Pysanky and Painting - Meet the Artist

Crystal Potthoff - Prayerful Arts, LLC

Crystal Potthoff, pysanky artist, will be sharing her passion for this prayerful and meditative art. Pysanky is an ancient art form involving layers of wax and dye applied to eggshells – ranging in size from quail to ostrich. Pysanky written by Crystal and some of her "Egghead" friends will be on display. Also included in the art exhibit are a wide variety of acrylic and mixed media painting reflective of Crystal's desire to bring the joy found throughout the world into the hearts of others.

Peoria Playhouse Children's Museum - Real Tools Workshop: Light & Shadow

Real Tools workshops teach children how to make and how to invent. They show children how to solve problems — and it compels them to find the problems they want to solve.

Artists can use light and shadow to add special effects to their art pieces. In this Real Tools Workshop we will be creating an art piece that is affected by light or shadow. How will it change if you shine light on it? What does its shadow look like? Use your imagination to create a piece of art that is affected by light and shadow!

Just try it! Wheel Throwing

In this wheel throwing class, learn the basics of working with clay on the wheel. You will learn the proper techniques and methods of keeping the clay piece centered and balanced as well as how to pull the clay up into a cylinder or bowl shape. No experience is needed and you will be amazed at what you can learn during this class.

The ONE for me

​The one for me, you are. The cutest bowl in all the galaxy. We will teach you how to paint this simple little bowl in just a few simple steps!
