WEEKLY ART GROUPS

 

There are 4 sessions in our

"Weekly School Year Art Groups":

Fall, Winter, Winter II & Spring/Summer.

 

Session lengths depend on the season & holiday schedule. 
 

Sessions conclude with a portfolio review where each artist selects one work of art to be featured at the end of the year art show. Artists will pick one work of art from EACH SESSION he or she attends.

 

9-week Spring Session: April 6-June 7

Studio Closed Monday: May 31st

 

 

 

FAQ

 

Weekly art groups meet once a week for one hour.

This year we are adding 15 minutes between groups to sanitize the area.

 

Groups are NOT separated based on talent or skill level. 

They are strictly separated by grade level to allow for appropriate socialization. We will accommodate skill levels in each group by provided adaptations & extensions when needed. 

 

New this year! Private POD groups. A POD group allows your artist to create & connect at ease in the company of your own friends & family. We have designated time slots available to reserve. PODs must have a minimum of 6 children and maximim of 9-12 (depending on sibling breakdown). 

 

There are no make-ups offered for weekly art groups. Please see the below policy for missed weeks.

 

 

 

New COVID Procedures

 

No parents will be allowed in the studio space unless enrolled in a lesson. We ask that you please wear a mask when dropping off & signing in at door.

If a parent does need to enter for an emergency, he/she must wear a mask. 

 

Artists need to wear a mask when entering/exiting the studio.

We will encourage your child to wear a mask while in the studio, however, he/she can take a break when/if needed.  We will remain over 6ft apart (siblings may share a space) & socially distanced at all times at private tables with private supply bins.


Art instructors will wear a mask at all times. All instructors & artists will sanitize hands upon arrival & departure of the studio. We will wash hands and sanitize frequently during extended workshops.

Supply Sharing/ Personal Supplies 

 

There are some art materials/tools that are too difficult to sanitize between groups & are not feasible to purchase for every artist in each group.

 

There will be a few supplies we ask you to provide for your artist that we can no longer "share safely" in the studio this year due to Covid. We will provide a personal plastic container for your artist to store his/her materials and to keep in-studio for the session. We will be providing all other materials/supplies we can sanitize and/or don't share between groups/artists to keep in their personal bins as well for the session. You can bring items you already have!

 

We ask you to bring the following items:

 

1. A pair of age-appropriate scissors

2. A pack of any brand washable markers set (any count)

(Pee-wee, little and Elm artists)

3. Pack of colored pencils

4. Set of Brush Markers (Secondary Artists only)

5. Optional: Set of chalk or oil pastels.
