Art Classes for Kids in Tri-Cities, WA
Corbie Arts classes run in five week sessions. Each class meets once a week for one hour. The 6th grade and up class is an hour and a half. The projects done in class will focus on particular skills and elements of art. Most projects begin with drawing – directed drawing, drawing from life, or drawing from imagination. A variety of materials and techniques are used in each session: tempera, watercolor, collage, oil pastel, chalk pastel, printmaking, etc… Each session will also include a variety of subject matter, landscapes, figures, animals, architecture, etc…Many projects also incorporate learning across other subjects such as history, literature, geography, and science. While each class is focused on a particular project, I encourage students to express themselves creatively, within the parameters of the project. Everyone’s finished project is unique.
I truly believe there are no mistakes in art. I tell my students we call mistakes “happy accidents.” While I encourage students to do their best, my priority is to instill confidence. If they feel confident about their abilities, they will continue to enjoy art, keep trying, and their skills will improve.
