After School Class Descriptions

Drawing

In Drawing class we work on the 7 elements of art: line, shape, color, value, texture, form and space. We introduce these concepts with fun topics and projects relevant to kids. We do step-by-step drawing for beginners and encourage advanced little artists to expand their art with more detail and expression. We use different mediums such as markers, chalk, oil pastels, and crayons. We encourage artists to grow and try new ideas.

Painting

We explore different painting mediums: watercolor, acrylic, tempera, and anything that can be spread with a brush! We love to introduce little artists to influential artists and use their works as inspiration to creating relevant art for kids.

Makers

Makers classes are probably known for parents as “craft” classes. We make all kinds of projects, from bird houses to bracelets. Makers learn tool safety, project planning and three dimensional strategizing, and how to make the best out of a mistake!

We also incorporate the classic crafts: finger knitting, macrame, jewelry, mobiles, paper crafts, hand sewing and more!

Sculpture

Kids LOVE Model Magic. A fabulous medium that allows kids to make anything they can imagine because it is soft and easily malleable. We teach basic skills with sculpture tools such as kneading, rolling and color mixing. Model Magic comes in bright primary colors, and we take advantage of the wonderful way it blends into new colors. Artists learn color, three dimensional skills, and develop dexterity.
