Children's Fall 2015 Weekly Sessions

My First Portfolio | Ages 2 - 3
Wednesdays, Oct 14 thru Nov 11 @ 10 - 11 am
Wednesdays, Nov 18 thru Dec 16 @ 10 - 11 am
A special emphasis will be placed on keepsake artwork, pieces that the child and the caregiver create together that you’ll want to hold on to for many years to come. Lessons will incorporate art themes, so caregivers find intellectual and creative value in this course. AAC instructor Michelle Williams teaches art to preschool and elementary-aged students and holds a MA in art history. No art experience is necessary for caregivers, just an open mind, ready to be engaged. Section I classes will not meet Nov 4. Section II classes will not meet Nov 25.

It's in the Details | Ages 4 - 6
Wednesdays, Oct 14 thru Dec 16 @ 4:30 - 6 pm
This course will encourage your little artist to look closely at everyday and not-so everyday objects. One day we may lay under a tree and look up into the branches, drawing what we see. Another day we might use magnifying glasses to zoom in on unique details of our subjects. In each class, we will use a variety of mediums like oil and chalk pastels, paint, and more while we focus in and develop our observational and artistic skills. Classes will not meet Nov 4 or 25.

Art Trekkers | Ages 7 - 10
Wednesdays, Oct 14 thru Dec 16 @ 4:30 - 6 pm
You don't have to board a plane to experience what artists around the globe are working on. Let AAC be your personal guide! We will examine and explore the works of contemporary artists all over the world, from right down the street to halfway around the world. After we learn about these artists, we will use their pieces as inspiration to create our own works of art, paying close attention to color, composition, and detail. Classes will not meet Nov 4 or 25.
