Saturday, August 5, 2023 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

Beat the heat by creating a colorful ice-cream-themed craft indoors at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Discover how to make your own puffy paint through everyday art materials. Scoop your “ice cream” paint onto a cardboard “cone,” and add colorful “sprinkles!” Watch how the textured paint transforms your cardboard into your favorite cold dessert flavor. What flavor will you make?

Note: This activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.  This project takes about 24 hours to dry, so it will still be wet when you take it home.  A plate will be provided for easy transport. This is not an edible project.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20-minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.
