Those smarty arty kids have plenty to do at JCSM on Saturday mornings! ArtyPants gives your child the opportunity to explore a wide range of materials, make new friends, and create their own art. Come join us each Saturday (except for July 4).
“Day of” standby participants may be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Plan to arrive at 10:15 to check with educators on session availability.
Three dimensions are better than two! Well, maybe not better, but different. We’ll explore space through sculpture this day, inspired by the children’s story “Not a Box.”
Artists set criteria for their own work. In this session, students will do the same, creating an original work of art using their own rules.
Collage is a great tool that artists use to make images with symbols, textures, and interesting meanings.
Drawing is an essential art skill, but there are so many drawing tools that students don’t always get a chance to play with. Unusual shaped crayons, pastels, erasers, brushes…we’ll play with them all!
Sewing and weaving can be done using a wide range of materials, for some really cool effects. Crafty ideas on Pinterest and Etsy might inspire you to create some cool fabric, yarn, and sewn objects.
Let’s spend some time painting. This fun session with watercolors will let you explore one of the most popular art media.
What are you hiding with a mask? What identity are you becoming? This session combines the best of fantasy, play, and artistic craftsmanship to create neat masks.
No need to move fast, we’re making art books. Books made using folded paper, cloth, and other materials can be really creative, and dynamic works of art that are more than just a single image.
Lithography is the process of using a stone (litho) to make an image (graphic.) For this project, we’ll use polyester instead of stone, but the basic idea is the same (we’ll explain more when you get here!) Also, there’s a really cool big printing press.
