Once Upon A Picture- Story time followed by Art

Once Upon a Picture Story Time

Each week Once Upon a Picture begins with a favorite picture book story. For some little artists it is the art that captures their attention, and for others, the words. Through the story they are inspired to express their interpretation through exploring a new media and technique. Some will spend the entire time perfecting their masterpiece while others love exploring the process. All approaches to art are welcome and creativity is encouraged. But most importantly, participants are engaged in this early introduction to art class.

Session II: April 9, 16, 23, 30

Art is Elementary!

Art is Elementary – Drawing class for elementary age students

Art is Elementary is a fun, multi-leveled art class. Because drawing is the foundation for all visual art mediums, each class begins with a sketching exercise to help develop an “artist’s eye.” The young artists are then introduced to a new technique through a different media and given time to develop a finished piece or experiment with the technique or media. The flexibility of this class allows for self-expression and an opportunity to collaborate with other young creatives. Lesson plans are approved by Art is Elementary founder and teaching artist, Annette Bernardi.
