Kids’ Studio Time

Brazosport Art League offers a free art class each month for younger (8-12 years) children*.  It is designed to give the student and their guardian experiences with

  • a variety of art mediums
  • art styles and techniques
  • art history and art in some cultures
  • one-on-one time with a guardian, working on a project

It is not…..

  • intended to be art lessons in the conventional sense.  We will not be specifically teaching drawing shapes, animals, etc. through repetition.  However, there will be simple examples shown that a child can follow to use in class and practice thereafter.
  • child care or babysitting.  With this age group, and only 1-2 instructors, we expect an adult family member or guardian to stay with the student, understand technical instructions, and be prepared to lead the child independently.  However, the art produced is meant to be the child’s work.

* Elementary teachers have advised that by 8 years of age most kids will pay attention and follow directions.  If your child is well-behaved and curious, then we would consider making an exception.
