ONSITE: Nature + Recycled Art (Ages 6-8)
Use recycled materials to create art inspired by nature! Reducing waste and being innovative with our materials can be a fun way to explore our creativity. We will create art using natural materials (such as sun prints, rock painting or shell pets), use air dry clay to make trinket dishes or pendants, and make hanging and table top sculptures using recycled materials. We will finish the week with a mixed media painting inspired by flowers!
- This is an On-site course. Students must follow social distancing protocols and wear masks at all times. For more info visit visarts.org.
About the Instructor
As a child, art gave me confidence, focus, and motivation in school. I spent my free time playing in the woods, drawing, and taking care of my many pets – which included several cats and even a small flock of sheep. My artwork today is filled with inspiration from these experiences, especially nature and animals.
I enjoy sharing my talents with others; to empower the struggling student, include the exceptional, and inspire anyone with an interest in creating. I have a BFA in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I previously worked as an elementary art teacher in Charles City County. Following the birth of my 2 lovely daughters, my focus changed to Early Childhood Education. I earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education from John Tyler Community College and am currently a lead teacher at a play-based preschool in Bon Air where my days are filled with art, music, and fun with the 3-4 year olds in my class.See More Classes By Instructor
