Let The Littles Get Their Art On at Oil and Cotton While You Prep for Thanksgiving

Are you looking for something to occupy your kiddos while you hit the supermarket/cook pies/clean your house/brine a turkey on Wednesday? Me too. So I’m happy (relieved) to report that we’re in luck, as our friends at Oil and Cotton are offering two half-day art camps for ages 5-12.

First there’s “Savory Still Life” from 9 a.m. – noon where the littles will learn to draw fall vegetables and native Texas herbs and spices. Students will then turn their drawings into print plates to share and make layered compositions that they will paint and take home.

Then that afternoon from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. they can take the “Fall Fibers” camp where they’ll weave, stitch, and sculpt, using traditional handwork to finish functional and decorative objects.

Each camp is $40, and campers who take both morning and afternoon sessions can bring a lunch and stay all day. Done and done.
