Children's Art Workshop

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

What if your child could have fun while learning about historical art movements, famous artists and the times in which they lived? Our children’s art workshop achieves that goal and more by blending education and creativity in a way that expands children’s worlds through art, develops their cognitive functioning, promotes peer interaction, and reinforces their self-esteem.

WEEKLY VARIETY

Each weekly Art Workshop focuses on a different historical art movement, features famous artists from that period and works on building your child’s authentic self. Art Movements such as the High Renaissance, Impressionism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and Pop Art will be presented by our teachers in a unique and very merry way. Stand out artists from each movement such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol and numerous others will be special guests at each workshop.

WORKSHOP GOALS

By engaging children through the use of puppets, performance, and visual aids, our teachers take your child on a journey through each art movement and artist’s life focusing on cultural and historical influences, work, and legacy. Each week children will explore and discover their artistic selves with the creation of two different art projects relating to the movement of that particular session; an individual project and a master canvas they will work on collectively. This workshop connects children to art and one another by reinforcing that they are little creators while at the same time stimulating their knowledge, appreciation, and love of art and art history.

At the end of each workshop series we host a reception for parents and members of the public. At this reception, we exhibit the master canvases created by the children during the workshop. An auction of their master canvases will be held with 25% of the proceeds donated to the non-profit location where their workshop is being hosted.
