Mixing Pink With Green


Mixing pink and green sounds like a major color disaster, but when you add fabulous art, tasty wine and a little bit of fun to the palette you get a Pink Bus AZ/ Green Dolls Studio Wine & Art Crawl Party! Join us on February 7, 2015 when we take our first destination tour through some West Valley Art scenes and make our final stop at the White Tanks Regional Park for an open air painting. During our party we will explore bold confident lines and bright fun-filled color combinations. We will create a fresh colorful art piece you will be excited to hang in your space. Sign up and invite your friends to join this colorful art tour of the town!

Classes this summer will include clay, painting, drawing, up-cycled designs and mixed media. WHAM art programs are designed to help all families and students overcome obstacles faced in accessing quality arts education and to enhance these students performance in school.

Upcycled Art

What is up-cycled art? It is the art of taking items that are due for the trash or recycle bin and re-designing them into beautiful, unique art. This art form is a valuable process for children. It helps them recognize ways to reuse materials, waste less and be concerned with their own environment. In addition they are engaged in projects that promote innovation and ingenuity. Teach your little artists the importance of caring for the earth and individual expression, share with them up-cycled art!
