Saturday Art School

Spring 2019 Semester

Who / What: Saturday Art School is an extracurricular visual arts program for children in grades Kindergarten to 12. Local children and teens explore ideas and materials with advanced art education students, under the direction of faculty and graduate assistants, each Saturday for eight weeks.

** Please note: Pre-school classes will NOT be offered this semester in Saturday Art School. Children must be 5 years old to enroll in the Kindergarten class.

Where: Nazareth College Arts Center, upper level

2019 Theme: Home: Of or relating to the place where one lives. They say “home is where the heart is” but home is also a place—a place we go to, a place we come from. Home is malleable—we change our homes from time to time as we transition in life because we grow up, because our families change, because we want a different lifestyle, because something has made our homes unsafe.  How is it that some places feel like home and others don't? What does it mean to make a new home? How does it feel to go home after an absence?  Are homes a given or do we “make" our homes?
