This popular class has now been extended to a two-week, all-day program to provide those children who have an interest in the visual arts the opportunity to develop skills in ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. Students experiment with traditional and non-traditional media including collage, watercolor, upcycling recycled materials, and textile design. Students have the opportunity to express their inner creative voice while learning techniques.
One of the main artistic emphasis of this class is ceramics. Students build 3d ceramic forms. While learning how to make their pieces appear realistic, they carve and glaze their fired pieces.
Visual Arts and Ceramics sessions are integrated with a theme and include individual and group projects that support learning and connections between the students. Three two-week sessions are available. The dates of the two-week offerings cannot be split up or changed.

Experiencing Italy, grades 2-5
During this Italy inspired session, Italian art and design culture are woven throughout our two-weeks together. We explore artists like da Vinci and contemporary fashion designers. Student projects can include creating self-portraits, drawing fashion sketches, or crafting a designer inspired t-shirt. We’ll hand-build ceramic pieces inspired by boats those found along the Amalfi Coast and popular foods like pizza, pasta and gelato that are found throughout the regions of Italy.
