Class Location: Civic Square Building, 4th floor, Room CSB 407
Course Description, Fall semester: Send your child on an around-the-world artistic adventure! Art Making embraces all the senses as students begin to draw, paint, collage, and sculpt. Young artists explore color, shapes, gestures, and objects as they expand their imagination and begin to tell stories through imagery. Projects may include exploring other cultures, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs, Central American temple building, and Chinese dragon mask-making. This course occurs in two segments intended to be taken sequentially as children develop their visual repertoire.

Course Description, Spring semester: Explore drawing and painting through time and place. Develop projects rooted in observation, imagination, memory, and experience. This course will visit the visual arts of different cultures, such as African patterns, Tibetan mandalas, and Aboriginal dream painting, as well as the western traditions, such as still-life painting, Expressionism, Cubism, and Pop Art. All ART-haus classes encourage personal exploration with materials and process.

All Art Making students are recommended to add the Drawing Club for Children and Young People at the Zimmerli Art Museum. While it entails some added cost, this course is a wonderful compliment to all ART-Haus classes.

Both academic and experimental approaches will be offered. Experimental approaches may include: visualizing sounds, exploring the sense of time and change, different qualities of light and shadow, and color through abstraction. Students have the opportunity to develop individual projects that will incorporate all basic drawing and painting course material.
