The Children’s Workshops are Back and more!
Our Saturday Children’s Workshops will get started again, Saturday, February 11 for children 1st Grade through 4th Grade. The new time is 1 PM until 2:30 PM, and our instructors will be future art educators from IUP, and members of the National Art Education Association. There will be a new topic each week and topics will range from drawing and painting to sculpture, printmaking and more. We might even get in a clay project or two! The cost is $20 per session with a 10% discount for those who pre-register for 4 workshops or more in advance. The workshops will max out at 12 students.
The schedule for the spring is as follows:
February: 11, 18 and 25
March: 4, 18 and 25
April: 1, 8, 22, and 29
May: 6, 13, and 27
We are also going to offer Art Lessons Tuesday evenings for students in 5th Grade through 8th Grade, from 5 to 6:30, beginning Tuesday, February 21. The IUP students will also guide these sessions with the focus being drawing and painting skills. However, the student’s particular interest will also determine the direction the workshops go as they work to improve their art skills. The cost for the lessons is $20 per session with a 10% discount for those who pre-register for 4 sessions or more. Because we want to keep the teacher / student ratio down the number of students will be determined by the number of instructors available.
The schedule will be flexible and be determined by student needs and interests.
. . .and don't forget Eat Drink Create, the third Saturday of the month. This month, February 18, Hsiao Busch, our featured artists will lead all interested painters! Call the gallery for more information or to sign up.
