Study Groups


Fall 2021

Ages 4-7

Storytime (1:30-2:15)

Join us as we read some fun stories!  Each week will also have a craft or a snack to prepare based on our story. You can craft or “cook” along live with with the class, or just watch and make the craft or snack later.

Ages 5-8

Fantasy Creatures (10:30-11:15)

Let’s explore the world of fantasy creatures in clay, puppetry, collage and painting. From fiery dragons and phoenix birds to flying unicorns, what creatures will inspire your artwork? Each week we will hear stories from different cultures and legends and make a wonderful collection of imaginative characters.

Ages 8+

Dungeons and Dragons (10:30-11:15, 11:30-12:15, 12:30-1:15)

Do you like to pretend you are a humanoid cat with a penchant for yodeling and fighting monsters?  Maybe you are a forest gnome hungering to save the world.  Whoever and with whomever, you will encounter adventure, humor and friendship in the world of D&D.

Ages 9+

The Art of Trees (11:30-12:15)

Trees stretch their branches through many drawings and paintings and inspire artists from tiny saplings to ancient oaks. Let’s explore their symbolism, textures and changes throughout the seasons in our art together. We will illustrate magical forests, sculpt twisting wire roots and reach out and touch the sky with their painted foliage.

Watercolor Painting (1:30-2:15)

Let’s explore the art of watercolors, one of the most playful, transparent and expressive forms of painting. We will learn about warm and cool colors, experiment with wet and dry effects, add salt and other materials for textures, use masking fluid to save our lights and toned washes to deepen our darks. With all these skills, your paintings will transform your ideas into light filled creations.

Art Journaling (2:30-3:15)

The beauty of an art journal is that anything goes. It’s a place to express your interests and feelings through images, writing, and just playful mark making. It’s similar to a written journal, except that it incorporates colors, images, patterns, and lots of fun mixed media materials. We will explore various aspects of your life, starting with doodles, thoughts and scribbles and then layer over them as we explore the use of stamps, paint markers, gel pens, gesso, and collage. Students can work privately or share their pages with others.
