Designed to encourage creativity and strengthen a child’s ability to put ideas into concrete forms through art, the two Creative Kids Club classes are fun, hands-on sessions for ages 3 to 13.
What will I learn in this class?
Little Artist is ideal for beginners and intermediate-level children. Working on fun, two- or three-dimensional art projects, children learn about colors and shapes, art materials like watercolors, acrylic paints, clay and origami paper and how to use such tools as brushes, scissors and glue.
Advanced Studio, meanwhile, is for those who love creating art freely. Students learn how to express themselves through the use of a wide variety of materials, including acrylic paints, clay, wood, stone, mosaic tiles and fabric. Besides working on projects, students are introduced to the works of a number of different great artists.
What are the benefits of this class?
Through the process of creating their own original artwork, students learn practical skills and techniques, gain confidence in their artistic abilities and improve their ability to concentrate. This allows children to appreciate beauty while creating from their imagination. Creating art enriches children’s lives and establishes lifelong memories.
