Spring Cycle Art Classes with Ms. Seelhoff

Liz Seelhoff has been teaching cooking classes and art classes with the afterschool program for over twenty years. This winter she is offering two art classes online via zoom. See below for descriptions and updates and links.

Fun with Art Around NYC–Mondays 2:30 to 3:30

If you’re curious about sculptures and paintings found around Manhattan, join us as we learn about work created by various modern artists.
In this live Zoom class, we’ll first look at photos, read stories about art, and then create our own paintings, drawings, and sculptures. We’ll explore line, color, shape, and texture. Students will create torn-paper collages, sketch with colored pencils, fold and twist paper to make three-dimensional sculptures, and paint with large watercolor tempera cakes—to name a few! Creativity and fun encouraged! A suggested list of art materials to have on-hand will be emailed to your family before class begins. Details about each piece of artwork will be shared with families throughout the term.

Color and Shape in Modern Art–Tuesday and Wednesday 2:30 to 3:30

Have you ever wondered about how the color green is created? What about purple?
Join us in this live Zoom class as we create our own secondary colors and beautiful paintings. We will study the work of Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky, two abstract painters. We begin the term by learning about primary and secondary colors and the color wheel. We’ll have fun painting with watercolors, drawing with crayons and colored pencils, as well as creating collages using bright- colored construction paper.
We’ll look for shapes and patterns in each collage and painting that we design. We will learn about the artist’s studios and think about what we would want to design our own spaces to paint and draw in at home. Students will relax and listen to stories as we explore children’s books introducing us to this topic. Mixing colors is a rewarding magical process. And fun! We hope that you will join us! A list of suggested materials will be emailed to you before class begins.
