Young Artists

5-8 years old

Sundays 12:30-2:30

This 2-hr class focuses on developing observational, technical, and fine motor skills. Students work with a variety of art mediums and craft materials while being encouraged to explore, experiment, and create. In this class we start with a project-based format: kids will be offered specific subjects and materials. This structure allows us to expose kids to techniques and subjects they may not have thought before. At the same time, we will be gently introducing new students to our method: idea--sketch--material/technique--execution.

Because our approach relies on a gradual accumulation of skills and habits leading up to a student’s independent thinking, planning, managing materials etc., this class is offered in monthly sessions only.

Our young students are allowed a longer break (approx 20min) in the middle of our 2-hr class. This is a time for a light snack and play. There is plenty to do on our wooded playground, which encourages movement and socialization.

Supply is included in our rates.

Monthly session $140

Drop-in - not available

*Except for shorter (3 weeks) November, December and April sessions $105

Art Foundations

Saturdays 9:30 - 11:30 AM

7*- 9 years old

This class is the next step for our “rising” 7-year-old Young Artists and a comfortable start for new students, ages 8-9.  We will focus on learning the fundamental elements of design and composition by mastering a variety of techniques and materials. Students are encouraged to make each project into their own unique creation  and will learn how to independently bring their own ideas to life. They will have more freedom with art supplies, selecting what they want to work with and they will gain more responsibility for taking care of art materials. One of our goals is to learn not to rush through the steps and understand the importance of details and quality over quantity. Most of our projects will take 2-4 weeks to complete. This class is offered in monthly sessions only.

Students will have a 15-20 min. snack/play break in the middle of this 2-hr class.

Studio Art I

Saturdays 12:30 - 2:30 PM

9* - 12 years old

Our learning process is largely based on developing student’s critical thinking and their ability to identify and correct mistakes. It's not as dramatic as one might think, but there ARE mistakes in art, and “hunting” them (with a teacher’s assistance) can be great fun as we learn more about technique. Our students also learn to support one another by giving their peers positive feedback and encouragement. This class is suitable for 10-12 year old children and experienced 9 year old Sirin students who can work independently. Students will work in small groups on individual projects and may choose the subject, genre and medium as it suits their area of interest. Emphasis is placed on creative exploration and producing quality art pieces.

This class is offered in monthly sessions (3-4 classes) and drop-in formats. 

Supply is included in our rates.

Monthly session $140 (4 classes)*

Studio Art II

This class is geared toward busy pre-teen and teenage students seeking in-depth art instruction and to develop their art skills. We welcome students pursuing different goals: those working on pieces for their portfolios and the teens who are looking for quality social time while enjoying one of their passions. Some students will focus on developing the necessary observational drawing skills required for auditions and portfolio presentations others might enjoy working on their area of interest or experimenting a new medium or technique. This class is also a good starting point for students who are interested in joining our Junior Portfolio or Portfolio Prep groups.
