This spring's classes include:
• First and Second Grade: Children will learn about the basic properties of color and how the colors interact with each other through multimedia. The mediums the children will explore are painting, folding paper, weaving, tissue paper and printmaking.
• Third and Fourth Grade: Children will be shown a brief history of the Pop-Art Movement, and will be exposed to Andy Warhol and his most famous works. All of the projects allow children to further explore Pop-Art Movement, and creating artworks by experimenting with combinations of bright colors through the use of print making, collage and mixed-media techniques.
• Fifth Through Eighth Grades: Young artists will be creating their own "Coraline" doll through 3-D modeling by manipulating wire and clay, mimicking their own physical features with color and texture, creating interesting designs for printmaking, forming and stitching fabric templates and depicting an individual environment using perspective.
