Modern Art Explorations Spring 2024
Location: Circle C Stables, 905 Pine Hills Ln., BH
Instructor: Shelly Adkins
Days/Time: Monday 1pm-3pm
Start Date: January 15, 2024
Additional Registration is not required at the site but we will ask participants and their guardians to fill out a liability release form at the beginning of the first class.
This class will explore various art techniques and mediums through study of famous artists and also through art projects (both individual and collaborative). During each class, students will be introduced to a famous Artist and their area of expertise, then they will be guided through an art project to exemplify their skills. We will produce works in the style of Kandinsky, Matisse, Alma Thomas, Tyree Guyton, Klee, and Mary Blair. At the end of our course, we will host an Art Show for the students and their families.
*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
