After School Art Classes

If your child loves art then they will LOVE these after school art classes! Each art class is 90 minutes long. This allows time for students to look at and discuss artworks and also work to develop their masterpiece. During the classes that will be held this year, students will also make connections to other educational content in the areas of history, world geography, math, and natural sciences. Cultural celebrations and traditions, symbolism, and identity are just a few of the many enduring ideas that will be threaded through the various art projects in these classes. All materials/ supplies are included in the class fee.

The winter session is all about love and bears! Mrs. Marushok will once again be leading this after school art class. Students will be exploring a variety of artistic mediums and discussing elements & principals of design (line, shape, color, space, pattern, and overlapping).

With Valentine's Day just around the corner and hearts being everywhere, students will create a pop art heart inspired by the American Artist, Jim Dine, using acrylic and watercolor paint. The second project will incorporate children's literature, "Bear Snores On" by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman. Students will create a painting of a winter brown bear wearing a patterned scarf. The final project of this session will teach students fun facts about polar bears. Students will then learn to learn how overlapping and shading can make a polar bear painting look more three dimensional.
