With the kids' winter break just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about what you can do with all that free time. Try a little wildlife and art mashup at the Mass. Audubon Visual Arts Center in Canton. The two-day program is broken up into morning and afternoon sessions, so you can register for as many or few as fits your schedule. On Dec. 27, the morning session will focus on painting, using a variety of techniques, from splatter to rollers to squishy balls. The afternoon session will let kids try their hands (literally) at pottery! They can make a masterpiece on the pottery wheel and hand-build the tallest coil pot imaginable. On Dec. 28, it's all about Massachusetts mammals. Kids can learn some fun facts, play some predator/prey games, and make their favorite mammal out of recycled materials. In the afternoon session, kids can explore their talent at digital photography. Bring the camera to the center to capture wildlife up close. The pictures will be printed, and kids will use some to make art, and have some framed. That's some wild art! Dec. 27 & 28. Morning sessions are 9 a.m. - noon. Afternoon sessions are 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Ages 8 - 12. $30 non-members, $25 members for each class session. Mass. Audubon Visual Arts Center, 963 Washington St., Canton.
