The Chesterton Art Center is offering monthly children’s art classes throughout the school year. Classes are designed for preschool, elementary, home school, middle school, and high school ages.  Students of all ages will actively participate in learning, while studying one of the major movements of modern art history each month.

All classes will include drawing throughout the month in some form. Students will be exposed to a mix of mediums, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage, drawing, weaving, and paper arts.

The schedule of classes is as follows:

  • Monday, 1:30-3:00 p.m., Home School 8-15 year-olds
  • Monday, 3:30-5:00 p.m., Elementary 7-12 year-olds
  • Tuesday, 1:00-2:00 p.m., Preschool 3-5 year-olds
  • Tuesday, 4:00-5:30 p.m., Elementary 5-8 year-olds
  • Wednesday, 1:00-2:00 p.m., Preschool 3-5 year-olds
  • Wednesday, 3:30-5:00 p.m., Elementary 5-8 year-olds
  • Thursday, 3:30-5:00 p.m., Elementary 7-12 year-olds
  • Thursday, 5:30-7:00 p.m., Middle School 5-8th grades
  • Friday, 3:30-5:00 p.m., High School 9-12th grades

Tuition is $90 per month for high school, middle school, elementary, and home school students (the member rate is $70), and $75 for preschool students (the member rate is $55). Families must be current members of the Chesterton Art Center to receive the member rate. Supplies and a nut-free snack are included. Students must register and pay before the first class. A $20 fee will be added to any late payments made after the 10th of each month.

March students will move into the 20th century on the modern art timeline with a focus on surrealism. Children’s imaginations will be stretched as they study the work of Dali, Ernst, and Magritte.
