Expressive painting class begins today! We look forward to a great class and some wonderful time exploring art!
Students in our autumn afternoon art classes explored a variety of methods of making art.
Students learned about balloon painting, the process of using a balloon as a paint brush to begin an image.
Students also explored collage as a method of making an image.
We also developed new skills in drawing.
We explored building sculptural shapes using newspaper as a building tool.
Students pushed their skills into new directions.
The class gave the students a wide exposure to many varied art terms, artists and mediums. We will be resuming our afternoon classes in mid-January. If you have a child who is interested, classes will be on Wednesday afternoons for six sessions. There will be two classes: one for ages 6-11 and the other class for age 12 and up. Check back in early January for more information.
Winter Home school art classes were a lot of fun for everyone involved. Students were exposed to various types of art mediums, ideas and projects over the six winter sessions.
We had two classes: one for kindergarten through fifth grades and another from sixth grade through high school.
Students enjoyed exploring various mixed media projects that used many new art ideas and techniques.
Developing motor skills and visual perception is an important factor in elementary art as students master using scissors and glue.
Concentration and eye and hand coordination are also vital in the developmental process for many art projects.
Older students explored collage and design as they pushed their creative ideas into new directions.
New materials and mediums and new possibilities push students into new opportunities with the creative process.
A big part of our classes is to introduce many new creative possibilities to students to explore and discover on their creative journeys.
Creativity is God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God. -Julia Cameron
