Creative Art Expressions

Creative Art Expressions is a class for children, K-6th grade, to develop artistic skills and techniques through the creative process by using art media. Each week, a theme will be provided for the students to learn about the history of classic and contemporary artists while using traditional materials (markers, pencils, crayons, pastels) and non-traditional materials (fabric, feathers, collecting items from nature).
