FREE Hands-On After school Art Classes

For kids ages 6 – 12

All Classes: Tuesdays – Fridays, 3pm – 5pm

2013-2014  Schedule: September 3, 2013- June 6, 2014

 Each day students hand craft a different “make and take” project taught by a licensed Art educator.  We explore a variety of mediums and approaches such as painting, drawing, clay, printmaking, fiber arts, movement and more.  Students of all abilities are welcome and will walk away with newly gained knowledge of skill and technique. All students are provided a healthy snack at 3pm.  Classes are on a drop-in basis, which means if you can make it one day a week, once a month or everyday–our doors are open and we are always delighted to see you!

This year,  check out our upcoming lessons featuring the cultural holiday of  Dia de Los Muertos as well as our themed months such as “Jump into Arts January,” featuring art elements, principals, and basic terms; “Fabulous Females February,” featuring important and famous females of the art world; “Master Artists March,” “Arts around the world April,” and “Multi-Media May.”

Follow Along Friday, or (FAF), will feature step-by-step, follow along drawings of animals, landscapes, portraits, fantasy creatures and more! Students will learn to draw more realistically by breaking down subjects into basic lines and shapes.

“My favorite class is art class in the afternoon, after school.  I like it because we learn about things from other countries.”  -Genaviv, Hands-On program participant, age 11
