After School/ Homeschool Classes 2017/18

Winter/ Spring 2017/18 Session- 5 week courses

 

After-school/ Homeschool Classes are designed to offer students a unique selection of art courses that cannot be found anywhere else in Anne Arundel County. Courses offered for the Winter/ Spring of 2017/18 include Glassblowing, Metal Casting, Glass Flameworking, and more! All courses will be fun, challenging, and very rewarding.

In culmination of a five-week art session, students will host a final critique for family and friends. Art students can share the pieces they made in class and answer questions about their ideas, process, and their art experience as a whole. This a wonderful opportunity for parents to see all the hard work that the students have been doing in class and for students to express themselves, share concepts, and find confidence in speaking about the art process. Light food and beverages will be served and photographs will be taken of students and their artworks. 

Homeschool students are welcome in all of our after-school classes and evening classes. Pictures from classes for homeschool portfolios are available at the end of each course. We take many photos of students enjoying the art process and working together on their art projects so students can share the experience with others.
