What you’ll find at Rendezvous for Kids is a little bit different every year.
Here’s what’s not different: the basic structure. That means kids registered in the main program will participate in three 45-minute art workshops, one of which is always movement-based. Besides that, they, along with the kids in the preschool and walk-on program, will have opportunity to visit various “art stops” — hands-on activities ranging from fabric art to jewelry to creating bubbles.
Besides making art, every kid in the program will get a lunch and enjoy lunchtime entertainment.
What else will you find? Here are a few things you’ll encounter at this year’s Rendezvous for Kids:
Collage. If you’ve ever wanted to collage a flamingo with tissue paper, glitter and rhinestones, here’s your chance. Moscow’s Julene Ewert is teaching a collage workshop. On the other day, she’ll teach you how to create a two-dimensional robot with dictionary paper, wooden rulers and more.
Stage Performance. This year’s movement workshop is a drama project. Each day, you will have a chance to perform for the other kids at the program during the lunchtime entertainment.
Watercolors. At one of the workshops in the main program, you’ll learn a few different watercolor techniques — then pick your favorite and create a project.
Face Painting. If you think paint on your face is more fun than no paint, you’ll want to visit the art stop hosted by Moscow High School’s Environmental Club. With their help, no more plain old face for you.
