Program for Grades K-8

This summer, we will be making art from stories and telling stories about art.

Children will enjoy experimenting with a wide variety of materials, creating sculptures, drawings, paintings, and other artwork as they explore the relationship between pictures and words, images and stories.

Each week will bring a new set of ideas to spark imaginations as children are immersed in learning important skills and concepts related to the wonderful world of art.

Students in Grades K-5 will be inspired by clever weekly themes, such as “It’s a Mystery” and “Intergalactic,” learning about color, value, shape, texture and line- the foundations of art-and will go home with a portfolio of amazing artwork.

Students in Grades 6-8 will enjoy classes designed around specific artistic materials and methods, developing skills and concepts- and will also go home with an impressive portfolio.
