Children in our community are one of our biggest priorities at the Shiawassee Arts Center (SAC). We offer a variety of classes and workshops for grade school students after school, homeschoolers, scouts, church groups, and 4-H Clubs. Classes can be arranged to earn badges or just for the students’ enjoyment and artistic enrichment.
Our simple, hands-on multi-media classes vary from painting and drawing to mosaics and pottery. Purchase an annual SAC membership for your child ($20) or the entire family ($50) and receive discounts on classes. If you would like to arrange a class for your group, please contact us.
Thursday after-school classes run from 4pm – 5:30pm.
Check out our upcoming youth classes below.
Create an acrylic painting of a hometown landmark, from the Curwood Castle to Willman Field or maybe even Cone Zone! Paintings will be on display at the Shiawassee Arts Center during ArtWalk on Saturday, September 14th 11-4pm.
Aye…September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and to celebrate, we’ll sail to Treasure Island where young buccaneers can design their very own pirate ships using watercolors. Arrr!
Play in clay and create 2 functional dinnerware pieces! Pottery will need to be glazed on October 17th and fired once more to be completed.
Be Dr. Frankenstein for a day and construct a monster face pot using clay! Creations will need to be glazed on October 17th and fired once more to come alive.
Learn about perspective as you paint a colorful landscape of a farmer’s field – great quilts of golden, brown and green squares held together by the thick, green stitching of hedgerows – a popular subject for many artists.
Put the finishing touches on clay pieces created in the September 26th Pottery on the Wheel class and/or the October 3rd Monster Face Pots class. Pieces will be fired once more and available to pick up at the October 24th Pumpkin Painting Class. Also, students who missed glazing at summer art camp, are welcome to join in this session.
