KIDS CLASSES

ASPIRING YOUNG ARTISTS

4 Year Pre-K/Kindergarten

For our youngest artists, this class gives students the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of art activities. Throughout the year, students experiment with a broad range of art materials: drawing, painting, clay, fibers, printmaking, collage, and more. Through these activities, students are introduced to beginning art concepts, instructed on ways to use artist’s tools, and given direction to develop art skills in creative ways.

 

Each week a discussion and demonstration is given prior to the class activity. Each student is encouraged to interpret the hands-on activities in an individual way with plenty of guidance when needed. 

 

Time is made for guided drawing or free-choice drawing. Students are asked to bring a sketchbook to class each week. All other supplies are provided. 

 

Aspiring Young Artists may be repeated as the activities always change.

AFTER SCHOOL ART

Grades: K-3, 1-4, 3-5

Drawing, painting, clay, printmaking, and more! Students have the opportunity to engage in a variety of new art experiences while having fun along the way!

 

Motivating class discussions and demonstrations start the classes off with idea gathering. Students are encouraged to make choices and interpret the hands-on experiences individually with guidance as needed. Skills, techniques, and concepts are incorporated into the lessons and increase in difficulty with the grade level.   

 

Time is allotted for observational drawing. Students are asked to bring a sketchbook to class each week. All other supplies are provided.

After School Art may be repeated as the activities always change.
