Children's perceptual ability, motor skills, and artistic confidence are enhanced in this hands-on get-dirty class focused on developing eye-hand coordination and utilizing basic hand building skills. Students learn how to make clay models and paint over then.
Approaches include both representational and abstract schools of expression. We've taught beginners to masters and we've learned that everything builds on just a few basic concepts that we will teach you here.
Over the past 35 years, our art teaches at the Almaden School in our San Jose studio have taught thousands of young artists with many going on to successful careers in the arts. Even more have gone onto successful lives that include art as part of well rounded and successful lifestyles.
Our instructors also always work to maintain the child’s self esteem and personal sense of creativity. Classes meet once a week for 60 minutes year round to ensure continuity for the students. As students complete a painting, their artwork is prominently displayed as part of the Art of the Week or Artist of the Month program.
Each of these classes has an additional $10 per month materials fee which covers all materials and supplies needed for the class.
