CURRICULUM

AM Sessions: Students develop art skills through the foundation of drawing, watercolor painting and mixed media painting. Children build self- confidence while learning the art of contour, gesture, proportion and perspective.

 

PM Sessions: Children naturally connect to their spirit of exploration when scooping up acrylic paint with a brush! Their journey is exciting as they learn about color, design and composition. Invaluable techniques teach children to express emotion, atmosphere, texture and movement. Kids will explore their creativity and learn various hand building methods to create unique sculpture.

 

ALL DAY Sessions: Curriculum from AM and PM sessions

FAQS

Can my child participate in multiple sessions?

Yes, all new projects are introduced weekly. Multiple weeks provide an opportunity for skill building and creative development.

Does we need another art kit if we register for multiple sessions?

Extra art supplies may be purchased when registering for more than one virtual art camp session (no need to purchase a 2nd art kit). Each AM session will require an additional 5 sheets of watercolor paper. Each PM session will require additional canvas boards (8”x10” & 11”x14”) and clay. Paint from 1 art kit should last 2-3 sessions.

Can my 6-8 year old join the PM or ALL DAY sessions?

The projects planned for PM / ALL DAY sessions are challenging and the materials will stain. Therefore a younger student (6-8 y/o) may require continual supervision in the afternoon. Additionally, more focus is required on the afternoon projects and we don’t want our budding artist to get discouraged.

If you have the time and would like to help your 6-8 year old with these afternoon projects, feel free to sign them up and purchase the art kit containing all the needed supplies. Let us know in the notes section of your registration form if this is your plan. 

What if we miss a class during the virtual session?

If you experience technical issues during the live class or are unable to attend, a recording of the class will be available for 2 days following the session and must be requested by email. All virtual class registrations are non-refundable or transferable.
