The Imaginary Zoo with Reanna Watson  Inspired by Dr. Suess toys of interchanging funny animal parts, let us create through various medias and materials our own unique invented 2-D and 3-D animals.  Projects will include drawings, paintings, collage and constructions.  Children will learn about drawing, use of color arrangements, and assemblage.    

Let’s Draw! With Mary Lou Nicolai  In this fun filled class, we will learn line and contour drawing and exercise to increase skills at “seeing” what to draw.  Children will be taught basic layout on paper, drawing skills, perspective, proportions and shading.  The class will work together to create a wall mural with skills learned and individual artwork.

Under the Sea with Mary Lou Nicolai  Children will explore the wonderful world of watercolor and create from the deep!  Kids will draw and paint underwater scenes and creatures from the deep!  Come join the fun and get creative. 

Multi-Media Art Extravaganza with Angie Gonzalez How many amazing projects can we do in a week?  Let’s start with Repousse masks created from heavy foil that we will embellish with yarn, beads and colorful markers to make them wild and festive.  We will jump into the sea for underwater painting to learn about wax, resist/batik to create beautiful scenes with crayons and tempera.  Last but least… little woven people, fun, fanciful creatures of your own design using yarn, buttons, beads, etc. 

Paper Mache Express with Angie Gonzalez  Sharks, Crabs, Jellies, Oh My!  Ever wanted a big bad shark or a beautiful fluorescent jelly to call your own?  Join us for an underwater adventure making anything sea worthy you desire.

Enhance Your Drawing Skills with Mary Lou Nicolia  We will start with basic drawing line and contour exercises and enhance our “seeing” what to draw skills.  We will then work on drawing from photos either brought from home or from clip art.  Students will be taught basic layout on paper, drawing skills, perspective, proportions and shading.  CLASS IS FULL. 


Acrylics with a SPLASH! with Reanna Watson We will start with a little drawing and then a value study.  Then we’ll add a SPLASH of color to create fun summer artwork.  Come join the fun and create bright, colorful paintings.  

Drawing with Color with Michele Traum  Do you love to draw?  Do you love color?  Express yourself with oil pastels!  Young artists blossom with creamy, smooth color that they can smear, blend, dot, over-lap and mix.  They can learn how to hold a stick to achieve different strokes – either as a pencil, clenched in a fist or on its side.  Creativity and interest are enhanced with materials that encourage exploration and expression.  Let the fun and creativity begin!
