AFTERNOON ART CLASS – FALL 2018
Grades 2 – 8
4 Classes: 2:15 – 4:00
Fee: $65.00 (includes all materials)
Afternoon Art is an opportunity for students to enjoy and explore art in small multi-age groups after school. Projects incorporate materials and techniques not typically offered during regular art class.
This session we will create two Halloween projects. The first is a 3-D haunted house. It will be mounted on a foam board base complete with a graveyard and hosts of spooky characters. Our next project will be a shadow puppet on wire that is mounted to a wooden base that the students will decorate. These create a fun and creepy silhouette on a wall when you shine a light on them.
Please complete the attached registration form
and return it to the main office along with your check made payable to Diane Spetrino. A portion of the fee is donated to the school. Indicate first, second and third choice. This will help in scheduling. I will try to accommodate car pools and special requests so indicate them on your form. You will receive confirmation of your class choice.
