Westside Montessori After School Art Program 2021-2022 School Year

This After School Art Class is offered to the students attending Westside Montessori, on campus, every Thursday for ages 4 and up from 3-5p. Breaks offered every 30-45 minutes (as needed).

This After School Art Program is for children ages 4 and up seeking an in-depth art experience revolving around art history and various forms of art.  Each class begins with 15-20 minutes of art history on a different artist each week. We then provide the children with step-by-step instructions to create their own masterpieces based in 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 2021-2022 school year.
 
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 paintbrush, and creating dimension with colors.
Week 2 - Sketching Basics
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 learn this week.  We will focus on highlighting and shading each drawing with pencils and charcoal.
Week 3 - Pastels
We will teach the essentials of how to color with Pastels. This includes color blocking, layering, and using highlights to blend.
Week 4 - Alcohol Inks
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 5 - Watercolor Basics
We will explore the color wash technique, and practice layering light, medium, and dark colors to create dimension.
Week 6 - Paper Mache Sculpture making Part 1
In this fun class, we show children how to build a sculpture with household products to create dimension. Design and layering are a part of this session. 
Week 7 - 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. 
Week 8 - 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.  
Week 9 - Exploring Anime
We will review 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 learn this week.  We will focus on highlighting and shading each drawing with pencils and charcoal.
Week 10 - Acrylic Paint on Canvas
A more in-depth look into Pastels with color blocking, layering, and using highlights to blend.
Week 11 - 3-D Canvas Painting
