Notre Dame at Night

Grades 2-5

After the devastating April fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, art teacher Patty Palmer was inspired to create a lesson plan for this gorgeous project. It represents Notre Dame when it was illuminated by projected lights during shows in 2017 and 2018.    

We will use watercolor and marker to create the cathedral and then mount it on black paper. We'll also learn some of the history and architectural significance of this iconic building, and the effects of the recent fire.

$20.00

Saturday 10/26 - 9:30-11:15am

Tuesday 10/29 - 3:45-5:30

Hours are meant to accommodate the various times that school is out - arrive when you are able.

 

In After School Art Clubs kids can move between 3 areas: 

   

- Work on the guided art project of the day.

   

- Explore mediums and tools we have set up, like an open art studio. Choices might include paint, paper, clay, beads, pipe cleaners, wood, felt, pom poms, markers, wire, foam, cardboard, and more.

   

- Play! We have a cozy seating area that will be set up with fun things like Grimm's wooden toys, nature blocks, Magnatiles, art books, miniatures, and puzzles. There will also be something gooey, slimey or sticky - water beads, slime, oobleck, kinetic sand - you never know.

These 3 elements will be different at every session.

Parents and caregivers:

 feel free to drop off kids, or stay and help yourself to the Keurig Bar.

   Paint Pouring

Ages 7+

Painting has never been so messy, and so fun

Acrylic paint pouring has become very popular in the last several years. It is a playful, unpredictable way to create abstract art. Kids of any age will enjoy this process (hello, teens!). Even people who are "not artistic" will be able to make a unique, colorful painting. 

Paintings use a LOT of paint and take between 2 and 7 days to dry completely. After they're dry, we will seal them and arrange pick up/delivery with you.

Thursday, 11/14 - 9:30-11:15 (no school - Wingra)
