An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 23, 2022
Art History lessons designed to encourage an even deeper understanding and appreciation of artistic expression. We will teach and discuss different periods and styles, and create artwork and acrylic paintings around those time periods. In addition to in-studio lessons, the class will take trips to the museum and park for “en plein air” painting.
Creative Crafts: Create and craft different projects such as mosaics, tote bag design, clay sculpting, self-portraits, optical illusion drawings and more!
Painting and Drawing: Introduction to painting and drawing. We will enhance our student abilities in drawing and painting through experimentation in a variety of media and projects such as still life. Students will be encouraged to develop their own personal creative vision.
Pop Art! Students will learn about this fun and exciting period in art history. We will discuss artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Keith Haring, and more. Projects will be created around each artist’s individual style.
