PORT ANGELES — In the meadow at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, the “Monday’s Child” series of art classes is under way and open to youngsters in first through sixth grade.
The sessions are from
1 p.m. until 3 p.m. each Monday through August’s end and cost $10 if participants register by the Friday before the class.
Alternatively, students can come the day of the workshop and pay $12.
Advance sign-ups are strongly encouraged since at least 10 students are needed to cover expenses.
At the same time, the sessions won’t be allowed to grow too large; the maximum number of students in each is 25.
The lineup of classes is:
— Monday — Rosie Sharpe leads a “Paste-Paper Painting” workshop, with students using a special painting technique to create handmade books with fanciful covers.
— July 23 — A “Map the Body” class with Brenda Newman will teach students how to correctly draw the human face and form.
— July 30 — In “Ways of Watercolor,” students will explore basic watercolor painting and color mixing with instructor Lucy Chambers.
— Aug. 6 — In a collage class, youngsters will learn the principles of composition and practice developing visual ideas to make mixed-media collages. Lincoln High School art teacher and fine artist Melissa Klein is the instructor.
— Aug. 13 — “Discovering Texture” will have students working with clay and natural objects to make a textured tile. Instructor Anna Wiancko Chasman will kiln-fire the tiles and have them ready for pickup Aug. 22.
— Aug. 20 — “Rhythm & Movement in Art” with Margaret and Torrey Jakubcin will have kids exploring ways to translate physical movement into painting.
— Aug. 27 — In “Drawing in Perspective,” artist-teacher Torrey Jakubcin will guide kids as they learn to draw and decorate a dream bedroom using the principles of one-point perspective.
These classes take place either in the art park around the fine arts center if weather permits or inside the Webster House gallery at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.
