Over and over, research shows that kids who receive art lessons while they are young become more imaginative and creative adults. As you may know, creativity is an essential part of intelligence, and is often used as a gauge for measuring IQ.
You can't force a child to develop artistically but you can encourage their natural interests by gently guiding them to the next level and allowing them to take the next step.
Art Explorations- this signature class of Artworks Studio stresses the process not the product helping to develop improved skills in art. Students delve into fun projects in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media and metals (no cotton balls or Popsicle sticks here!) Lessons are aimed to help students develop and improve skills in art with fun introductions to line, shading, color theory, sculpture, painting and material handling for all new and repeating students. Every year is a little different with the same goal in mind: for students to have fun with art while learning the basics through many medias.
Classes are kept small so students can explore each project in depth and work at their own pace. Students are grouped according to grade currently in. Classes are offered in one hour sessions once a week and they follow the school calendar. Classes begin in September.
In the spring students will have a group art show open to family, friends and the general public. The students will help plan, display and promote their show. This is all part of the process of being an artist.
