THURSDAY, AUGUST 1 | 4:30 PM | AGES 4-12 | FREE
Join Shine’s founder and director Aaron Goldschmidt and art specialist and Southampton native Christina Kane Sahr as they lead a workshop for children 4-12 inspired by the current Photo Ark exhibit.
Participants will be encouraged to engage in meaningful conversations about the photos and then create their own animal using mixed media and photography.
Shine is a one-stop-shop for urban kids and modern families. We take children’s enrichment classes and birthday parties out of the classroom and make them mobile. Translation: creativity, exploration, and fun come to you (so every child can Shine their light).
Shine is for families of all make-ups to learn, play, and party. Our goal is simple: to unlock individuality and potential through exploration, creativity, and acceptance. Based in traditional teaching philosophies, but with a modern understanding of today’s urban child, we believe in inspiring both children and families through experience and community. Within every child is a light. It is our job to help them Shine.
