For ages 4-6: Cosmic Creativity

Artists, astronauts, and astronomers all have one thing in common — they are creative thinkers! With the stars and planets as your guide, you’ll explore the cosmos to create art that is out of this world!

Can’t get to class until 3:30? Not a problem! This year, the first 15 minutes of all ArtHaus after school programs will consist of  supervised open studio time during which students can freely study, sketch, eat snack, or dive into self-directed projects. Instruction will not begin until 3:30pm, giving out-of-town families or those walking from Carrie Lee more time to get to ArtHaus.

On the same token, let us know if you need to schedule a late pickup. We realize that it may be difficult to pickup from ArtHaus at 5pm. If our child needs to stay with us until 5:15, we’ll make sure our teachers and assistants are aware. Look for new arrival and pickup time questions when checking out online.

For ages 4-6: Animal Planet

Where does a polar bear sleep? What does a kangaroo eat? Can birds fly in the rain? Answer these questions and more while tackling art projects that will explore animals of all kinds from across the globe.

Finding inspiration from a different book each week, you’ll spend 6-weeks tying together words and pictures to tell stories and create in that author/illustrator’s unique style. Create altered book pages, illustrate with paper and scissors, make your own bookmarks & bookends, and more to explore your love of literature.
