4th – 6th grade ( 1:30 – 3:30 pm)

What is an ACEO? It’s a really neat way to do art in a small format, and you can collect and trade art with other people. ACEOs may be created from anything, with anything, there’s only ONE rule. The finished product has to be 2.5” x 3.5”. That’s it!

You can make your ACEO out of paper, wood, glass, metal…or you can use colored pencils, paint, markers, charcoal…you name it! Come to the ACEO class and let Ms. Kelly show you her ACEO collection and teach you how to make your own.

On day one you will learn how ACEOs came to be, and find out how to make your own. On day two we will trade ACEOs with one another, and you will be all set to start your own ACEO collection! This class is great for girls OR boys, and we will have a really great time making our own tiny creations. See you there!
