Ready to get out of the house and try something new this spring? The Art Center in Edina offers a plethora of opportunities for children, teens and adults of all abilities to tap into their creative side and explore new mediums—at both the Art Center and Edina Senior Center. And this April, there are some especially fun offerings.
Does your child love dinosaurs? Children ages 18 months to 6 years old can participate in Dino Discovery, which involves creating a dinosaur diorama (and taking home a toy dinosaur). $21/session; 9:45–10:30 a.m. and 10:45–11:30 a.m; April 9
Every Friday in April, kids ages 4–6 can try our new art forms, materials and techniques to create new projects—from painting and sculpture to drawing and collage. $21/session; 10–10:45 a.m. Fridays, April 1-29
Encourage your teen to explore and express their creativity through weekly Teen Art Escape—an opportunity to create art with their peers, with a mentor on-site to work with students. $90/session; 4:30-6:30 p.m., Tuesdays, March 29–May 24
Get a global perspective with Family Fun Saturdays: Art Around the World. At this once-a-month event, adults and children (ages 5–12) can explore art together and learn about artforms from around the world. In April, participants can learn about and create Mexican Folk Art. $30/session; 10 a.m.–noon, April 16
Adults can also explore mosaics, watercolor painting, portrait painting and drawing, figure drawing, oil and acrylic painting, and poetry at the Art Center throughout the month of April and beyond. Head to the Art Center’s website for the full spring/summer activities directory.
