Sisters Roxy and Quinn Frey work on their online art class together through the Chesterton Art Center.

The Chesterton Art Center is offering monthly children’s art classes taught by Jennifer Aitchison throughout the school year. The art center will be Zooming live virtual classes beginning in September. On-site classes may be added later when it is safe to do so.

All materials are included in the tuition and will be picked up from the Art Center once at the beginning of each month. 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, and more. 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 8-12-year-olds
  • Tuesday 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., Preschool & Kindergarten 3-5-year-olds
  • Tuesday 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., Elementary 5-8-year-olds
  • Wednesday 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Elementary 5-8-year-olds
  • Thursday 1:30 to 3:00 p.m., Ages 8-15-year-olds
  • Thursday 3:30-5:00 p.m., Middle School 5th-8th grades
  • Thursday 5:30-7:00 p.m., Teens 13-18 years old

Tuition is $90 per month for high school, middle school, elementary, and homeschooled students (member rate is $70), and $75 for preschool and kindergarten students (member rate is $55). Preschoolers will need assistance from someone at home. Families must be current members of the Chesterton Art Center to receive the member rate.

The supply pick-up date is Sept. 3 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. outside the Chesterton Art Center. Miss Jen will be available at the pick-up for any questions or concerns. For any who are unable to pick up at that time, they will need to stop by the art center during regular business hours. Any supplies left from the month are kept by the student.

Students must register and pay before the first class.

September classes begin on Sept. 8. To register stop in, call, or visit the website at or
