This Art Club is a place for fun and friendship. All welcome. What will the club be like? The first week we will personalize our art totes with a buffet of art supplies. Another week we will walk around the fall leaves collecting pretty things and make a collage. We are going to learn about influential artists and how they impacted our world. And then we will practice their style of artwork while enjoying a taste of their world and culture. We will listen to music and create reactive art. We will pick a flower and talk about perspective, lighting, and color theory. Some weeks we will practice learning our new art medium. Some weeks we will craft. We are going to have so much fun!
We live in a world of constant stimulation and screens. Let’s detach and make art happen! The Canary Art Club will give you or your child a designated weekly hour of awesome interactive explorative creative inspiration. Each class will introduce mediums, art education with you or your child leaving with optional projects for home. This is perfect exposure or for budding artists to get a taste of different mediums and styles.
The Canary Art Club is suitable for ages 6+ age old. The syllabus has been adapted for this age with optional modified projects according to level and maturity. Your child, if applying, should be able to sit still for a period of time, listen to directions, and have fun!
