Art Foundations for Ages 8-11
Through creative exploration and a variety of artistic mediums, your children will learn about artistic elements and principles, art history, and the relevance of art in the world today. Through participating in both independent and collaborative activities, students will have the opportunity to experience art as an expressive tool while also understanding its value to both them and their community. On the last class day, students will present a special art showcase for family and friends. Different themes and concepts are explored each semester, allowing for students to participate multiple times. (All art supplies will be provided during class.)
