Wednesday, January 13 2021 @ 12:00PM - Wednesday, March 24 2021 @ 1:00PM EST| $125.00
“Every Child is an Artist” ~ Pablo Picasso.
Each class will be inspired by a fun children’s book. We will start all classes by reading a story. We will then move on to create a masterpiece that will have a similar theme to our story. Students will learn new art techniques as well as a few famous artists. Each week, the students will complete a different art project using paper, scissors, crayons, markers, paint and other household items. Students will be encouraged to explore different textures, colors, and shapes. At the end of each class, we will share our masterpieces.
Please note this class meets for 45 – 50 minutes.
