Art ANY Time ages 6-12
That’s awesome! Did you know that Jackson Pollack really wanted to be an artist but was not very good at drawing? So he created a different way to make art. Action painting or splatter painting is what it’s called. Kids LOVE learning this stuff! Understanding the lives (particularly the childhood) of artists is an important part of the appreciation of art and experimenting in art. Seeing how others used supplies and techniques is just inspiring! That’s why art history is a big part of our classes.
Class format begins with an artist or art history reference, story or slide show. Students brainstorm with me about how to use what we’ve just learned to create their own work of art. Sometimes a short demo is included. This takes no more than 10 minutes. Kids have the rest of the class time to create using clay, wood, wire, paper, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, or craft materials.
Our goal is to facilitate creativity and teach your child art history and techniques. In the process they have fun and create awesome things!
