After School Art Club for Kids
The Creative Kids After School Art Club is a four week after school art program for kids 6-12 years old. The Club encourages creativity, elevates confidence, and enhances artistic learning. Kids will also make new friends and have fun while learning new creative skills.
October Kids Club - October 4-25 - Drawing Skills
In this after school session, we will focus on drawing. Kids will learn some of the fundamentals of drawing and have fun using drawing tools like charcoal pencils to add depth and dimension to their artwork. The After School Creative Art Club has sessions on Wednesdays. Sessions begin at 4pm and run until 5:15pm. All of our Creative Kids will receive a sketch book and pencils for their session. They will also get a Creative Kids’ Art Club T-shirt at the end of the program!
Drawing is one of the most important activities that budding artists can do. Drawing not only provides the basis for other creative activities – like painting, sculpture and printmaking – but it also provides a direct link with reading, writing and especially mathematics. The connection between drawing and geometric shapes and measurements simply cannot be denied. And do you know what else? Drawing is the single most accessible form of art available. All you need to start with is a pencil and a sheet of paper.
