Each month I provide a two hour workshop exploring different concepts and themes in art. This is provided on a sliding scale of $1-5 per child to cover materials. The workshop is geared toward children who are 7 – 10 years old, but younger and older children are welcome.
I start the workshop by introducing the concept or theme that we’re dealing with. This may be with a story or by showing artwork that expresses the concept. Then the children are invited to create art in two or three activities on the theme.
The art projects are designed to be mainly process oriented, with children encouraged to express themselves without adult pressures.
