Spring Classes


STEAM – Science + Technology + Engineering + ART + Math

Duration: 8 weeks
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Ages: 7 – 10 years

Let us use art to explore the science, technology, engineering and mathematics around us! There are so many ways we can use art to investigate the evolving world, so let us dive in. This creative class will allow us to experiment, build up, break down, and discover a whole bunch of really cool things. In this class we will create our own materials, grow from seeds, dive into colour mixing and use the power of art to learn.

Saturday Art Studio

Join us for our OPEN STUDIO CLASS. Each day we will explore a new material, concept or theme. We will look to Art History for inspiration, explore basic techniques and use our creative imaginations as artists to see what we can create. The artists will have creative decision making over what materials to use, how to use them and what their project will become. This class is designed to freely explore art materials, to learn through experimenting and by making mistakes. And, of course, to have a lot of art fun. This class is wonderful for any child who is a maker, builder, or creator.
