Kids After School Mixed Media Art Class
We had fun in our Wednesday after school Mixed Media Class this afternoon. We’re painting Mardi Gras masks – they’re drying now and we’ll finish them up with some bling and other fun details next week. The kids did their own mask sketches and then learned about painting with palette knives for the background to give it what we called a “messy” random background. They all had fun personalizing their masks with swirls and feathers. We emphasized how fun it is to make each painting unique.
The class is open to kids ages 6-10 and while we’ve welcomed many new students this month from St. Mary’s and Council Traditional School – we still have a few spots still available so call 251-343-2423 to register. Tuition is $50 per month. For those who have Girl Scouts every other Wednesday, we pro-rate the tuition to accommodate your schedule.
Technique Thursday Evening Class Forming
Parents and older siblings (ages 11+) that are interested in Mixed Media Art – we’re trying to form a Thursday evening class from 5:30-6:30pm for learning about different paint techniques like adding texture to the canvas before painting or using heavy body paints. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the list. We’ll let you know when we have enough to start that class.
Class fees will be $50 per month or $15 per session for drop-in. We will be working with smaller canvases and other painting surfaces in order to try some fun experimental techniques and some painting mediums that you may have heard about but aren’t sure how to get started painting with. So if you’re looking for a fun class where we’re always trying something new, give our Technique Thursday class a try to get a sneak peek at how some of those art mediums are used.
