Saturday Art classes for Children: Art for Two & Art Adventures

Aug

08

The start of school is upon us and what better way to supplement your child’s education that to enroll him in Saturday art classes at The Cummer.  Studies prove that a strong arts education makes for creative thinkers and prepares children to become our leaders of tomorrow.

Art for Two meets the 2nd Saturday of each month and is for children ages 3 to 5 and an adult friend. That means two artists are twice the fun! This class is designed to make the three to five year old child feel successful and comfortable with their first adventures in the process of making art.

Art Adventures meets the 3rd Saturday of each month. Children ages 6 – 12 years begin their art experience with a visit to the gallery, where they are engaged in meaningful discussions of the social, historical and artistic content of featured artwork.  Afterward, they return to the studio to create a masterpiece using a variety of art materials and processes.

So, don’t forget to add the rich experiences of art classes at The Cummer to your child’s fall schedule for a well rounded education.  For more information call 904-355-0630.
