Looking for a fun activity for a birthday party? Need a new idea for team building at the office? Want your homeschoolers to learn more about art?
Verge’s Tour and Art Activity gives guests the chance to tour our gallery spaces, and be creative with your own group. With three different options for hands on art activities, you’re able to choose what interests you! During your time at Verge 2 staff members will give a tour of the current exhibit, and be available to share insights about the work and answer questions guests might have. Staff will lead an art activity in the classroom. A demo will be given followed by work time for guests to be creative and make their very own work of art!
Art Activity Choices
PRINTMAKING Participants will get to use all the tools for printmaking and take home their creations! This craft includes paint and can get messy- but is super fun! Verge provides aprons to protect clothes against wayward paint!
3D WEAVING This activity takes weaving a step up from traditional loom weaving and into the realm of the 3-dimensional. Participants will learn how to make a 3-d weave using everyday items and be able to take all the materials home to continue the fun!
CLAY BUILDING This activity includes building a ceramic mug, planter, lidded box, or sculpture. Glazing is not included because it would require a 2nd session but participants are welcome to come by our Drop-in Clay studios any Saturday. Discounts for Drop-in Clay are not provided.
PRICING $300 for up to 15 guests. Any additional guest participating in art activity will require an additional fee of $15 per guest.
Cost of package includes:
-Tour of our galleries
-A 1-2 hour demo and hands on activity with materials included
PLEASE NOTE A minimum of 1 adult per 7 children is required at all times. Verge will provide two staff members unless otherwise requested. The art activities are very hands on, while snacks are allowed in the classroom there may not be much time to eat!
