Class Description

Children will experiment with bringing different art materials together and letting their creativity rule. They will start by making their own sketchbook to record their discoveries. Each class has a new project that enables students to improve their skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, or working with clay while being encouraged to take creative risks without fear of getting things “wrong”.

All materials are provided.
