Class Location: Civic Square Building, 4th floor, Room CSB 407
Course Description, Fall semester: Send your child on an around-the-world artistic adventure! Art Making embraces all the senses as students begin to draw, paint, collage, and sculpt. Young artists explore color, shapes, gestures, and objects as they expand their imagination and begin to tell stories through imagery. Projects may include exploring other cultures, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs, Central American temple building, and Chinese dragon mask-making. This course occurs in two segments intended to be taken sequentially as children develop their visual repertoire.
Course Description, Spring semester: Explore drawing and painting through time and place. Develop projects rooted in observation, imagination, memory, and experience. This course will visit the visual arts of different cultures, such as African patterns, Tibetan mandalas, and Aboriginal dream painting, as well as the western traditions, such as still-life painting, Expressionism, Cubism, and Pop Art. All ART-haus classes encourage personal exploration with materials and process.
