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, paper arts, etc.

The schedule of classes is as follows:

Monday 1:30 to 3:00 p.m., Home School 8-15-year-olds

Monday 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Elementary 7-12-year-olds

Tuesday 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., Preschool 3-5-year-olds

Tuesday 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., Elementary 5-8-year-olds

Wednesday 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., Preschool 3-5-year-olds

Wednesday 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Elementary 5-8-year-olds

Thursday 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Elementary 7-12-year-olds

Thursday 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., Middle School 5-8th grades

Friday 3:30 to 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.

January students will be learning about the period of Post-Impressionism and a bit of history about that time. Artists like van Gogh, Cézanne, and Seurat will be discussed. Students will be using their drawing skills and painting skills this month with still life work. The element of art referred to as “space” will be the focus this month, as children learn how the masters of the post-impressionism movement used this concept, and apply it to their own work.
