Do your kids love to be creative? This holiday season, take advantage of the many arts and crafts classes at the Eden Prairie Art Center, Kidcreate Studio in Eden Prairie, and Unearthed Arts in Waconia.
Eden Prairie Art Center
The art center provides unique art classes for kids of all ages. Kids will have fun creating hand-printed holiday cards and paper, and they can make Christmas crafts like ornaments to decorate the tree. Furthermore, during winter break, kids can do canvas painting and attend the Art Academy. Perfect for the budding artist, these classes are meant to be educational as well as fun.
Kidcreate Studio offers a wide range of classes, from sculpting to glitter to painting. There is something for every child––popular themes include Pokémon, Minecraft, Angry Birds, the Magical Pink Unicorn Workshop, American Girl Style Workshop and the Glitter Galore Camp. The age recommendations for each class vary from 18 months to 12 years. Bring your kids to these classes for some festive fun and creativity. There are also Mommy’s Time Off and Date Night classes, so grown-ups can enjoy some much-needed relaxation while the kids have fun.
This shop and studio blends friendship with creativity in its holiday art classes. At the once-a-month Paint & Lemonade class, kids can enjoy lemonade while working on a painting. This specific class will even be held during winter break for kids who just can’t get enough of it. Parents can request Unearthed Arts to host their kid’s birthday party, or even just a simple Art Date. For the older kids (ages 13 and up), the class Art with Jane will offer an introduction to the medium of the kid’s choice. Mediums include watercolor, acrylic, drawing, pastel and oil. The class focuses on light and dark values, mixing colors, brush stroke technique and design.
