ART Makers 5+ 8+ 10+
*PLEASE SEE SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ON OUR ABOUT PAGE REGARDING THE FUTURE OF NEST STUDIO.
ART Makers is a more traditional art class where students learn how to take care of art materials, use them in both traditional ways and surprising new ways to create works of art to keep and share. Children will work with pencils, paints, clay and inks in 3 week increments through out the 9 week term.
Art Makers starts with a 10 minute visual literacy session followed by a guided 40 minute art making activity and a 10 minute art material care session. Children will participate in art activities and story time to introduce the concepts of colour, texture, composition and technique. They will develop their fine motor skills and become familiar with art materials all whilst developing their problem solving skills.
Children are encouraged to use their wonderful imaginations, opening their eyes to see and understand the world around them.
The story time routine is a favourite amongst the children, quality picture books are enjoyed by all and promote the children's visual literacy skills as well as introduce art concepts in a familiar manner.
Each child works at their own pace in a small group setting and is encouraged to develop their own style.
