The students will get to try their hand at a little bit of everything during our Fine Arts half day class.
We’ll learn about famous artists and use their work as inspiration for our projects. Students will get the chance to try out an array of art mediums and techniques. We will learn about different forms of printmaking relief, mono and screen printing. The children will be working with clay, both hand build and on the pottery wheel. We will then practice drawing techniques with still lives and figure drawing working on composition, layout, perspective, line, and shading.
We will even combine some of the art mediums to create unique mixed media projects. This is a great chance for your child to try out new art processes, while learning about the history of fine art.
This class is designed for students in K-4th grade, we tailor our art projects to fit the students age and abilities.
Student’s will be picked up at Success Academy at 12:30, we will then walk to the studio located at 592 Pacific st. The students will first have lunch which the parents will pack for them. Please pack a water bottle, we have a water cooler onsite they can use. We will then have a short explanation of the days projects followed by a demo.
They will work on the project for about an hour, and we will break for a short free time, where the students will be allowed to work on free draw, rainbow loom and other creative art based activities we have at the studio. The last hour of class we will finish working on our project. Pick up is at 3:30, with an option for the students to join our after-school which begins at 3:30 ending at 5:30.
A make up class will be provided the week after the last class of each session in case of a cancellation due to weather or other unexpected issues.
**We do not offer a make up class or refund if the student is not able to make it to class**
Parents will be notified VIA email in advance if a class must be canceled. We follow the NYC PS cancellations, in case of a snow day. However, we may still run after school depending on the weather.
All pick up will be canceled on a snow day, if we do decide to have class. We will email parents regarding our decision by 12 pm that day. We will only offer one make up class per semester any cancellations.
We understand that living in NYC there may be times when you are late picking up your child, due to traffic, subway delays etc. We try our best to accommodate city life. However we have to account for our teachers time as well. We allow 2 late pick ups during a semester with in a 15 min time frame. There will be a $15 late charge applied to late pick ups thereafter, unless prior arrangements are made with Rene.
