Saturday Art School

Spring 2021 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.

**Due to COVID-19 restrictions and college policies, this year we adapted our program to provide online lessons for students to apply at home. These lessons will still be developed by our advanced art education students, under the direction of faculty and graduate assistants, however instruction will be online and we will not be supplying materials to the young artists. For this reason, we will not be following our traditional registration process for Saturday Art School 2021. Please email for more information about this year's program. **

 Where: Google Classroom

2021 Theme: Community: a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

It is no secret that 2020 has become a series of strange events making us feel isolated, questioning “what could possibly be next?” As a result, communities have come together in more ways than one - to create awareness, build relationships, or even to celebrate the little things that have gone right.  It has been said that community is about doing something together that makes belonging matter. Is a community given or built? What does it mean to be part of a community? How do we establish a community? Can the feeling of community be attributed to the presence of one specific person or multiple? What brings a community together? What are the little and big ways we feel, are, and interact with their community?

 When: TBD
