After School Art Club
Grades 2-6 on Wednesdays, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Program Description: If art class is your favorite subject in school, you will love Springfield Township's new After School Art Club! In each month-long session, you will work toward the completion of a master art project! Each month holds a different theme and focuses on the popular art projects. Best yet, you will be in a class with students from different schools who also love art. Make new friends who like the same things you do and become more skilled in the field you love! Because this program takes place right after school, students are encouraged to bring a snack and a drink with them to class.

She graduated with a degree in Studio Art from Denison University, then obtained her Masters in Art Education from Miami University. She completed her student teaching for Talawanda Schools, then taught art with the Finneytown Local School District for six years.

We will explore various materials and ways to create collages. We will begin by using silhouettes to create personalized collages and conclude with three dimension collages using tissue paper on bottles to create vases.

Students will investigate various forms of lettering. They will design and draw their own large-scale name, learn about color and value, and color their designs with Sharpie and colored pencil.
March - 4 weeks - Picasso-style Sculptures
Students will create a sculpture with a wood block, a wire coat hanger, and panty hose. Then they will gesso and paint over the sculpture to create a Picasso-like head. Details like hair will be added with yarn, markers and other materials.

Students will create an "under the sea" drawing with pencil and then go over it with Sharpie. They will color their drawing with oil pastels and paint over them with watercolor paint.
