What's Included

Aside from being a lot of fun, this class takes the pressure off of drawing any specific objects. If your child loves paint and color, then he or she will love the fantastic projects that TPS grandparent and professional artist Susan Ross Stevens has planned for the Painting & Collage club! Students will spend the first classes creating their own abstract art. They will experiment with paint, gouache, acrylic, and watercolors using different types of brushes, papers, and application techniques, such as using straws to blow paint around, using gravity to drip paint, and shaking our paint brushes to spray the paint. When the painting phase is complete, students cut apart their work to create swatches of different sizes. Then the swatches are arranged into designs much like designing a patchwork quilt. Once the students are happy with their paper placements, they will glue their swatches in place to create their own color-rich collages. (Please note: Students will need to bring a smock or an old t-shirt to the first class. This club does not start until October 31. If your child is not already an ASEP participant, he or she may attend ASEP before this club begins for a modest additional fee.)
