Artivities Studio and Gallery has a lot to offer for back to school! We are excited to unveil our after school program, home school classes and continuing art education for hobbyists and professional artists alike!
Back to School at Artivities
Our back to school program is designed for children 10 and up. Although we have a suggested age range, we take into consideration that younger children may accompany their older siblings. We work with families to design the best situation for after school. Our program runs from 3:00 pm-5:30 pm Monday- Friday, beginning September 5th. For more information please see Artivities After School, beneath the ‘for kids’ tab on our menu bar.
Home School Art Classes
Artivities classes for home school students begin September 5th, 2016 and run for 12 weeks. Sessions end the last week in November, leaving December open for family and travel. Students may sign up for one or two classes per week and will explore core concepts such as Science, Math, History and Communication Arts through the study of art and art making. To find more information, please see Home School Classes, beneath the ‘for kids’ tab on our menu bar.
In the Gallery
Don’t miss the very special performance of local musician Jin X, who will perform the music of Prince, live in our gallery. This one night only house concert will be a small concert with limited seating. This is a free event with a suggested donation of $10 at the door. Guests are invited to BYOB. For more information on this event, please see our online event calendar.
During the month of August, we feature Barbara A. Williams, a folk artist depicting family ties and Ozark studies through a series of etchings, collages and photographs. Williams is a local artist of West Plains, Missouri and an adjunct professor of art at Missouri State University-West Plains. We will feature this show from August 5th until August 30th. Williams will give an art talk in reference to her work on August 18th, 2016 from 6-8 pm. Please see our online calendar for more information.
Next month we will feature the eclectic work of local Springfield artist, Darlene Copeland Prater.
