Thursday's Classes Have Begun!

We had a great afternoon Thursday with another set of new classes and clubs. The younger group in Art 101 started the session with a little line practice and exercises. This class is focused on the elements and principles of design. They will be doing projects using various mediums and focused on predetermined elements.

Book Club is starting this session with the book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh. We read the first chapter during our meeting. Using the wonderfully detailed descriptions of the story, the group created multi-media collages depicting the home of the Frisby family. They used all natural materials found outside such as sand for the stone and grasses and feathers for the bed. They turned out really neat and the kids didn't want to stop. I love doing these projects so the kids can get that sense of realism they can touch out of their readings.

Don't forget to sign up for the Mom's Night Out for Tuesday! Also, we will start getting some of our gift items in this week so stay tuned for some yummy, creativity conjuring gift ideas for the kids and by the kids!
