Ages 6-12 with Chelsea Erin Vaughan
Our innovative art lessons combine step-by-step instruction with open-ended play to encourage creative thinking and loads of fun. We focus on problem solving and exploring materials in unexpected ways, but most of all, we make cool stuff!
This semester, our goals are to foster an environment open to the creative process as a whole with a strong emphasis on sketchbook experimentation and exploring varying techniques and mediums, also we'll be focusing on the elements of composition--how artists arrange the elements of an image to attract and engage the viewer. We'll experiment with line quality and shading, mix color and create color schemes, and learn how to draw scenes using one- and two- point perspective. In the second half of the semester, we'll explore compositional balance, contour drawing and more.
Looking at examples from traditional art, comics, cinematography, and graphic design, we'll discuss how professional artists make decisions about each of these elements and how we can make smart decisions in our own work.
We will use pencils, markers, charcoal, oil pastel, liquid watercolor, sharpie, acetate, tissue paper, and more to make messy fun in in two dimensions.
Arts & Crafts Class with Ms. Yejin Bae
What better way is there to start off the weekend with hands-on creativity along with fellow artist-friends! Our arts & crafts classes every Saturday encourage children to explore various materials and apply unique methods for creating art projects ranging from environmental art, recycle art, pattern designs, weaving, collages, and many more!
Saturdays 10-11 am (Ten sessions x $20)
Creative Lego Workshop
- Creative Lego Workshop Wednesdays at Woodside 4:30-5:30pm(10 sessions x $30)
By popular demand our LEGO Workshop returns as semester-long classes! The class will cover engineering basics, while focusing on the creative and artistic side of Lego building. So on top of learning how to build strong and functional structures and how to speak Lego-talk (“1x4”, “holy beams”, etc.), kids will also be introduced to concepts like complimentary colors, layers of detail, and imagining projects in both large and small scales. Mr. Jeff has dreamed up fun projects in themes that include 'Impossible' Bridges, Three Eras of NASA Spaceships, Open-walled Interiors (house, restaurant, etc.), and more.
Kids Musical with ms Gabrielle
- Wednesdays at Sunnyside 4:30-5:30 ($30 x10 sessions) at Woodside
Write your own musical!
In this class we will explore writing our own songs!
Introduction to singing techniques and gaining confidence in our voices will be our first focus.
We will also learn an introduction to scales, chords and intervals in preparation for writing our own songs.
Together we will come up with themes for songwriting, and work on lyric writing and song-craft. The semester will culminate in a performance open to the public where we bring these songs to life in the first act of our very own musical.
