The Arts has announced its spring class and summer camp schedules. Classes are taught by well-known professional artists from Hunterdon and Bucks counties for students of all ages and abilities in a fun and inspiring environment. This spring The Arts is very happy to introduce exciting new family programs and workshops into their established program of “regular favorites”.
Parent/Child Art Start for ages 3-5 will encourage budding artists creativity while exploring art making materials and techniques together. Family Sundays will be held on the first Sunday of each month (3:00-5:00). On May 1, families can work together on one group creation, or side by side on mosaic garden stepping stones. Projects will include seasonal themes, popular requests and more. Everything Art, for ages 4-6, offers painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and craft projects specially designed for young ones to explore their creativity. Ceramics & Pottery, for ages 7-12, explores the many possibilities that clay has to offer while building ceramic sculptures and pots. Drawing: Focus on Animals, for ages 7-12, is designed to develop artistic skills and creativity while learning techniques used to draw animals of every kind from pictures and imagination.
Kids up to age 12 will also enjoy Fun Friday Workshops, Mother’s Day Gift Making and Spring Vacation Art Camp.
The Arts Summer Camp offers weekly full and half day programs for ages 4-12, August 1 thru August 26. The Arts brings together a community of established artists with youth to create a fun and inspiring experience for all. Each child is offered the opportunity to try new art forms and develop skills through ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking & craft projects. Each week offers new activities, themes and art-making ideas. Limited class size allows for one-on-one attention to nurture and discover the creative talents in each individual.
For adults, The Arts offers weekly classes, for all levels, in Watercolor Painting, Ceramics & Pottery and Painted Canvas Floorcloths. As a new addition to the weekly schedule, open studio hours will be held on Fridays (10:00-1:00) for students and artists who need more time and space to work on projects. Open studio hours are non-instructional and can be used for ceramics, painting, drawing and more.
The Arts is located at 21 Risler Street in Stockton, NJ. www.TheArtsStockton.com
