The Art Club is for children going in the 1st through 6th grade. Members study the works of famous artists and different forms of art and create works of art that illustrate the work.
The Art Club is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. With the funding from this grant, the Art Club is able to offer art classes facilitated by local artists. On February 6th, Courtney Mealy, Assistant Director of Arts Programming for Pitt-Bradford, will talk about the work of Wassily Kandinsky, Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first recognized purely abstract works They will create their own abstract painting using watercolor and acrylic paints and will have the opportunity to continue to work on their paintings on the 13th. On February 20, Courtney will introduce art club members to Jean-Michel Basquiat, an American artist who used a variety of layered drawings and painting techniques to tell a story. They will use poetry, drawing and painting to create their own mixed media self-portraits in his style. They will finish their projects the following week.
Spacing is limited to 16 participants and preregistration is required to participate. The program is free and open to the public.
