Meadowedge Art

classes for children

We need you! Please help support Meadowedge Art

Ages 5-7 Mondays 4-5:30
Ages 8-10 Tuesdays 4-5:30pm

Younger children are provided painting, drawing, modeling, carving, collage, and printmaking tools with which they discover and build their art vocabulary . Often the excitement of using a new tool in itself  provides all the motivation a 6 year old needs . To build on that initial spark, storybooks, found objects,funny words, movement, games and shared experiences carry these young artists into hours of expression. At Meadowedge, each child’s unique style and excitement for creating are given preference over adherence to  to a specific outcome. 8-10 yr olds make the transition to more accurate objective drawing and  to advanced drawing tools

Ages 11-14
ADVANCED DRAWING AND PAINTING
Thursdays 4-5:30 (starts Jan 28)

These classes are planned around an older student’s interests and abilities. Not satisfied anymore with just exploring materials and symbolic representations, Young Teens olds want the skills to build a more detailed expressive language. Drawing what they see more accurately, mixing colors to show depth and form, creating sculptures with an understanding of proportion and balance, and learning ways to evaluate their own and appreciate other artists work.

There are 2  13 week sessions for each class, one starting September 19, the other starting Jan 23

NEW THIS YEAR!

 for 11-14 year olds Thursdays 4-5:30pm and starting Feb 2 , Sundays 2:30- 4
