Kids’ Art Classes at School 33

Starting this fall, School 33 is offering art classes for kids! The first two are listed below, but more winter classes are coming soon. School 33 has been providing classes, gallery shows and studio spaces to artists since 1979. They also offer adult classes for both experienced artists and beginners. A complete list of current classes is here.

I think those paper mache pumpkins would be a lot of fun for kids to make (I love a good messy art project). And there is still time to sign up!


Halloween Paper Mache Pumpkins

Saturday, October 29 - 1:00pm - 3:30pm, $25.00

Open to students in grades 1-5

In this workshop students will construct a Halloween pumpkin out of paper mache. Exploring sculpture techniques and construction methods students will use materials such as newspaper, tissue paper, and plastic bags, to create their own pumpkin which they will adorn with an expressive Halloween face. Exploring emotions and how to use facial features to create an expressive face on their pumpkin, students’ pumpkins will stand out from any carved creation.

Feel free to come dressed in your very best Halloween costume, but be warned that we will be getting messy, so also remember to pack that smock or apron. Also be warned that your child’s amazing pumpkin creation will be wet for its journey home, paper mache can take a day or two to dry completely. 


What Makes a Neighborhood a Community?

Saturday, November 5 - 1:00pm - 3:30pm, $25.00

Open to students in grades 1-5

In this workshop students will explore what makes up a neighborhood; the important places, people, and feelings that come from their own neighborhoods. Students will construct artworks inspired by and about these neighborhoods. Exploring ideas of the individual elements that make a neighborhood, to what makes a home and the meaning of community, students will create artworks using a variety of materials and artistic processes.

Students will complete two projects addressing these ideas and exploring the meaning of a community. Looking at what makes a house a home, students will construct a fabric college of their own home based on emotions they have about where they live and how it makes them “feel”. Students will also explore the artistic process of printmaking.
