Artist of the Week: Edgar Degas - January 19th & 21st

For the week of January 19th, the Artist of the Week is Edgar Degas, a French painter and sculptor. Students will learn about his life, art techniques and the time and culture in which he lived. Students will then have the chance to try out some of the  art techniques of Degas and the impressionist movement.

Monday, January 19th, 2:30 to 3:50  - TWO spaces available (these are the last two Monday openings)
Wednesday, January 21st, 2:30 to 3:50 - FOUR spaces available

Students will sketch from a live ballet model then create a multi-media painting using watercolor, chalks and more. Time permitting, students will have the chance to create action sculpture using foil. 

NOTE ON AGE RECOMMENDATIONS: My Age 6 - 9 classes are full with a waiting list for the semester and the age 10+ classes are empty. I am changing all my art classes to ages 6 - 10. The Monday and Wednesday classes will be the same curriculum as a result. As always, age limits are guidelines. You know your children better than I do. Focused five year olds are welcome as are pre-teens who want to learn and don't mind a class full of "little kids".
