Fantasy Pets
Saturday, November 18th
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
For ages 6 – 9 (Accompanied by an adult)
Fee: $10 per child ($5 members)

Young artists, in the company of an adult caretaker, will be invited to choose from a variety of small toy “pets” provided for them to pick from. After choosing their pet, attendees will create tiny habitats for their chosen creature, decorating small plastic container “enclosures” however they think suits their new friend! Discussion of what this imaginary pet would appreciate in a home will be encouraged, as well as creative and unusual ideas for how to arrange their mini-habitats. A wide variety of options and materials will be provided to encourage each individual child to let their imagination run wild! (Just to be extra clear–there will be no actual live plants or animals!)
