Animals have been an important subject for artists all over the world since the beginning of time.

On a wild journey through the animal kingdom, art adventurers discover a multitude of kooky critters - as well as their own creativity - while exploring various techniques, tools , textures and materials. Fabric dogs, ceramic elephants, wooden snakes, colorful dinosaurs, and clay lions with fluffly fiber manes. These are just a few of the animals created during our cool and playful art excursions.
