Collage and Decoupage

THURSDAYS
GRADES K-8
Wow – two very fancy words…  What do they mean?  In the collage section of the course we will create a fabulous piece of original art on real canvas using nothing but acrylic paint and clippings from magazines and newspapers.  You will be amazed what you can create using little bits and pieces of colored paper and arranging them to form a larger image – your art piece!  During our decoupage segment we will be decorating useful every-day items such as holiday ornaments, picture frames, and boxes also using images on paper and then preserving them with acrylic, so you can enjoy them for a long time to come! And you will never have to hear not to use so much glue – the instructor will tell you to use more!  
I wouldn’t miss this one, if I were you!

Imagination Yoga

THURSDAYS
GRADES K-5
Imagination Yoga is a movement, a platform to inspire real change in the lives of our children. Not only is it a fun and effective yoga class for kids it is also our opportunity to teach them concepts like; compassion, concentration, relaxation and something we call being ‘Boldly kind’. Being a boldly kind person is a person that says “hello” to the new kid at school, a person that stands up for what is right, a person that uses their imagination like a tool carving out a space for peace and joy.
