Summer Art Explosion for Kids

Kids aged 6-9 can enjoy 6 days of art adventures at Center for the Arts Evergreen.
$135 for CAE Members / $145 for non-members (this fee covers all supplies for all six class sessions.)

Week One—Summer Selfies: June 23 & June 25 from 9-11 am 
Week Two—Matisse Watercolor: June 30 & July 2 from 9-11 am
Week Three—Scavenger/Found Object Birdhouses July 7 & July 9 from 9-11 am

Summer Selfies 2 days: Exploring the history and importance of Portraitures. We will begin by studying our own faces and learn how to draw our faces. Then we will draw another face with colored pencils. Students will be asked to bring in a photo they would like to re-create on the second date of the class.

Matisse Watercolor 2 days: Paint a classic Matisse painting if it was painted in your house. A brief look at who is Henri Matisse and his famous painting “The Goldfish” painted in 1912. We will be incorporating the drawing techniques we learned in selfies to draw the goldfish painting and paint it using watercolors. The second day we will personalize the goldfish painting by utilizing Matisse’s cut-out collage style and changing the background to being set in your home or room. ​​​​​​​

Scavenger/Found Object Birdhouses 2 days: A brief discussion about birdhouses/nests and fairy houses.  The students will begin by designing several bird nests in which we will go on a scavenger/nature walk to collect natural objects (pine cones, branches, leaves, stones, etc.) and start creating birdhouses/nests and more.

Class size is limited to 10 students and the class will take place outside under a tent. Each student will have his/her own table and supply kit to allow for social-distancing and sanitation requirements. A full list of Covid-19 procedures will be sent upon registration. Please check out our website for a complete list of our Covid-19 reopening policies.
