classes ($45), which include gardening, experiments with light and photosynthesis, music and music making, and monoprinting.
Classes include lunch and extended care is available -- you just might end up with a few more projects on the fridge.
PHX Art Lab is on Seventh Street, just north of Osborn. Registration can be done online at www.phxartlab.com
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
