For early winter 2022, Muckykids Art Studio offers a variety of classes for kids aged 3 through 12 years. Class series consist of six weekly sessions. Sessions run anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, as noted in the class descriptions. The 3-4 year-old classes are parent-child: the parent or caregiver stays and participates with the child. All other age groups are drop-off classes. The early winter 2022 semester starts January 10. All classes run for six weeks. Please note that Monday classes will end February 28 to account for two Monday closures.

Art Explorations: Print and Sculpt (Ages 3-4) – 1 hr x 6 weeks
In this class parent and child will be encouraged to engage, explore, and experiment together. The focus this semester will be on sculpting with a wide variety of craft supplies and experimentation with printmaking. The process of printmaking is very dynamic and can lead to exciting surprises and colorful results. In addition to being just plain fun (!) sculpture engages fine motor development, eye hand coordination and early concepts of 3D vs. 2D. Throughout the semester the focus will be on process over product; children at this age are very process oriented and this class is designed to nurture and encourage their art explorations. Enrollment limited to 7 per section.

Sculpture and Print (Ages 4-5) – 1.5 hrs x 6 weeks
In this class we will have fun with open-ended approaches to printmaking and sculpture, as well as more step-by-step techniques. With sculpture, we will explore 2D vs 3D by making ‘flat’ pictures of our sculptures and vice versa! With the printmaking portion of the class we will build and carve printing plates, draw into our prints, plus play with mono printing – a very dynamic process! Enrollment limited to 6 children per section.

Science Toys (Ages 6-8) – 2 hrs x 6 weeks
Symmetry sculptures, catapults, spinning patterns, solar systems on a string, reflection drawings, and more!! Join us in a class that celebrates the convergence of science and art. The activities will be accompanied with discussions of the science concepts they represent. Most projects will be the building of toys or the making of art, though some will be play based only… such as color mixing with stinky potions, shadow shapes, and the collaborative construction of a marble run on the studio wall. Enrollment limited to 7 per section.

Paper Engineering (Ages 9-12) – 2 hrs x 6 weeks
Printmaking combined with paper engineering will lead this class to some super cool results! We will print patterned papers to use in origami. We will use “nets” (2D patterns) to score and fold into boxes, pyramids & sculptures. Paper-circuit lanterns, pop-ups, a paper airplane launcher, pinwheels, and dip-dying paper will also factor into this dynamic class. Enrollment limited to 6 per section.
