From Periwinkle to Picasso: Art for ages 6-12

Picasso Junior (ages 6-8)

This semester we will be focusing on the foundations of painting while using watercolors and acrylics. Materials will be provided by the company (fee is included in tuition). Students will gain an appreciation of art while building a foundation for becoming an artist. Taught by Luke Smith.

Picassos (ages 8-12)

Come celebrate art with Miss Sandy! We will create our masterpieces using acrylic paint, oil pastels, and mixed media to delve into the vision and inspiration of Monet, Picasso, Kandinsky, Klimt, O’Keeffe, Audubon, Lichenstein and Seurat! Each week will include a guided lesson on the week’s theme, but personal style and choice is encouraged as we all put our own personal stamp on our artwork! This class is ONLINE only. Taught by Sandy Churchill.

Supplies Needed for At-Home Learning:

  • 11 x 14 canvas panel boards or heavy watercolor paper to hold paint (at least 8 panels or sheets). These are sold as a pad or a package of panels and are available online at Amazon, and in-store at Ocean State, Michael’s, etc.
  • Acrylic paint in red, blue, yellow, white, brown and black; it would be helpful to complete the rainbow with orange, green, purple, pink and aqua but we can mix colors as well.
  • Flat half-inch paintbrush
  • Round medium paintbrush
  • Small point-tipped detail brush
  • Palette or takeout container tray or styrofoam plates for mixing paints
  • Water cup (washed yogurt cups work really well and are less likely to spill)
  • Set of oil pastels
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Pencil
  • Paper towel each week to blot paintbrush
  • A smile and a positive attitude
  • Set of colored markers (optional but suggested)

These paints can be Folk Art or Apple Barrel or Americana or other brands sold inexpensively in bottles at Walmart, AC Moore, Michael’s and Amazon and in larger tubes at Ocean State Job Lot.

Pandemic Note: At illuminate, we are working hard to carve a path through this pandemic that both follows the CDC guidelines and state regulations while also allowing students to take classes, create, collaborate, and shine. Click here to read a summary of what this will look like. We are revising these for the next semester as the pandemic continues to evolve. Thank you!

Tuition policies for 2020-2021: this year, due to the pandemic, we will be working with a new fee and payment schedule. Tuition is $5 per half hour (so most classes are $10/hour). You will be billed monthly for each month of classes held – that way, if we end up in lockdown again, it will be easier for us to manage refunds. Additional fees for class materials are listed on the class pages (and in their descriptions). Normally, we do not offer refunds after the first two weeks of classes, but because we are in a pandemic, we will be offering refunds for any classes missed due to covid (but not for classes that met successfully or have a livestream option).
