School Year Classes

Discover Art

Ages: 5-7
Duration: 1 hour

In this engaging class students will draw favorite animals, characters, still life, vehicles and more while learning fundamental art elements: line, shape, texture, color, value and space. Our fun projects are geared towards developing drawing and painting skills within each theme, while also encouraging individual creativity and expression. While many of the projects are guided, each student works with his or her own vision and produces a unique finished piece.

As in all Thrive classes, there is no critique or competition. In this safe environment students learn that they can follow their instincts, explore new ideas and take chances in their work without fear of criticism. Media exploration will include markers, chalk and oil pastel, water color and acrylic paint, water-soluble pastels, glitter painting, and more. To honor and celebrate each child's learning, students are invited to participate in our Spring Art Walk
