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.
Class Schedule 2015

Learning a new skill. Creating something beautiful. Self-expression. Intense concentration. These are experiences that bring relaxation and renewal into our stressful lives.
ARTree is pleased to announce a new drop-in class for adults, held every 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library. The “Relax and Craft” sessions will provide free instruction and materials to spend an hour engaged in creativity.

On October 16th The ARTree completed our fall class series called The Many Faces Of Art, at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex. The classes offered a variety of materials and techniques to help students explore the human face in art. Each class began with a slideshow, providing insight into the artist whose works inspired the day’s lesson. Classes included watercolors, plaster, pastels, collage, mixed media, ink, and even non-verbal facial expression, pictured here.
On November 7th, ARTree teachers led a project exploring the beautiful colors of Fall leaves. Using a watercolor and a wax resist technique, kids ages 7 and up delighted us with their creations. Many participants were heard requesting to make multiple pieces!
Music to our ears.
