KIDS@CAM Art Express for children ages 7 to 12 years old takes place most Saturdays from 10:00 am to noon at Coos Art Museum, starting January14, 2017 and extending through June 24, 2017. Mix and match days based on your child’s summer schedule and interests.
Per class fee is $3 for CAM members and $6 for non-members. All materials will be provided.
Each day will have kids looking at a famous piece of art, most of the artists will be historical, but some current, and discussing what makes the piece unique or important, whether it be a specific style, a historical reference, strong use of a specific element of design or an idea. The rest of the time will be spent creating their own art work that is directly related to the piece discussed. Kids will have the chance to explore a wide variety of media from paper cutting to sculpture to painting to collage. All materials will be provided, as well as a nurturing environment that will help grow your child’s love and knowledge of art and mediums.
