Children’s Art Class @ From the HeART Gallery
Nov 22 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
  • Children’s Art Classes ARE BACK!!!!
  • Brand New Location
  • Brand New BIGGER Classroom
  • Teacher: Samitha Edwards, BFA Fine Arts and Art History, Teaching Certification in Art

This is NOT your average kid class….adults enjoy it too and learn something new each time they come 

 

HERE, your children will be learning Art History, Technique, and Elements & Principles of Art from A-Z!

The first 30 minutes of class will be the Art History portion, where your children will get to know all the Masters, as well as the contemporary. We will be going from Primitive Cave art all the way to Andy Warhol.

Your children will leave here with new knowledge of the arts, printed handouts of the day’s lessons, and a completed piece of artwork.

We will go through ALL mediums, some will messier than others, and some will leave permanent stains. I will supply smocks for everyone, but be sure to drop off your kids with play clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, just in case 

Classes will be every Friday, 4-7pm, which gives parents a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the shops and restaurants right next door to the gallery :)

Pre-registration is preferred, but we also take walk-ins.
