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.
