Ages 7 and up. In this class, study the history of art starting with the cave painters. Each class will focus on a different period of art, and will include a discussion of history of the time, famous artists, their materials, methods and artwork and maybe even the science behind some of their work. Homeschoolers will complete an art project each class in the style of the period covered. Instruction in drawing, painting, ceramics and sculpture will be covered. This course will continue throughout the winter/spring and will progress chronologically to the modern day.

Writers Workshop
Kathy Hubbard
Thursdays, September 27 – December 6
1:00 – 3:00 pm $100
Ages 8 and up. Creative Writing is fun teaches children the importance of spelling, grammar and sentence construction. Each class will begin with the reading of exemplary children’s literature to allow the students to hear good writing while opening up their imaginations. Using this literature as a guide, students will learn about the mechanics of writing through the creation, development and revision of his or her own short stories. During the fall session, children will have the opportunity to create their own fairy tale, and write a biographical story. For a final project, students will choose, revise and then illustrate her or his best work to be part of our class “literary journal”.
Looking ahead: This class will continue in our winter session when we will focus on poetry.
