IT IS TIME TO SET THE WILD BEAST FREE FROM THE CAGE!!!!
Or maybe mom and dad just need a night out…
Join us at ESAC for First Friday Kids Lab! Kids can participate in varying art projects in the ESAC studios, while parents are free to roam ESAC and the downtown hot spots in our favorite night of the month!
Kids Labs are inspired by ESAC’s exhibits!
Parents, look forward to discussing the exhibiting artwork with your kids after the event!
Ages 5 and Up are welcome to attend Kids Lab. Younger children may have alternative projects and lessons. Students will be in two separate age groups.
Upcoming First Friday Kids Labs:
REGISTER NOW! Oct 5th – Big and Bold, Artistic Animals (Gulf Shores Zoo will be visiting ESAC for October’s First Friday) with Instructor Reanna Watson
Nov 1st – Hand painted Gourd Sculptures (Based on work by Exhibiting Artist Howard Smith) with Instructor Charlsie Jones
Dec 7th – Mini Masterpieces (Based on work by Exhibiting Artist and Curator Cat Pope) with Instructor Reanna Watson
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE! Join Reanna and let your animal spirit loose! Following an animal encounter with the Gulf Shores Zoo, we will unleash our minds to find our spirit animals.
Do you run fast like a cheetah?
Hang from trees like a sloth?
Snuggle up like a kitten?
Unhinge your jaw to devour pizza like a python?
Instead of fur or scales, rather than claws or paws, our animals will be created with pastels, paints, collage, and any other materials we can find! In addition to our animalistic, artistic experience, we will paint mini pumpkins because it is Fall, Y’all!
No supplies necessary. ESAC will provide hummus and pita, fruit, and cheese!
While the kids are away, the parents can PLAY! Enjoy the fun of First Friday with wine and exhibits while your kids chow down on fruit, cheese, hummus, and pita and create their own masterpieces. Drop off the kiddos, stroll through ESAC’s four galleries, then head out to the streets of Fairhope to explore the local art scene.
Contact Reanna Watson, ESAC’s super serious Academy Director, with any questions.
Please dress your kiddos in old clothes because the art supplies will stain clothing. Let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies.
