Fall Home-school Art classes


The Fall Home-school art classes at the Art Junction began September 26.  Students explored a wide range of mediums, skills and techniques.


Students also explored the work of Wassily Kandinsky as they explored a study of circles and color using mixed media.


One of our older students explored expressive acrylic painting.


Students also explored landscape art while creating an image of the four seasons using mixed media.


Pumpkin painting was a great new method of using paint this autumn as students explored adding paint to a 3D surface.


Students explored mixing colors and the color wheel while creating a Mandala of color.


The classes were very hands-on and interactive as students explored many mediums, artists, and styles along with becoming a part of the creative process.


Fall classes ended on November 17 with students having a very wide-ranged experience.


Winter classes will begin Wednesday, January 23 and run for six sessions ending February 27.  If you are interested in participating in the winter session reserve your space today as space is limited.

Family Art Day


The Art Junction held its second Christmas Family Art day on December 1, 2012.


Everyone involved explored creating candy canes from Sculpey polymer clay.


Everyone enjoyed this hands-on activity.


After a little instruction everyone was anxious to build their own candy cane ornament.


Christmas ornaments are decorations (usually made of glass, metal, wood or ceramics) that are used to festoon a Christmas tree. Ornaments take many different forms, from a simple round ball to highly artistic designs.


Ornaments are almost always reused year after year rather than purchased annually, and family collections often contain a combination of commercially produced ornaments and decorations created by family members.


We had a great turnout of families, grandparents, grandchildren, friends and neighbors creating together.


Everyone enjoyed the process of creating together as a community.
