After School Class Descriptions (Session 6)

Drawing Tuesdays: Zine/Mini Books

Mini Zines (zeen) are an exciting platform for kids to draw collections of their favorite things. Kids will learn how to fold and cut paper into little books, then fill the books with their art. Over the 5 week course we will make at least one book a week with different themes. Included is the how-to-draw series by Art Projects for Kids, Mrs. Barbro, for kids who are new to drawing.

Painting Wednesdays: Mini Canvases

This session we will “paint” on small 3×3″ canvases. We will explore scale and color while painting with different mediums. These small canvases allow kids to express their creativity on an exciting scale. With a mixture of topics of pop art to modern art, kids will create a small gallery of cute little paintings.

Mini canvases are a fun and challenging for all ages.

Makers Thursdays: Paper Projects

Pretty colorful papers open the imagination to make all kinds of critters and objects. Once a child learns the basic folding techniques they can stay busy for hours! This class is a fun challenge in 3-dimensional structures, spatial planning, and eye-hand coordination. We will make a mobile, boxes, origami critters, paper beads and welcome April with a rainbow!

Builders Fridays: Cardboard House

This progressive class will build and design a house over the 5 week session. Each week we will make additional parts of the house with the final take home on the last day of class. Each child will make their very own house and decorate it with their imagination and colorful supplies. This was a favorite class originated by Mrs. Barbro!
