Children's Art Classes
September - May
The professional artists teaching at The Center focus on providing individualized attention to each student in a nurturing environment. Group instruction is noted for the small class size that enables each student to develop his or her unique talents. Students may join our classes at any time, space permitting. Video Art Lessons, and Zoom Room classes are great for individual families, home school students, and learning pods!
Due to the restrictions on our community at the current time - all art classes are being offered via online video lessons, or as interactive live zoom room classes. Art demonstration videos are sent to students each week that they can view through a Dropbox link on a laptop, phone, or tablet, whenever they like. Using materials they have at home students have created beautiful work this year including magnolia blossoms, red pandas, kittens in trees, robins in a nest with eggs, cherry blossoms at the Washington Monument and more. Families send cell phone photos of the finished art for feedback and to put on our virtual bulletin board. These fun video lessons can be done at anytime during the week, and are designed for children to create independently.
Interactive class students meet in our zoom room where the teacher guides them in each art project, and they enjoy virtual visits with their friends while they have fun creating! As always, Center classes are tailored to the development of each individual student in a nurturing, non-competitive class. During this time of social isolation, live zoom room classes allow students to interact with each other while providing a creative place for self-expression that builds confidence and makes kids feel good. Students can enroll on a pro-rated basis at any time if there is room in the class. Virtual zoom classes have a small student/teacher ratio as they do when we are on-campus.
