Afterschool Art Studio at Wilkins
Come join the creative arts studio for kids in grades 1-4! Holly Majkut and Jessica Anderson are excited to collaborate and join forces to offer the Afterschool Arts program! Allow your child to discover or nurture their inner artist through exploring a variety of art materials. Art studio time will allow your child to create their own masterpieces. Specific art mediums will be introduced each monthly session to allow the artist exposure and increased experience. (Schedule below). Sample ideas and directives will be available to assist with sparking creativity and imagination. Crafting and drawing supplies will also be available each class. This is not a formal art instruction class. The art studio concept focuses on creating and exploring art materials, having fun, and socializing. All art materials are provided and creations are brought home at the end of each class or each monthly session.
