Sand Painting

In this workshop you’ll create textured art using colored sand. You’ll first  learn how to apply sand by hand to an adhesive surface, and then learn five more techniques to add special effects like tie dye mixing, watercolor blending, and etching details. Choose from a variety of design templates, including animals and nature symbols. You’ll leave with one-of-a-kind textured art: up to two 5 x 7 canvases or one 8 x 10 canvas.

This is a good introduction to sand painting for children, teens, and adults of all abilities.
