  • Disguised! - Use your imagination, pen and pencil, 3D Doodle Pens, and mixed materials to design and create a disguise worthy of a secret-agent!

  • Make a Mystery - Become an author/illustrator as you create your own mystery comic with characters and a plot, all of your design.
  • Sight Unseen - Can you draw something you cannot see? Have fun using your other senses like touch and sound to explore and draw still life items.
  • Solve It! - A sculpture has been stolen! Search for clues, work the case, connect the dots, and find the missing artwork!
