There’s nothing better than looking at the world through rose coloured glasses. Let’s be inspired by the music of the sixties...Beatlemania, Beach Boys, The Supremes, and many more. Music changed a generation and inspired a lot of ART. Explore the art of the 60’s, while grooving to the amazing music of that decade. Create both indoors and outdoors. Tie dye it, bead it, paint it, sculpt it, all in the spirit of the 60’s. It’s super cool!!!
