Channel your child’s inner artist

Dreary winter weather means your kids are inevitably spending more time inside and less time outdoors.

If they’re starting to feel cooped up, have them channel their extra energy into one of the Milwaukee-area’s many fun arts and crafts events. Here’s a look at a few upcoming classes in and around Brew City.

Be a Maker

From 5 to 8 p.m. every third Thursday of the month, your little ones can team up to build components for a large-scale collaborative sculpture. Mentors from the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum and Milwaukee Makerspace will introduce your kids to tools, materials, and techniques. Visit bbcmkids.org for more information.
