  • Art Brains Spring 2018

The ART BRAINS program moves far beyond the average arts and crafts hour, inspiring kids to think independently, creatively problem-solve, and expand on their ideas in an atmosphere of high imagination and empowered experimentation. We know that kids engaged in the arts gain academic and problem-solving ability, confidence, interpersonal skills and empathy, and our creative curricula are designed with these qualities in mind. Art Brains kids create within our thoughtful projects considering themes of science, history, anthropology, nature, story-telling and magic! They always experiment with a variety of materials, and will draw, paint, sculpt, build, write, and more in a single session. Some sessions include video, music, and performative projects too. Join us this Spring for another inspiring season, and activate your *art brains*! Students will: tell collaborative stories inside a cozy fort using illustrated "story spinner" wheels, pretend to be detectives, solving mysteries of their own invention, send postcards from outer space, sculpt fascinating creatures that transform inside of a chrysalis, design their own spirit animals, and more!

Open to grades K – 5
8 classes: 4/6, 4/13, 4/20, 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, 5/18, 5/25
