Description

Round and round your child goes, full of energy to devote to mischief (or to creative expression). This course provides that second choice, as they're introduced to foundation art forms like drawing, painting and sculpture in projects inspired by a familiar theme: the carousel. Young artists imagine the merry-go-round and the fantastic menagerie that make up the carnival attraction as they interpret those animals as characters in pencil, paint and clay. The final project is a showcase for all of their new skills as they create a vibrant sculptural animal in polymer clay and bring it home to share with family.

Description

Dinosaurs: gone but not forgotten, particularly in the imagination of young artists who often focus on these extinct creatures as their first creative obsession. This course will give students the opportunity to expand upon their existing knowledge of the T. rex, pterodactyls, marine reptiles and ceratopsians. Scientific facts and educated guesses provide the inspiration for projects in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture as students build and craft art objects that are all definitely "dinosaurish."

Description

Play and expression come together in this course that introduces children to basic art making techniques and art vocabulary. Inspired by a theme, students are encouraged to come up with creative solutions that can begin as drawings, become vibrant paintings and then three-dimensional constructions. Lessons in process are demonstrated and reflected upon as students consider a creative method that is thoughtfully discussed and becomes part of a creative arc that extends beyond the last class, as they continue "Artin' Around."

Description

Here's a chance for children to design and create pots, cups or boxes to contain a favorite snack or keepsake, or perhaps form and decorate clay tiles or sculptures that tell a story. In this course, students will continue to develop clay building skills and explore the fundamentals of sculptural and functional ceramic art. They'll also pose a few new questions: Can a sculpture have a useful function, or can a ceramic mug or bowl be a sculpture? As they refine skills in using the pinch, slab and coil methods of clay construction, students will dig deeper into the function of their clay works and finish their pieces with surface decorations, embellishments and glazes.
