Throughout the school year, we work with local schools to develop and implement after-school enrichment programs. Through these programs, we hope to offer parents affordable options within their child’s home school that expose students to a variety of topics that they otherwise would not be able to engage in. One of these programs is our Young Artist program! Budget cuts have led to an increasing number of schools cutting their arts programs, eliminating a much needed outlet for our budding artists. Our Young Artists program strives to develop interest in the arts, as well as hone problem solving and critical thinking skills in our K-3 students, bridging the gap between enrichment and standards mastery.
This term we have partnered with Kristin DeAngelis of 107 Bowers Gallery and ArtSpace to bring you 8 weeks of learning fun! Scholars will learn about famous artists and work to recreate those works of art on their own! Here is what your Young Artist can look forward to:
Week 1: Kandinsky – color theory with pastels
Week 2: Damian Hirst – Spin Painting
Week 3: Giacometti – tinfoil people sculptures
Week 4: Monet & O’Keeffe – clay flowers
Week 5: Matisse – collage
Week 6: Clay hand
Week 7: Van Gogh – painting
Week 8: Jackson Pollock – Splatter Paint
