 Featuring artwork by students in the ROAR Workshop After School Program (K-3rd graders from Ohlone Elementary School) and a project that invites public participation in conjunction with TinkerLab, Public Paints explores the theme of empowerment through collective expression and collaboration. People of all ages are invited both to view finished work and to participate in a collaborative artistic process through the creation of a large painting project during the course of the weekend.

The ROAR Workshop After School Program (founder Melissa Wyman and CASP Artist) combines super fun, age appropriate self-awareness and self-confidence building with art exploration. Participants practice their animal-ninja skills while exploring the link between joyful curiosity and observational skills (being aware of our surroundings) and art making, mindfulness and creativity.

TinkerLab (founder Rachelle Doorley and CASP Artist) inspires families and educators to foster a love for making through hands-on art and tinkering projects. We deliver inspiration through our free blog content, best-selling book, TinkerLab: A Hands-on Guide for Little Inventors, online classes, Art Start challenge, and in-person workshops.

*Also featuring Yoga Cards for Children! – A fun and inspiring deck of 28 cards to get little yogis moving and laughing by Krassi Harwell.
