Artivities After School
We provide after school art activities for children in an open studio setting. Classes occur Wednesday through Friday from 3:30-5:30 pm. Parents are asked to register students prior to class, however students are able to drop in and pay at the door. Students are able to join in all the fun as they choose their daily activity and creative media. Pastels, color pencils, charcoal, graphite, watercolor and acrylic painting, clay sculpture and pottery wheels are some of the options children may choose for their creations.
Class Size and Structure
After school groups stay small (between 1 and 5 children). When groups are larger, sessions become more regimented, however students are always encouraged to develop their own ideas and strategies. The environment is kept creative, positive and encouraging. Parents may attend with their children and can even join in the fun of creating. Parents may also choose to leave their child for the duration of class.
Our philosophy is that the role of the instructor should be as a facilitator in the creative environment. We guide the development of artistic skills and ideas by offering activities that develop the students ideas as well as spacial reasoning and critical thinking skills.
