Elementary Studio - Kindergarten - 3rd Grade    Tuesday 4:00-5:15

In our older classes the curriculum continues to expand and challenge each student while remaining committed to our goals and philosophies of art education. The curriculum still has experiences rooted in our core projects/experiences of the mixed media class, but new concepts are woven into the teaching and learning. Observation from life in both drawing and painting will be fostered, while not forgoing direct improvisatory painting practices from the imagination. Sculpture projects are more complex and involved with contemporary art practices. The Studio believes this curriculum will allow maturing children a creative and stimulating environment that nurtures their imagination and sense of self.
