Join HCA’s After School Art Lab for fun and interactive art making experiences designed for young artists in 1st-5th grades. In ongoing 6-week sessions, students explore a variety of visual art media, techniques and concepts, and learn of diverse artists, artistic practices, and themes.
This first 6-week session will focus on sculpture and 3-D art. We will cover a range of projects from wood and wire sculptures to cardboard 3-D masks to kinetic mobiles for the garden to clay sculpture pinch pots and more. As we mix it up, students will experience a variety of media and concepts.
Our small classes nurture curiosity and creativity. We encourage young artists to engage in hands-on projects, skill-based instruction and free choice options. Process is valued over the finished product. The desired outcome is self-expression as young artists connect, experiment and play through the creative process.
Our artists/instructors are experienced art educators who will rotate based on the specific discipline being offered in any one of our 6-week sessions. Future sessions may include painting, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, collage, mini mosaics, etc.
