PROGRAMS FOR PRETEENS & TEENS

Art After School

Portfolio Prep

Our newest Art After School program, these Monday afternoon classes for 5th-8th grade artists are a chance for older students to experiment and explore while working towards a portfolio that can be used for specialized high school applications.

 

These student-driven classes balance open studio time with guided explorations in a variety of media, and are co-planned by students and a professional Teaching Artist in accordance with the class’ interests. Possible units of study include drawing from observation, painting with acrylic, relief printing, and sculpture using both traditional and found materials.

 

Semesters include visits from working artists, field trips to local arts organizations and cultural institutions, and an end-of-semester student-curated exhibition.

Mondays, 3:30 - 5:30pm

October 21, 2019 - February 10, 2020

ART CLUB

This brand new program is an opportunity for preteens and teens ages 11-14 to experiment and explore as they work on and refine a portfolio that can be used for specialized high school applications.

(Aspiring artists who are not working on a portfolio are also welcome and encouraged to attend!)

 

Student-driven classes balance open studio time and portfolio advising with guided explorations in a variety of media. Depending on students' interests, workshops
