Little in stature, but immense in imagination!
In Academy Art for Littles, we will encourage students to understand fundamental principles of art through different media.
We will start in 2D (drawing and painting) and work our way to create three-dimensional art. Your child will be given a demonstration at the start of each class with a set of materials, then allowed to follow or diverge from that lesson with the materials provided. As they start their creative process, we will ask questions about their creations to help them think critically about their work. We want them to think about the materials they are using and encourage them to make some conscious decisions (without hindering their creative flow). Skill building is our secondary goal. We want our children to be able to cut, paste, and feel confident with their hands as well as with their minds!
What will we make?
We will draw from real life and our imaginations, then put color to our tableau with watercolors. Collages will be created with cut paper, paint and found objects. With clay, we will make pinch pots and use different tools to shape our form and create texture. With construction paper, we will draw and cut out shapes for a felt animal that we will sew by hand later in our session.
Students will be provided with an art journal to keep their work within the Academy (it will go home with them at the end of the session).
Supplies: All art supplies will be provided.
Parents, once you register for a Youth Class, we will email you a form to complete with additional information about your child. Please keep an eye out for this email 1-3 days after registering.
*Youth classes have been designed by age to be as pedagogically appropriate as possible, but the Academy recognizes that there are special situation where students are advanced for their age. Please inquire with the front office if you would like your child to be placed into a class that is not within their age range. Thank you.
