Kids Semester Fall/Winter 2022

ArtXtravaganza - Wednesday

$340

with Priscilla Eichler

Calendar Current session started Aug 10, 2022 at 4:30 pm, runs for 17 weeks

Registration is also available by calling our office at 615-822-0789.

In this mixed media art class, children ages 5 – 9 will embark on techniques in drawing, painting, collage and sculpture. The process used to teach each project is a step-by-step method that will inspire and delight students into creative action and help them think outside the box! This process involves observing, following instructions, and creatinguntil the student is happy with the outcome.  We strive to expose students to the elements of art (line, space, color, balance, etc.), while letting them run a little wild with their own imagination.
