Splat Lab is a mix of play, imagination arts and science. We will start with a fun STEAM project such as fizz balls or potion-making that requires materials you already have at home. This semester we will make ooze, do some rainbow painting, create a snake city and make rain jars!

Upcoming Schedule for STEM & Art Play by Splat Lab
Anthropology Arts is an enrichment program, under the umbrella of Voices Advance LLC, that provides unique arts-based cultural studies classes to youth across New York City—and now they're online! Anthro classes use art-making and creativity to learn about culture. Each class features a mini-lesson, kid share out, and art-making activity. Our classes are playful and focus on creativity. Kids who may not necessarily be into art love Anthro because they enjoy the stories we bring alive and the focus on creating projects in whatever way is cool for them. Typical classes include things like making Chinese dragons, Egyptian Mummy cases, Learning about the real Moana, and making Aztec shields.
We also offer a suite of enrichment classes called Splat Lab! We are proud to bring the beloved After School Enrichment class Splat! Lab into your home for Splat Lab at home! We’ve modified our lessons to create engaging, fun, STEAM oriented play opportunities for our students using everyday household materials and requiring minimal adult involvement. We meet online and students will be led through a circuit of 3 activities by a seasoned Splat! Lab educator. That educator will communicate ahead of time precisely which household material you’ll need for the session and all classes end with an opportunity for students to show off their work to the group! Each class will feature a cool project such as making slime, unicorn poop, or marshmallow towers.
