Art Fun

Art Club

The focus of Art Club for our 2nd-5th graders to have their own place and time to create and make whatever is on their mind, just like a real artist's studio!   We use the Teaching for Artistic Behavior approach and let our emerging artists explore materials throughout the studio and choose how to best express their own ideas using the media of their preference to make artwork that is personally meaningful!  We balance this time with art lessons provided by our staff so that our students can also increase their knowledge about art, art history, color theory and other creative strategies, techniques and media.  Classes run from August through May only.

Little Artist

Teen Art Club

This class is designed to give teens an opportunity to relax, create, and socialize! Each week, we give step-by-step instruction for creating a new craft project. Socialization is highly encouraged throughout the meeting. We will learn basic crafting skills such as, hand sewing, painting, beading, jewelry making, clay, and many more. At the end of class, teens vote on what project they would like to do at the next meeting. This is perfect for middle schoolers who have aged out of our Art Club class and want to keep coming to YBS.  It is also great for creative kids who don't get to take art in school, or even kids who find making art a nice reprieve from the demands of middle school.
