|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 6, 2016

Woman works on an art project with a child.

Those smarty arty kids in grades K-2nd 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.

When registering, please only enter the number of youth who plan to attend the session. “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.

Public registration is open online. Members receive notice of advance registration. Consider joining today.

June 4: Not a Box

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.”

June 11: Make It or Break it

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.

June 18: Mask Yourself

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.

June 25: Press Ahead

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; it’s complicated!). Also, there’s a really cool big printing press.

July 9: Over-Under, Over-Under

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.

July 16: Brush Rush

Let’s spend some time painting. This fun session with watercolors will let you explore one of the most popular art media.

July 23: Take a Shot

Today we’ll be using materials we find in nature and special paper to expose our own photographs. We’ll play around with long-exposure light drawing too!

July 30: Cut-n-Paste

Collage is a great tool artists use to make images with symbols, textures, and interesting meanings.

August 6: Book Bound and Down

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.
