Let's explore the ways artists use art making and imagination to weave a richer, more colorful experience of life. This course invites young artists to tap into their own unique talents, skills, ways of seeing and creativity to create art that is personal, expressive and original. Media choices are abundant, with ample room for student exploration. Storybooks and masterworks are sources of inspiration. COLOR MY WORLD: Get ready to see the world in a whole new way! This course offers the child a variety of exciting art experiences based upon explorations of his/her immediate world. The child-artists are encouraged to explore the world through experiencing texture, color, line, and shape through use of movement, touch, and sight. Using a variety of drawing media, the child translates his/her world through expressive mark-making and line. From very small to very large drawings, individual work to collaborative murals, this course will open up a world of possibilities.

DRAWING WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN: In this fast-paced course, students create drawings from memory, observation, imagination, and in response to the art of master artists. Different approaches, tools, materials, and techniques are explored using a range of media, including pen, pencil, pastel, and paint. With each new medium and technique, students create studies and sketches as preparation for several refined pieces for the final exhibition. Emphasis is on exposure to a variety of traditional and non-traditional media and surfaces, with hands-on process, work, and experimentation at the heart of learning each new technique or medium. SCULPTURE WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN: From wire and wood sculpture to clay, plaster and carved forms, this course is for the student who thinks in three dimensions. Students combine a mixture of additive and subtractive techniques to create sculptures that may be large or small, smooth or rough, uniform or multi-colored, individual or collaborative. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Brancusi, Moore, Nevelson, and many more, students think about the way sculpture can convey a likeness, repeat forms, express a concept or emotion, and utilize space in visually interesting ways. Emphasis is on sculptures as artful three-dimensional objects that can be viewed from all sides, with a form and surface treatment that are cohesive and expressive of the students’ ideas and vision.
