Art Class After School Program

After School Arts Program

This has been an unusual and surreal time as the Corona Virus has caused us, like so many others in the Arts to close up shop. We have continued to keep the program alive for our wonderful annex kids by delivering art projects and communicating on zoom chats. We are confident that we will be back! We miss you all and look forward to a better future.

To all our friends and families be safe and keep smiling!

What does the Corona Virus even look like? The above is a drawing is what one of our kids think it looks like under a microscope;

What are the kids missing the most?

Sara Freitas, Mixed Media Collage with Guitar on Canvas

      The after school program has been a lot of fun! We have worked on several projects beginning from basic drawing skills to still life renderings in several mediums from chalk to paint, sculpting and mobile building.

We have talked a lot about the artists responsibility to our environment. Re- purposed materials are a big component of our art making. The students are encouraged to find creative ways to re use materials while at the same time applying basic art concepts to the end product.

The program is structured so that nothing is lost by late enrollment.  The participants of the Monday – Thursday classes are given personal sketch books that they can use to collect their , thoughts, sketches, and reference ideas throughout the session.

After School Program!!!!

IMG_20150630_125801 Ben Pringle Age 6 Ben created his own personal gallery at home! He created beautiful art works in the Monday after school class. Art that was inspired by artists such as van Gogh, Cezanne, Klimt and Didier Triglia……above you can see how he has proudly displayed them. The young artists in the Monday program contributed so much to the class with their unique imagination and joyful spirit. image1                           image2                                                                     William Greer Age 8                         Julia Greer Age 6 Above are pencil and marker drawings by two of our  artists in the Monday after school class . William and Julia created these portraits based on ‘Art Nouveau’ artist Gustave Klimt’s ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer.  Students were encouraged to look at this and other art works by  Klimpt through a magnifying glass and explore all the intricate shapes and vibrant colours , most often encased in gold ,that he used in his paintings. The result of this project was stunning as each student created their own unique mosaic-like  drawing full of exciting movement of patterns and colour. The students have been learning the importance of balance and contrast in their compositions whether working in abstract or still life. These portraits are testament to how they have learned to apply simple rudiments while still exploring the depth of their imagination.
