Welcome to The Open Studio, where your child will find his or her way through a hub or inspiration, support & opportunities to be creative, to learn, make friends and to bring out his or her own inner artist. This year we have chugim in Art, English, Drama and Carpentry. Check out our schedule below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the chug that is right for your child.
DIY “Do It Yourself” Art
If its not flat, we will make it in this chug. We will build, sculpt, melt, curl, bake, shrink, twist and attach; wires, paper, clay, FIMO, plastalina, cardboard, plastic, fabrics, plaster as we explore the concepts of shape, structure, texture, color and line in DIY projects that we find and design.
Children will learn the English letters and their sounds though a different corresponding art project each week. Children build an alphabet book throughout the year with their pictures and artwork as they learn to recognize and put together simple words. Ages 3-6, English spoken. Includes portfolio book.
Carpentry: Hand Building
We will learn to build with our hands using basic carpentry skills. We will build in wood, cardboard, and learn to up-cycle plastic and other materials in our projects. Grades 4-5
Teens will learn basic carpentry skills. We will start the year with learning our tools through the building of smaller objects, tools, shelves, etc and will continue with our own self-designed projects such as benches, tables, step-stools, etc. We will work with hand and jig saws, awls, sanding, hammers, nails, wood glue and paints. Grades 6-11
Games and activities through drama. Increase your child’s self confidence and let their inner actor/actress shine forth! Grades 1-5
Science of Art
Explore that magical place where science and art meet. Make slime, rainbow volcanoes, sidewalk chalk paints, homemade egg paint and more. We will learn about color mixing, crystals, solutions, mixtures, magnetism, absorption and apply these concepts in our artwork. Ages 3-6
Our namesake program. Children are given lots of ideas and inspiration to try out various techniques and art forms while focusing on alternating elements of art: color, shape, line, texture and value. For the first half of the year, we introduce and teach skills in various art forms such as: paper arts, glass and mosaic arts, textiles and fabric, jewelry making, painting & drawing, sculpture and more. As the year goes on, the children are given more choices and eventually design their own long-term projects. Grades 1-6
Little Guys (Open Studio Juniors)
Same as above, but with a bit more structure, and a focus on the elements of art: color, line, shape, texture and value. Ages 2-3
Open Studio Masters
Same as the Open Studio, but with a bit more time and free choice. Pre-teens and teens are empowered and encouraged to explore their individuality, creativity and confidence. We start each session with a 10 minute art meditation (Warm-Up), where students are encouraged to create in their sketchbooks using only the materials provided. Ages 11-15.
Painting & Drawing
We will explore the elements of art and drawing using the 5 elements of art as our guide and will work in pencil, charcoal, chalks, watercolors, and acrylics. We will learn and work in various techniques representing realistic forms such as landscapes, still-life and perspective.
