Art Cellar Houston "Wednesdays Kids Paint" After School Art Program

2020 School Year (Jan-May)

The Art Cellar Houston "Kids Paint" After School Art Program is for children to learn the basics of painting with acrylics, watercolor, and alcohol inks. This class features 20 minutes of art history about an artist, followed by step-by-step instructions to guide children towards creating an art project surrounding this artist.  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 2020 school year, starting January 2020 and ending May 2020.  

This Kids Paint After School Art Class is every Wednesday from 4 to 6p, with breaks are every 30-45 minutes (or as needed).

Week 1 - Acrylic Painting on Canvas

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

Week 2 - Watercolor Basics

We will explore the color wash technique, and practice layering light, medium, and dark colors to create dimension.

Week 3 - 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.

Week 4 - Acrylic Pour "The Science Experiment"

Acrylic Pour is a science experiment combining acrylic paint, pouring medium, and liquids which turn to gas once they blend with acrylic paint (H2O or Isopropyl Alcohol). We will explore two formulas on two different canvas'. This class is geared for ages 7 and up. We use Isopropyl Alcohol as our mixing agent.  If you or your children have an aversion to strong odors, please bring a breathing mask. 

Please pack snacks and beverages as this is not included in our price!  Painting supplies and instructions will be provided to your child.
