Anyone Can Art (ages 10-14+) Tuesdays 12:15-1:30Pm

The next 9 weeks will be filled with projects showing us that everyone has creativity. We will be drawing inspiration from nature, household items, and our classmates to show that anything and anyone can be art. We will be learning about the color wheel and how to blend colors as well as contrasting colors. We will learn that art doesn’t have to be perfect and will learn about different artists, past and present, using them for inspiration. Jackson Pollock might make an appearance, so sending an oversized t-shirt wouldn’t be a bad idea! Everyone can art!

Music (ages 5-14+) Thursday 8:30-9:45am

In Muses for Music, students will learn the fundamentals of rhythm, melody, music appreciation, and how to find that own inner spring of creativity.
