After School Art

Students and parents agree this unparalleled program is the perfect blend of creative fun and fine arts education!

Awaken your child’s imagination and creativity in our Young Vincents after school program! Your child will gain both confidence and an understanding of the visual arts while building painting, drawing and mixed-media skills. Weekly classes are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the school year. Sessions are challenging and exciting for ages 6-12, including teen classes.

 

Through guided, hands-on art projects, students develop an eye for color, composition and design. While mastering the fundamentals, they also learn lifelong habits regarding technique, material use and art appreciation. Throughout the year, we explore a variety of artistic realms, such as still life, animals, people, landscapes, and abstract concepts. Young Vincents take home an amazing portfolio of completed artwork which they are proud to sign, display, and share.

CREATING A SAFE SPACE

Our staff has worked diligently to implement protocols as recommended by the ADHS and CDC, and we are eager to serve our students with their health and safety as our first priority.

  • Masks required for all students
  • Reduced capacity
  • Temperature check at the door
  • All registrations/payments must be processed online
  • Sign in/sign out will be contactless and take place outside
  • Routine disinfecting of the studio during & after class
  • We will practice social distancing within the studio to the best of our ability

 

MAKE UP CLASSES

We will no longer be able to hold make up classes during regularly scheduled classes. A make up class will be set at the end of the session on a Friday afternoon. During this time we will help students to complete the projects they missed. Each week we will complete a new project, so if your child misses a class, they will not be behind when they return the following week. Parents must register online for this make up class on the calendar.
