PROJECTS DO NOT REPEAT FROM SESSION TO SESSION.

Sculpture Extravaganza (Ages 6 - 12)

Mondays, November 10 - December 8; 5 weeks 3:30pm - 5:00pm $115 (includes materials)

Children in this class will turn their ideas into 3-dimensional pieces of art! We will work with clay, wood, cardboard, paper mache, wire and more to create a variety of small and large sculptures. This is a great class for children who have big imaginations and a love for building! Come ready to get your hands messy! Smocks are provided.

Drawing and Painting (Ages 6 - 12)

Tuesdays, November 18 - December 16; 5 weeks 3:45pm - 5:15pm $105 (includes materials)

This class will help students develop their painting and drawing skills through weekly technique demonstrations, material experimentation and projects which focus on a variety of subject matter. In addition to exploring the ways in which value, line, color, perspective and design can enhance a work of art, we will also look to past and contemporary artists for inspiration. This will be a fun and relaxed introduction for students who feel less confident in their abilities as well as an opportunity for students with more experience to develop their skills.

Art Exploration (Ages 5 - 12)

Wednesdays, November 12 - December 17 (no class 11/26); 5 weeks 3:45pm - 5:15pm $105 (materials included)

This class is perfect for children who want to try a little bit of everything! Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of materials and techniques. Throughout the session we will experiment with painting, printmaking, drawing, fiber arts, sculpture, collage, and more! At the end of each class there will be "choice time": an opportunity for students to explore materials and subject matter of their choice.

Comic Art (Ages 12-15) with instructor Jace Smith

Tuesdays, November 4 - December 9 (no class 11/11) ; 5 weeks 6:30pm - 8pm $110 (materials included)

This course teaches the fundamentals of comic art and storytelling. We'll start with an emphasis on the history and the basic mechanics of the art form, then move to characterization and plot. Once we have laid this groundwork, we will develop personal ideas into a finished comic! This is a fun introduction to a popular genre of publishing and students are sure to leave with some beautiful work. Jace Smith is an Amherst based Art Educator, Illustrator, and published Comic Book artist. An alumna of both the School Of Visual Arts in New York City, and of the Massachusetts College Of Art And Design in Boston, Jace has shown work throughout the New England and New York area, and has done work for a wide variety of clients in different markets.

The Fundamentals Of Color Theory (Ages 18+)

Sunday, November 2 9am - 12pm $40 (includes materials)

This workshop is designed for those people who want to improve their understanding of color theory so as to better mix colors, create dynamic compositions and convey mood in their work. We will spend the 3 hours creating our own color wheels, value swatches and other mixing tests as well as exploring the impact of colors when they are placed together through a variety of painting and/or drawing exercises. This class will be a fun and useful introduction (or review) to color principles for the novice and experienced artist.
