art classes

Explorers Class (ages 4-6)

I am so excited to be starting art classes again and this is such a fun age to teach. My focus is to teach foundational art skills in a variety of media along with art history. Most importantly though, is to have fun with friends and develop a life-long love of art. Here are the details on our class:

Wednesdays 3:345-4:30pm

Classes are $40/month including supplies

Payment is due the first week of the month

We wear cover-ups, but please wear clothes that aren’t precious to avoid stain headaches.

 

For November, we will take our color study to the next level. We will create tints and shades and learn about complimentary colors and how to use color effectively together.

11/5: Color mixing review, introduction to tints and shades; Bottle paintings

11/12: Tints and shades continued, introduction to complimentary colors; citrus paintings

11/19: Complimentary colors and putting it all together: mixed media on tag board

11/26: Finish projects and Thanksgiving turkeys with color dipped tails

 

In October we will be studying color theory. We will use paint, pastel, and play dough to see how colors interact and learn to blend color.

10/8: Introduction to the color wheel

10/15: How to mix color, make and take: play dough
