Our pride and love of sharing the arts has grown into a division committed to education which we call Art-4-Fun. Please see more about how we share our passion with school age children in their school learning environment as well as providing creative entertainment for kids and adults alike. We offer art courses, art parties and supplemental art education for schools as well.
Like Lego Clubs and Chess Clubs we work with students at extension to give them more extra-curricular choices. It is a fun, educational way for students to use their own creative license to build confidence and take home projects that they are not only proud of but want to share with friends and family.
Art4Fun was originally designed in 2011 to give students the opportunity to learn about art in a fun hands-on fashion while expanding extra curricular activities available to them. It is a great addition to the art they do in school or extension. We can implement an art program or supplement the existing one.
Our art projects designed for students to learn about "The Masters," both their techniques and mediums. We work with acrylic paint mixed with salt and coffee grounds to add texture, ink tense verses water color pencils, found objects, fabrics, beads, shells, hard wood, old world egg tempera, just to highlight a few.
We are current with live Scan and Shield the Vulnerable, CPR and current safety standards for students with medical allergies and response in case of emergency. A flyer is provided to introduce the monthly project. Parents sign up and pay for their children to take the extension art class. There is no fee for the hosting school.
