A few Saturdays ago, Ava and I were invited to The Pod (just off of Commercial Drive) to take part in a silk-screening class.
Founded by Artist Carlin Sandor, The Pod offers classes in Painting, Textile, Book, Exploration, and Printing Arts, for children ages 4-14 years. Parents can drop off their children on Friday evenings for the Date Night class...a night out for couples and an art class/movie night for their kids (popcorn included).
Ava really enjoyed preparing her images to silk-screen onto her t-shirt...Mommy delighted in watching Ava confidently choose her colours and shapes...Daddy walked up Commercial Drive to find a little snack....
See The Pod site for more information on classes, schedules/fees and contact information - http://www.thepodarts.com.
The class we attended was complimentary, and I've chosen to write this post. I found Carlin to be very patient and positive with the children. I would recommend the classes to other parents.
