Water Street Studios School of Art

After School Art: Exploring History through Art - Workshop Series for for Children(Ages 4 - 11) (South Classroom)

with Carly Palmer

$120

Come join School of Art Instructor Carly Palmer for a unique four (4) part workshop series for children that pairs art marking & history.

In each 2 hour workshop, children will be invited to explore their own unique imaginations and curiosity through process art. Process Art is art that is child-directed, choice-driven, and celebrates the experience of discovery. In process art, the final product is always unique and the focus lies in the creation of the work, not the outcome. This workshop is geared towards 3rd-5th Grade aged children.

Each class session we will be creating different art projects inspired by history. At the beginning of the class, the students will be shown a short presentation to introduce them to history, theme, and the art project. Please note that a specific theme & project list will be shared closer to the start of class. 

Week 1: Cave Art Around The World

Week 2: Native American Art

Week 3:  Egyptian Art

Week 4:  Medieval Art

*Special Note: Process art is developmentally appropriate for children because it meets them where they are as sensory explorers. Children will be using their hands, glue sticks, safety scissors, air dry clay, and washi tape to put together their projects. All materials will be provided and students will be able to choose & experiment with a variety of materials. The workshop is adaptable to each child’s individual needs.

All Materials included($15.00 art supplies included)
