Kindergarten • Mouse Paint

Students will explore colors with some mice in paint, then mix some colors on their own.

1st Grade • Exploring Textures

Students will look at examples of artwork that uses different textures and then make their own textured art using different kinds of paper and drawing supplies.    

1st Grade • Elements of Art Monsters!

Students will learn about lines, shapes, colors, and value while we make crazy monsters. We may see some famous artworks along the way.

2nd Grade • In a Jungle with Henri Rousseau

Using the art of famed French artist Henri Rousseau as inspiration, students will look at real jungles and put ideas together to make their own jungle artwork.

2nd Grade • Lines, Lines, and More Lines

Looking at lines, students will do a "line dance," make lines to add texture, and make a picture using lines. A very interactive field trip for our young visitors.

3rd Grade • Art Tells Stories

Through most of history, civilizations have used art to tell stories. Students will analyze art and the story artwork tells, and then draw pictures to tell their own story.

3rd Grade • Insects and Symmetry

We will look at some crazy and unusual insects and talk about their body parts and symmetry. Students will do a few simple projects to learn about symmetry and then draw an unusual insect that is symmetrical.

Any Grade 4th and Up:

Drawing Shadows and Shading:  A drawing lesson about light will teach students how to make a foresty winter landscape with pencil shading and adding shadows.

The Mona Lisa Pose:  There are many reasons why the Mona Lisa is famous, including her famous pose.  Students will look at several examples of the Mona Lisa pose, then make drawings of their own using the pose.

Abstract Art:  Strange animals, colors and shapes, and hard edge drawings are some of the elements students will use as they learn about and create abstract art.

Pop Art: From Andy Warhol's soup cans to Roy Lichtenstein's comics, students will look at pop art and then use bright colors to make colorful pop art of their own.
