Artopia - Thursdays


with Dr. Priscilla Eichler

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 13, 2023 at 10:30 am, runs for 6 weeks

In this mixed media art class, children ages 5 – 9 will embark on techniques in drawing, painting, collage and sculpture.  This class encourages creativity in each student. Young artists will be encouraged to see the beauty in ever-changing nature, in objects around them, and in their own imaginations. 

Each month, each season unravels new opportunities for creation and imagination! For example, January is a chance to think about new beginnings! “In this new year, I will ___.  February is the month of love and we’ll look at who and what we love.  All of the thoughts of each month and holiday will be depicted through various media; colored pencil, acrylic paint, watercolor, sculpting in clay, montage, and collage.

The goal of instruction is for students to see the world around them with new eyes and to create what they see! Each young artist will be encouraged to be creative in the exploration of his/her skills, imaginings, and love of life!

Please note that we will not hold classes during Spring Break (March 13-17) as well as on April 7th.
