Homeschool Art Class


With Tami DeLisle

For 1st grade through 12th. An art appreciation and skill building formatted class. Explore a famous artist each week and participate in an art making activity based on that artist.The projects are adapted to fit the needs and skill levels of each student. Held the first through fourth Thursdays of month.

We have been offered an opportunity to enter a book writing and illustrating program offered through our local retired teacher organization. I have created a plan to assist the students in writing and illustrating a story that they will then "Self Publish" (Print and bind) and submit to the organization for review and possible sending on to the State Level. (There are no money prizes at the local level, but a fun group party!)
I am offering a book writing class each Thursday in January from 1-3 (except January 26). Students aged 8-18 will spend some time talking about character development, plot ideas and the idea of coming to a climax and story resolution for the first hour and then create images to support the story. Each age group has a different word goal, but the same basic requirements. Each student will need to spend a significant amount of time at home to complete various stages, and will have the opportunity to share story line and plot in the group to help grow and refine the story. Stories should be typed before submission and illustrations will be added through out the story.
I will invite a local authors to join us and share their writing processes and am planning a field trip to Staples to see our stories become bound into books.

Traditional Art Making will return in February as we spend the semester exploring print making. From mono-prints to engraving we will explore past and current artists and try our hand at a variety of styles. ( I am personally looking forward to a screen printing activity!) More details to come! Classes will be offered from Feb Thru April ages 12+ from 1:00-2:00 and 2:00-3:00 for 7-11, a 5-6 yr class will be offered from 3:00-4:00 (note slight time change, based on older students' request)

*Book Writing will be Jan 5, 12, 19 and Feb 2 and 9. Printmaking will start Feb 16 and continue. No class January 26th."
