Join teacher Cheryl Robinson for four full days of art making over February Vacation. Students will delve into a “World of Pure Imagination” as they look at art by the surrealists Chagall, Dali, Kahlo and Escher and explore their own ideas and dreams in large-scale drawings, paintings and collages. Our welcoming art studio, an atelier setting, is a vibrant space where students plan, design and create ambitious collaborative works. Texture, color, installation, space making, invention and immersion are the themes we will explore. Movement and storytelling are woven artfully into the class by our experienced, sensitive and inspiring artist/educator. This multi age level class will encourage students to stretch their imagination and discover tools and mediums for making a fantastical world come to life in their art. We hope to provide a rich, memorable and FUN experience for children and an opportunity for working families to explore our out of school time programs. All materials and snacks provided. Students bring their own lunch.
