THIS YEAR WE TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD AND CREATE ART INSPIRED BY THE DIFFERENT CULTURES, ANIMALS, LANDMARKS AND ART OF EACH UNIQUE PLACE WE VISIT. EVERY ARTIST WILL ALSO GET A PASSPORT STYLE SKETCHBOOK TO ADD TO THROUGHOUT THE CLASS. WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED!
Fall semester classes begin after Labor Day and run every week until winter break. We follow the Hamilton County or Bradley County calendar. If school is closed for any reason, classes will not be held that day.
Spring semester classes begin the last week in January and run every week until school is out in May.
We are going back to our two Art Show schedule this year! Thank you so much for the feedback. I agree that it worked better with two shows. There will be a Grand ART SHOW after EACH semester of art this year. Each show will showcase art from the countries we visited in that semester and every artist will receive a custom art award. We LOVE showing off all the amazing works of art the young artists create!
At Children's Art Place, every artist is a winner! We value everyone's unique vision and masterpieces and create a safe space where they can create freely. Students are welcome to attend both semesters or only one if that best fits your extracurricular schedule. Every semester is unique and packed full of fun, learning & creating!
Tuition is $175 for the entire semester and includes all supplies and instruction plus the grand art show and award in the spring!
Homeschool students are welcome at any of our locations as they fit your schedule. We also have a homeschool class at the East Brainerd studio. Reach out by email to be included on that list.
THE NEW HOMESCHOOL CLASS IS NOW SET FOR THURSDAY'S AT 3:30 PM IN OUR EAST BRAINERD STUDIO. PLEASE CALL TO REGISTER FOR NOW.
IMAGINATION & CREATIVITY SOAR at every Children’s Art Place program. The development of children is the focus. Here children are taught step by step about the creative process, while learning how to use and care for the materials. This allows them the freedom & encouragement to let go, experiment and simply create without judgment. Each class teaches something new, mixing art history, art vocabulary and various exciting materials in a fun unique way with projects that are sure to please!
Students learn the basics and gain a strong foundation in the arts. Line, color, shape, perspective, rhythm and composition are all taught as the building blocks of art. Focus on direct observation, working from inspiration and imagination are all important and explored. Art vocabulary is introduced each week allowing artists to begin to expand their knowledge of art ideas and how to talk about their art as well as the work of others. Through the study of the Great Masters, Contemporary artists and the art all around everyday life, young artists become inspired and create amazing masterpieces of their own.
Classes meet on site at different schools and are available on a first come, first served basis. Creativity and experimentation are encouraged with age-appropriate projects. Children are encouraged to express themselves as they explore many techniques and different art materials. The children’s Art Place curriculum is carefully developed to meet Academic Standards for Visual Arts and many lessons align with the Common Core Standards. We also value Art for Art’s Sake and provide some simply fun lessons and enjoy the process of making art, while other lessons integrate math, science, language arts, social studies and music. New enriching art lessons await students each week that challenge and excite!
