YOUTH CLASSES

Afternoon Art Clubs

In our after-school art club, our focus is primarily to help children build a strong relationship between themselves and the studio space by establishing an art practice. Teachers routinely bring in new mediums and new techniques to share with students, however teachers also pay close attention to the artistic choices that a student makes, acknowledge their creative process, and speak to them about their art practice to both enrich and challenge their work.  These classes take place in our Painting/Drawing/Mixed Media studio at TAC, and will include a variety of mediums to explore.

This class is sometimes a little more boisterous than others, given that the kids have been at school all day. We strive to accommodate that energy by offering focused projects, collaborative projects, and free independent work time based on how the kids are wanting to use their creative energy.

Afternoon Art Club helps your child to develop many basic art skills while working with various mediums. Our classes are also designed to engage both your child's visual thinking and critical thinking skills, as they discover their own artistic process, become comfortable with making independent choices in the studio, build their skills to create increasingly complex works of art, and most of all have fun.

Afternoon Art Clubs are offered monthly.  You can sign-up for any month, no prior experience necessary!

Clay Clubs

In our after-school art club, our focus is primarily to help children build a strong relationship between themselves and the clay studio space by establishing an art practice. Teachers will demonstrate proper clay techniques and teach how to create clay that is useable and will fire without cracking or breaking.  However, clay is tricky, and teachers will give students the time and space to be creative and learn from their mistakes.  Teachers will accept the artistic choices that a student makes, acknowledge their creative process, and speak to them about their art practice to both enrich and challenge their work.  These classes take place in our Clay Studio at TAC and will include hand-building and wheel throwing.

This class is sometimes a little more boisterous than others, given that the kids have been at school all day. We strive to accommodate that energy by offering focused projects, collaborative projects, and free independent work time based on how the kids are wanting to use their creative energy.

In this class, we move together as a group through the studio. We begin by exploring a theme through drawing or collage, and then continue into painting to make large, colorful paintings and prints. Lastly, we spend some time working with clay or other 3-dimensional art materials such as plaster, paper-mache, wood, or recycled sculpture. In this way, every child has a chance to work with 2 and 3 dimensional materials each time they come to the studio. This is a fun and hands-on class, where they will get messy and learn artistic confidence.
