After-school Art Classes
Monday or Thursday afternoons
4:00- 5:30PM
Red Panda Art Studio at WAS Gallery
5110 Ridgefield Rd, Bethesda, MD
8 week sessions

Monday afternoon classes (FULL) will be going back to the beginning-- well, the beginning of recorded art that is- cave painting, this session! Each class will focus on a different artistic period or movement taking us from the prehistoric to pop art- and introducing impressionism, surrealism, expressionism, and cubism along the way. Class will be structured to include a very child led approach to the study of art history. We will learn about famous artists and try out different techniques in each class. We will focus on a process based approach that will allow for lots of hands on exploration.

This session, Thursday afternoon classes (FULL) will be traveling around the world- without leaving the studio. Each week, we will experience art and culture from a different country. We will introduce famous and notable artists, as well as art periods, techniques, and symbols that influence artists.

The typical class includes introductory stations related to the day's theme, a related kid's book, and a main project. Monday afternoon classes are recommended for ages 3 to 7, younger and older siblings welcome on a case-by-case basis. Thursday afternoon class is recommended for ages 4 to 8. Class is drop-off welcome.
