MUSIC

Everybody Rocks (Ages 8-11)
Everybody Rocks classes give kids the chance to learn how to make music together as a team. Guitars, drums, keyboards, basses and singers come together to ROCK. As the session progresses, students learn how to effectively work together through listening and improved instrument skills. Session’s end is celebrated with a concert, allowing young rockers to demonstrate what they have learned. Owning an instrument is helpful but not required.

CERAMICS

Ceramics (Grades 2-5)
Step into the fascinating and tactile world of ceramics. Join us as we create ceramic sculptures and pottery. We will learn basic hand-building skills: how to pinch, coil and slab build to create sculptures and how to throw on the wheel. We will cover centering, throwing, forming and finishing. Finally, we will use texture and glaze to add that personal touch to our work.

Ceramics (Grades 6-9)
Designed specifically for budding artists ages 12 to 15, this introductory course will encourage exploration through the hand building process. We will create sculptures using the fundamental ceramic techniques of construct, coil, pinch, and slab building. We will also explore the potter’s wheel and its many possibilities for creation. Whether the student has outgrown the younger class (grades 2-5) or is a first-timer, this class will offer an engaging array ceramic working possibilities that fit this age group well.

DRAWING

Drawing for Teens (Ages 14-18)
Is your teen into drawing? Do they sketch and doodle all over their homework? This class takes that desire to draw and provides a creative, yet structured, environment where students will learn to draw what they see, to control values, line, and form. Please bring a Sketchbook or Drawing Pad (at least 9x12”), Standard No. 2 Pencils, and a Sharpener. Class will be a mostly indoor drawing but will include outdoor work depending on weather.
