Creating art with fellow Phoenicians under the beauty of an air conditioning system is a summer day activity we'll fully support.

We've scoured local museums and studios to bring you a variety of sessions to either brush up before the school year kicks in, stay creative inside until it starts to cool down, or enlist the kids while you take your work poolside ...

1. Handcrafted cards and envelopes at Art Intersection

The art of handmade cards is back in style (thank you, letterpress). Recapture the techniques of making greeting cards and thank-you notes at Art Intersection's class on July 27 from 7 to 9 p.m..

See where to sign up after the jump.

Register and pay the $35 fee ahead of time on their website. Art Intersection is located at 207 N. Gilbert Road, Suite 201, Gilbert, AZ 85234

7. Knitting for kids at Practical Art
It's just a one time offer, so take advantage of it. How awesome(ly quirky) would it be to go back to school and show off something you knitted?

On July 19 from 9 to 11 a.m., Practical Art will be showing kids the art of stitching (wallets, hackey sacks, bookmarks, etc.). Aside from their other summer classes aimed at kids, if you want to learn more, they have intermediate classes for additional quick stitch learning.

Practical Art is located at 5070 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85012 and you can reserve a space for $25 by calling 602-264-1414.
