Free Saturday Art Class at The Lobby

Free Saturday Art Class at The Lobby

Every First Saturday of the Month: A Creative Workshop for Kids and Families 

Next Class:  Saturday, June 1st 12PM-2PM

For those off you that can’t make it out to one of our kid’s days, here are coloring pages of two paintings on display in the Lobby Gallery; Matthew Wong’s Camouflage  Bird, and Hayal Pozanti’s The World They Carry Within Them. We invite all to color in (printed out or digitally) to add your own interpretations of how color can change and add to a composition, or the artistic arrangement of the parts of a picture.

Top 5 Spots to See Free Portland Art Exhibits With Kids 

What to Expect:

Exploring the Exhibition: We’ll kick off our artistic journey by visiting our mesmerizing exhibition. Guided by our knowledgeable team, your child will discover the secrets hidden within iconic artworks. They’ll get to recreate their own versions of timeless masterpieces in a hands-on activity while learning more about the artists’ techniques, styles, and the stories that influenced their creations.

Unleash Your Child’s Creativity: Our event is not just about studying art history; it’s about empowering your child to become a budding artist themselves. In our class, your child will learn a cool technique called neurographic drawing. It’s all about experimenting with shapes and lines to create a unique work of art that’s not only beautiful to look at but encourages the mind to think outside the box. Think of it as turning lines into your child’s own secret language of creativity.

Supplies Provided: No need to worry about art supplies—we’ve got them covered. From paper to pens, everything your young artist needs will be ready and waiting.

It’s Free! We believe that art should be for everyone, and that’s why our Saturday Art Class is absolutely FREE. No hidden costs, just pure creative fun.

Artistic Souvenir: As a bonus, every child who joins our class will receive a special tote bag filled with art supplies to take home. It’s a gift to keep the creative sparks alive.

Who’s Invited: For the specific art activity, children between ages 5 to 11. Yet there is no age cut off for enjoying the art materials, the exhibition, and the gift bag. So, no matter what age, please attend, you will not be disappointed.

RSVP: As we are open to everyone who wants to attend, there is no formal reservation. Yet we love to know who is coming, so if you can, please let us know via email that you plan to attend. 

Location: Ellen Browning Building, 2871 SE Division Street, Portland, OR 97202
