Crafty Kids is for you to use their own imagination and creativity using a wide variety of materials--painting, leather, wood, metal, clay, and a whole lot more!  Projects can be as simple or complex as you choose; you get to decide.
Anyone between first and eighth grades is welcome.  All projects can work for many skill levels so come--and bring a friend.  I hope to see you soon!
