Rockford Art Museum offers Spaces Within children’s classes

From press release

Rockford Art Museum (RAM) will offer the following children’s classes in conjunction with their ongoing exhibit, Spaces Within, which runs through Jan. 9, 2011.

“To the Galaxy and Beyond!”—2-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 9, for ages 5 and older: Start off your exciting space journey by creating a galaxy with planets and stars. Using the fun method of splatter paint to create stars, this will make your picture out of this world! What fun is space if you can’t go? After that, paint your dream space shuttle to take you up, up and away!

“Martian Madness”—2-4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 13, for ages 6 and older: Find out the wonders of space as you create your own unique solar system. After your universe is created, have fun drawing the aliens that live on your planet. Creativity a must!

“Blast Off!”—2-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11, for ages 6 and older: You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to build one of these svelte spacecrafts. All you need is the right stuff: cardboard, glue, tape and a big dose of aeronautic creativity. Once your shuttle has taken you to the moon, create a Mars rover to explore the terrain.

Cost is $8 per class or all three for $20.

All supplies are included for the classes. To register, call (815) 972-2874.
