Online Class Offerings for Early Fall 2020

6 weeks: September 22 – October 31

Side-By-Side (Children ages 2-3 years, with parent/caregiver) $150

Thursdays, 11 am – 12 pm, Sept 24 through Oct 29

Part toddler art class, part parent-education workshop, Side-By-Side supports children and their grown-ups in creating together. Children will explore with drawing, painting, and playdough to create visual expressions of their ideas. Teaching artists offer parents and caregivers insight into the benefit of process-oriented artmaking and how to best support their child’s creative development. 

Art Studio at Home (Children ages 4-5 years) $150

Tuesdays, 1-2 pm, Sept 22 through Oct 27  OR

Saturdays, 11 am – 12 pm, Sept 26  through Oct 31

Designed for older preschoolers and kindergarten students, Art Studio at Home provides children with process-oriented, open-ended art experiences. Revisiting familiar materials from week to week deepens learning by allowing children to make connections and master techniques. 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art activities will focus on problem-solving, critical thinking, and reflective dialogue between peers and our teaching artists.

Drawing & Painting from Observation & Imagination (Grades 1-5) $200

Tuesdays, 3-4:30 pm, Sept 22 through Oct 27

Connect your head, heart, and hands through drawing and painting! We’ll build and strengthen skills through the exploration of line, shape, and color. Through close examination of objects, we’ll learn how to see more deeply and capture what we observe on paper. We’ll also tap into our imaginations to draw and paint the things we wish to see in the world!

Architectural Sculpture (Grades 1-5) $200

Thursdays, 2:30 – 4 pm, Sept 24 through Oct 29

Kids are like beavers … they are natural-born builders! We’ll explore a range of traditional, recycled, and repurposed materials including foamcore, cardboard, paper, and found objects to construct 3-dimensional works of art that challenge the mind and super-charge the imagination.
