For children who love to spend time creating art, the Mispillion Art League will offer eight-session weekly kids clubs beginning Tuesday, Jan. 23.
The art club for ages 5-8 will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday to offer participants the opportunity to start building skills. Students will be introduced to a variety of media including painting, printmaking, 3-D projects, collage, drawing and more. Each club meeting includes a fun planned art activity designed to inspire thinking, teach technique, and offer creative support.
Ages 9-14 will meet from 7 to 8 p.m. to explore fun and engaging projects for all skill levels. Exploration of individual ideas and creativity is encouraged. Instructors will focus on a wide variety of media such as painting, printmaking, 3-D, collage, pastels, pen and ink, photography and mosaic design. Works by famous artists will be shared. Each club meeting will include a planned activity and/or a free choice project, with creative guidance available each step of the way.
For both clubs, week one will have children decorate their own art club T-shirt which they will wear each week to protect clothing. T-shirts will be provided and are included with the club fee. Shirts will be sent home after week eight. Cost per eight-week session is $95 for members and $115 for nonmembers. Additional sessions will begin Tuesday, March 27, and Tuesday, June 5.
