All materials are included in class fees
Confidence: Mistake or Masterpiece
During this class children will be encouraged with art to reach beyond their comfort zone and learn to be confident in their choices and mistakes. They will be guided in trying new art making techniques and use materials without fear of failure or the final outcome. Students will learn and be inspired by master artists who are known for making bold choices in their art.
Creative Thinking: Beyond the Canvas
Children will be challenged to explore and break boundaries as they create their own unique artwork using unconventional materials. They will learn and experiment with mixed media techniques, and discuss the advantages in creating art in “non traditional” ways. For inspiration, they will be introduced to artist Frank Stella, who’s work playfully dances the line between flat painting and 3-demensional sculpture.
Creative Thinking: Beyond the Canvas
Students will learn about the master of problem solving, Leonardo Da Vinci. As a man who’s curiosities spanned many disciplines, Da Vinci was able to solve problems by forming connections between seemingly dissimilar things. Children will enhance their problem solving skills while learning to embrace their natural curiosity and creativity as they tackle one of today’s biggest environmental issues, pollution.
Perseverance: Experimenting with Color
Artists are constantly experimenting with new techniques and materials. This sometimes takes a long time and many failures before something comes out the way they want. Children will get a peak of what it takes to be an artist by creating their own experiments using color, and attempting to create a new technique of their own.
Focus: A Point of Concentration
Children will practice concentration skills by utilizing the art technique known as pointillism. By using small dots of color, that they will place in distinct patterns to create a desired image, children will learn that important skills like focus and patience are needed to accomplish their goals.
Observation: Art in Nature
Children will be introduced to drawing techniques such as, perspective, form, value, and the importance of learning “how to see”. They will then put their new skills of observation to use while sketching outdoors in nature or “en plein air”. They will use the information gathered by their sight and portray it skillfully on paper.
Communication: Expressively Abstract
This class will introduce students to the abstract art movement. They will practice communicating abstract ideas and emotions visually without the constraint of objective reality; guiding them to open their mind and broaden their Imagination.
Cooperation– Artistic Partnership
Children will learn about famous art collaborations and the artists behind them. They will also take a peak into the Dada art movement, which is known for its “absurd” collaborations. Inspired by what they have learned they will practice teamwork while they work with their classmates to construct their own collaborative art piece.
Responsibility: Get Messy
Children will have a blast creating 3-D art with a ceramic artist. They will practice responsibility using tools and working with clay in the ceramics studio. They will learn that there are consequences when artists are not responsible with their materials and do not respect the rules of the classroom.
