Art Cellar Houston After School Art Class is every Monday from 430-6p
This after-school art class is offered to children ages 5+ seeking an in-depth art experience revolving around art history and various forms of art. Each class begins with 15 minutes of art history on an artist. We then provide the children with step-by-step instructions to create their own masterpieces based on that artist's medium and/or technique. Children will be working on a different medium each week. This link is to provide you the option to reserve each month we are in session for the 2024 school year (January to May 2024).
The following is a synopsis of the mediums we will be working through over a ten-week period and not an actual account of our classes week by week. For details about our classes offered each week, please see our "Class Calendar" located on the menu bar.
Acrylic Painting on Canvas
We will uncover the basics of acrylic painting providing instructions on how to sketch with a paintbrush, highlights, shading, mixing and blending, and inspiring the children to explore their creative juices.
We will uncover the basics of sketch creating two drawings reflecting highlights and shading. The first part of the class will consist of four warm-up sketches inspiring the children to explore their creative juices. The second drawing will be wrapped around the artist we learned this week. We will focus on highlighting and shading each drawing with pencils and charcoal.
We will explore the primary technique of color blending in pastels while drawing, and creating dimensions with colors.
Alcohol Inks on tiles
Alcohol inks are an acid-free, highly pigmented, and fast-drying medium to be used on non-porous surfaces.We paint on ceramic tiles of various sizes, coffee cups, tea plates, and Yupo Paper, using cotton balls, Q-tips, and other household items to create our own unique designs.
We will explore the color wash technique, and practice layering light, medium, and dark colors to create dimension.
Paper Mache Sculpture Making Part 1
In this fun class, we show children how to build a sculpture with household products to create dimensions. Design and layering are a part of this session.
Paper Mache Sculpture Making Part 2
In this second edition of our sculpture building class, we show children how to paint their sculptures in detail or in abstract form.
Acrylic Pour "The Science Experiment"
The acrylic pour class is what we call "The Science Experiment", combining acrylic paint, pouring medium, and liquids that evaporate once they blend with acrylic paint (H2O or Isopropyl Alcohol). Once they evaporate the results leave behind some pretty cool cells and creatures.
Exploring Anime with Pencil Colors and Pastels
We will review the history of anime, its founding fathers, and the evolution of Japanese anime art through the last 100 years. Following, we will guide the children to make their own anime characters, and then how to color with pastels and wax pencil colors.
A more in-depth look into Pastels with color blocking, layering, and using light-colored pastels to highlight and blend.

Acrylic painting on canvas will explore the primary colors, blending to create secondary and tertiary colors, drawing with a paintbrush, and creating dimensions with colors.
