Beginner's Art Studio (Drop In): Mon, Wed-Sat 10:30am to 4:30pm, Sun 12:30pm to 4:30pm
Art has never been so much fun. Children and adults can explore their creative sides in this fully engaging, open-ended art experience. Materials change daily, trained facilitators assist with the artistic process, while children create masterpieces. There is simply no better art experience in Oak Park.
Paint Covered Wednesdays: Wed 10:30am to 4:30pm
Paint Covered Wednesdays at Wonder Works provides children the artistic opportunity of a lifetime. Children use a large variety of paints, styles and canvases as they learn to tell their stories, to create new things and expand their understanding of the world around them. Painting helps children by enhancing problem solving skills, improving fine motor skills, boosting self-esteem and allows them to express themselves in a positive way.
Story Time: Wednesdays at 11am and Fridays at noon
Discover the world of make believe by immersing yourself in new worlds and new adventures. Story telling is an art form older than writing and still engages children and adults in a way only stories can.
Transportation Works: Fridays 10am to noon
We'll be experimenting with the forces that make vehicles go, including gravity, moving air, and electric motors. Race cars down ramps and through tunnels, launch a paper helicopter, release a balloon-powered car, and see what's inside a remote-controlled toy car.
