Year Round Litte Masters Art Classes:
An experiential art class designed to allow children to engage in different techniques and processes while exploring their own abilities and aesthetic. Different processes that will be explored include painting, drawing, sculpture, collage and multimedia projects.
The studio art portion is coupled with an art historical component in which each week an influential artist or art movement will guide us through a variety of techniques to complete a unique and interesting project. This perspective is designed to expose children to the processes and materials utilized by some of the most famous artists throughout history and foster a healthy sense of art appreciation.
Art classes work to build children's creativity and self esteem, facilitate eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity, develop their concentration and enhance their understanding of color, shape and texture. For the older age group we will further observe and learn about the history, culture, and technical aspects of art. Elements of drawing will be introduced including line, shape, value, gesture, pattern, scale, perspective and composition. The projects will develop our awareness and appreciation of different forms of expression and creativity.
