LEARN ABOUT THE DIFFERENT YOUTH PROGRAMS WE OFFER
For ages 3.5- 5 years old (Children must already be in preschool and potty trained. This is a drop off class, but contact Keri if another arrangement is needed.) This weekly class teaches children about the basics of color theory, types of art and art mediums, storybook-themed art projects, and encourages the children to try different styles of artwork.
Elementary grades 2-5: Designed with elementary school art curriculum in mind, the students will learn: techniques on how to use the different art mediums: acrylic paints, watercolors, mixed media, printmaking, chalk pastel; art theory concepts such as the color wheel, dimension & depth, and use of light & shadow, famous artists and their works and art from different cultures, as they relate to our art projects.
For ages 2.5-4 years old- with a caregiver: Explore colors, patterns, textures and paint with your little ones. . . without the mess in your own house! Messy Hands is a weekly class where they can play with different art materials, and take pride in their own little works of art! Each class will include storytime, an art project, and ending song or video. Caregiver participation is required.
For ages 5-7 old (Kindergarten and 1st grade): This class encourages children to become more independent artists, building confidence in making their own marks. We will explore color theory, famous artists and their work as well as popular storybook characters, and a variety of art mediums.
ART FUNDAMENTALS FOR TEENS
GRADES 6+: This class will focus on a variety of art techniques and mediums. Students will help decide on the subject matter for their art projects each week, while I introduce them to various materials and techniques. Students will complete a project each week.
ART INDEPENDENT STUDY
GRADES 9-12: The goal for the independent study student is to complete 3 artworks in the 6 week session that are part of a theme for their portfolio, using 2D art materials and advise available at the studio. We can also look through the student's portfolio to select the strongest pieces for their portfolio (AP/ Scholastic Award/ Governor's School/college entrance).
