NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Awaken your child’s imagination and creativity in our Online After School Art Club! This session is dedicated to looking at and making artwork inspired by the theme, “Feeling Healthy and Strong.”
Artists will learn about social emotional responses to art and stressors in their day to day lives with weekly yoga, breathing and light exercise activities. Kids will gain both confidence and an understanding of the visual arts while building painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed-media skills.
Before the session begins, each student will receive an art box with all the supplies needed for the session. During each weekly class, Museum Educator Mikhayla Harrell will be live on Zoom to guide kids through deep art observation, critical thinking, art making procedures and mindfulness practices.
All students will create an amazing portfolio of artwork which they will be proud to share at home and in an online exhibition presented at the end of the session. Ogden Museum After School Art Club is tailored for artists in second through fifth grades. If located in the Greater New Orleans area, the art box of supplies will be delivered to the address listed on the registration by the club start date. Out of town shipping is available for an additional fee.
