Marbling Baseball Hats for Families
This class is designed to provide a fun activity together for parents and children. We will learn the basics of color theory and how to make vibrant hues float on water to create beautiful, marbled prints. The first part of the day will be a guided activity making simple designs with your favorite colors. You will also have time to practice with the correct distribution of paint on the surface of the water to discover your favorite patterns. When ready, with the help of the instructors, you will marble 3 baseball hats of your choice (2 kids size and 1 adult size).Additional hats will be available for purchase if you find yourself in the groove of creating!
