It’s Kids Week at the Center for Health & Wellbeing!

Looking for the perfect family-friendly activity to keep your little ones’ minds – and hands – busy this summer? Unlock their creativity in this polymer clay class. Under the careful guidance of clay artist Liz Ktichens, your young artists will learn techniques for creating flat characters out of clay. They’ll leave the class with their own little “family” of figures that you’ll take home and back in your own oven.

All materials will be provided.

The $10/kid program fee includes instruction and all materials. Parents do not need to purchase a ticket to attend this class, but we kindly request you remain on the Center for Health & Wellbeing campus during the class. For parents of older, independent children, you can use the time to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee at Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen, use our free indoor walking track or get some work done with our free building-wide WiFi while relaxing in one of our many lounge areas. For our smaller artists, we request you remain in the room for the duration of the activity.

This program is presented by Liz Kitchens and Ann Goodpasture and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
