Arts After School: The Nature of ME!

Patterson Appleton Arts Center

Members $170; Public $180

Arts After School is an exploratory program for students ages 6-10 that investigates the history of art and provides a space for creative self-expression. This program not only offers art instruction, it nurtures life skills that foster constructive youth development. Through visual analysis, personal reflection, and interactive discussions, students will assess and interpret the ways in which they relate to the world and each other while gaining confidence in their decision making and public speaking capabilities. All supplies provided. Class size is limited; advanced registration required.

The Nature of ME! Do you know your family tree? This Fall, students will create drawings, paintings, found art sculptures, and a handmade book of their story. The images of Fall and nature and culture will be explored though Art History while students discover their own history and what makes them who they are.
