Children’s Art Classes

Jennifer Martin will be hosting the March children’s art classes at the Chesterton Art Center starting Thursday, March 1. The goal is to introduce children to various artists, their styles and techniques, with projects reflecting what they are learning. Classes meet weekly and are open to all ages and skill levels. Several mediums will be used including drawing, painting, papier mache, mosaic, sculpture, collage and more. The schedule of classes is as follows:

Monday 1-2 p.m., Preschool 4-5 year-olds
Monday 3:30-5 p.m., After School (Beginner) 5-8 year-olds
Tuesday 1-2 p.m., Preschool 3-4 year-olds
Tuesday 3:30-5 p.m., After School (Intermediate) 6-9 year-olds
Wednesday 11-12 a.m., Preschool 4-5 year-olds

Thursday 3:30-5 p.m., After School (Advanced) 8-12 year-olds
Thursday 5:15-6:45 p.m., After School (Advanced Painting) 10-16 year-olds

Each month, a different artist will be highlighted. The featured artist for March is Mark Rothko, an American artist who lived from 1903-1970. He is generally identified as an abstract expressionist who created large paintings with color as the focus. The children will work on projects that relate to Rothko’s style.
