Spring 2013 Museum Art Classes for Children and Teens
6 Saturdays, March 16–April 27, 2013 (no class March 30)
Morning: 10:00–11:30 or afternoon: 1:00–2:30
Your child can discover the wonders of the CMA collection and uncover his or her creativity in the process. Every class visits our galleries each week and then experiements with different art techniques.
Art for Parent and Child (age 3)
Mornings ONLY. Four hands are better than two! Parents and children learn together while creating all kinds of art inspired by gallery visits. Limit 12 pairs.
Mini-Masters: Pattern (ages 4–5)
Almost every gallery is overflowing with examples of patterns. We'll look for patterns in paintings, ceramics, textiles, and maybe even a mummy case. Children practice making patterns to hang up, wear, and play with.
Line Around (ages 5–6)
Young artists search for lines in our galleries and experiment producing their own lines using paintbrushes, pastel chalks, and even sticks.
Colorific (ages 6–8)
The focus is on color! What's your favorite color? Children mix colors in paint to create landscapes, portraits, and other images. They will also experiment with transparent, translucent, and opaque papers to make colorful collages.
Vivid Visions (ages 8–10)
Inspired by art in our galleries, students create colorful prints, collages, 3-D constructions, and paintings in a variety of media.
Start with the Basics #2 (ages 10–12)
In the Fall session we began to learn the basic fundamentals of art. In this class we will perfect our skills, practicing shading, drawing, color mixing, and using darks and lights as well as pattern in compositions. All levels welcome!
Teen Drawing Workshop (ages 13–17)
Afternoons ONLY. Teens use perspective, contour, and shading to create expressive drawings and linear designs. Students learn from observation in our galleries as well as exercises in the classroom.
Claymation: Bring Art to Life! (ages 11 and up)
Mornings ONLY. Create characters from armatures and polymer clay to populate and bring CMA images to life. Write your own story with these images as a stage, then utilize still cameras with our editing equipment to produce stop-motion animation shorts. Limit 10. Special price: $150, CMA Family members $125.
