Each playgroup will include a gently guided art process for you and your baby to participate in with the group.
After School Art Classes
Hand Building With Clay - Food Imposters (Ages 9 -11)
Tuesdays, September 7 - November 2 (no class October 12)
4 pm - 5:30 pm
Hand building is a way to work with clay without using the pottery wheel - instead we will use techniques with coils, slabs or pinching the clay. In this dynamic 8-week session, artists will make clay foods that are so real; you’ll almost be able to taste them! Students will get to create a variety of foods to sculpt and dream about during this food for thought class. We will use equipment like rolling pins and slab rollers to start the process, using more clay to embellish and decorate our work.
After School Mixed Media Class - Art of Diorama (Ages 7 -10)
Wednesdays, September 8 - November 3 (no class September 15)
4 pm - 5:30 pm
In this mixed media after school art class, we'll explore the art of diorama making! Miniature art may be small in size, but it often makes a big impression. Artists will start by designing and assembling a model dream room. We'll also paint, collage, cut, and sculpt to create tiny worlds inspired by artists like Joseph Cornell, Kara Walker, and Louise Nevelson.
Fantasy Drawing - Mythical Creatures (Ages 9 -11)
Thursdays, September 9 - November 4 (no class September 16)
4 pm - 5:30 pm
In this wonderful 8 week drawing class, children will be introduced to Mythical Creatures and How to Draw Them! Each week, students will learn about a new mythical creature as they draw them step-by-step with the instructor. We will then learn to color and shade our drawings using color pencils and watercolors.
Cost includes all materials.
In this 8 week art class, children will get creatively connected with nature. We will be using recycled materials along with objects found in nature like twigs, stones, leaves, pinecones etc. to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art. We will paint, sculpt, collage and decoupage as artists take inspiration from their natural surroundings.
