The ARTree provides an “Arts Sampler” of classes to introduce our students to a variety of arts experiences. We weave the sampler of classes together through a common theme.
During each six-week class schedule we offer visual arts classes such as painting, origami, sculpture, and collage. Performing arts classes have included story telling, salsa and hip-hop dancing, rhythm instruments, and song writing. By offering such a variety of classes we are able to find an arts passion in every child who participates.
For dates and times of our current and upcoming classes, please check the calendar.
Our first Master’s Class, taught by Michael Powell, consisting of six weeks of watercolor classes, was a big success. The students really enjoyed learning new watercolor techniques each week. Michael will be back this winter for another six weeks of Master’s classes. Watch the Seasons magazine for updates.
Summer classes at the Newhall Community Center featured three-dimensional projects taught by a six different artists. The students fully embraced each activity. Everyone really enjoyed seeing all of the finished projects at the mini art show held on July 29th. Fall classes are listed in the new Seasons magazine. Classes in “The Many Faces of Art” series will begin on Thursday, September 11th and will continue for six weeks.
The ARTree, parents and children celebrated Valentines Day by creating marvelous HEART creations made out of pipe cleaners, foil and plaster.
The projects are usually kept at the library for decor, but in this case the children took them home for their loved ones.
The Holiday window painting class went very well. The children were fast learners and finished just in time to show the artwork to their parents after the class ended. It was in plain view for all Santa Clarita residents to see. If you get a chance, drive down Main Street in Newhall.
