ARTcetra 6th-12th

In this class the students will explore as many different art media as we can fit in the time allowed. I like to provide all kinds of supplies and techniques to create with and to encourage kids to be creative with what they have on hand. Drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, resist, pastels, etc. will be used. Students who enjoyed this class last year will want to come back and see what's new. We will be adding new techniques and projects to the schedule. All classes will culminate with an Art Show in the spring.

Please text me if you will miss a class (520) 904-3112. Letting me know is the only way to be excused and not lose points.

Welcome to ARTcetera! We started off with a lovely peacock drawing. After going over our lines with Sharpie, we will use watercolors to bring them to life!

I'll let you know the day and time as soon as I know.
