Drawing Day is a worldwide event established in 2008 to encourage everyone to "drop everything and draw" to show appreciation for art, artists and illustrators. Michaels craft specialists will show Kids Club participants sketching techniques in half-hour sessions that start at 10:00, 10:30 and 11 a.m. Each session is just $2 per child ages three and up.  

"Creativity comes in many forms, and on June 1 at Michaels, we want to help spread the joy of drawing," said Michaels Creative Expert Jo Pearson. "Children love to express their creativity with pencils, crayons and markers, and Drawing Day is all about sparking and sharing that passion."

Michaels Kids Club classes are held every Saturday at all U.S. and Canada stores from 10 to 11:30 a.m., and each week a different craft or skill is highlighted.

Michaels also offers cake decorating classes for kids and a variety of other crafting classes for adults to indulge their creative side, from scrapbooking, jewelry making and cake decorating to knitting, crocheting, painting and more. Customers can view available classes online at Michaels.com, or check with their local store for details and pricing.
