Activities For Kids in Coos Bay

March 19, 2015

Spring Break Art Camp

For many people, Spring Break represents that time of year when school is replaced with activities so far removed from the world of academia that young people everywhere are able to relax or at the very least distract themselves from thinking about tests and term papers. But what about those parents with young kids who wish to take their children on vacation and provide them with fun yet intellectually stimulating activities?

Discover fun activities for kids in Coos Bay Oregon. At the end of this month, guests of Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort will have the opportunity to easily have their children (ages 6-12) participate in a series of art classes at the nearby Coos Art Museum. From March 23 – 27, the museum will be leading a different art class each day as a part of their Spring Break Art Camp.

From 10:00 am – 12:00 pm each day, a guest instructor will lead a course focusing on that day’s specific topic. This will give parents the opportunity to explore Coos Bay for a few hours or enjoy a romantic lunch by the water while the Coos Art Museum offers the following art classes for kids:

Mural Monday allows students to help create large mixed media murals that will be displayed in the museum’s Art Education Gallery.

Tangle Tuesday will incorporate the Zentangle technique which is a method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns.

Watercolor Wednesday teaches the basics of color theory, watercolor application, and proper mixing techniques.

Art Theory Thursday will focus on composition and perspective as students sketch based on existing pieces of art. Each student will leave with a notebook that contains their work from the day.

Felting Friday will teach students how to create a felted bowl using a resist and wet felting technique.

Planning a vacation is a lot of work especially when planning activities for kids is involved but Highway West Vacations and Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort are always seeking out information about local events that our guests may enjoy.
