Saturday Art School

Spring 2018 Semester

Who / What: Saturday Art School is an extracurricular visual arts program for children in grades Pre-K 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.

Where: Nazareth College Arts Center, upper level

2018 Theme: From Ordinary to Extraordinary. The ordinary, or the mundane is often taken for granted. We spend more of our time documenting and celebrating the extraordinary—birthdays, graduations weddings. But it is the ordinary that makes up most of our lives. Learning to perceive the extraordinary in the ordinary allows us to enjoy, honor, and make meaning out of the everyday. In this session of Saturday Art School the teachers have developed lessons that allow their students to consider extraordinary ways to use ordinary materials and/or lessons that ask students to consider the ways in which the ordinary parts of their lives are indeed extraordinary.
