For Ages 5-10
A little bit of this, a little bit of that. This multi-media class gives students the opportunity to work with a variety of art mediums while focusing on self-expression. Explore printmaking, painting, collage, sculpting and more. In KIDS CREATE, little artists will experiment with endless artistic techniques as they learn to expand their creativity and imagination.
Each class will begin with a story that will engage students and set the tone for the art project of the day. Time will be set aside at the end of each class for children to explore art materials freely and just create!
We are excited to have in studio two talented Bridgeland artists who have loads of experience teaching Kids Art Classes. Welcome Andrea Lau and Janel Nail! These instructors have co-programmed Kids Create Class. Each week either Andrea or Janel will be in class teaching students.
