Saturday Art School

Children in second or third grade are warmly invited to join the Indiana University Saturday Art School Program for Spring 2017.

This program provides an opportunity for children to experience visual arts instruction in supportive, small group settings. Activities involve basic artistic processes and are designed around a new theme each term. The program is coordinated by the IU Art Education Program and courses are taught by graduate and undergraduate students in our Teacher Education Program.

Classes take place over seven Saturdays and culminate in an open house and exhibition on the 8th week. All classes meet in the W.W. Wright Education Building, 201 N. Rose Avenue. Parking is available in the Jordan Ave. Parking Garage adjacent to the building.

Pre-registration is urged as space is limited. We'll be accepting enrollment until February 3, so even if your student misses the first class he/she can start on February 4. Scholarships are available. Please contact Sara Sturgeon at slsturge@indiana.edu or 812-856-8129 for more information.

Exploring Spanish Through Art – Grades 2 and 3

Children in grades 2 – 3 have the unique opportunity to participate in a program in which they explore a range of visual artmaking materials and techniques while learning simple Spanish. Vocabulary will include expressions for courtesy as well as the names of objects, actions and materials used for creating art. Introducing a foreign language to children at an early age can help them become more confident and fluent communicators. Children will integrate Spanish with art projects based on people.

No Spanish knowledge is expected or required. The program will be taught by two graduate students in the School of Education, one being a native Spanish speaker and the other an Art Education Major. During the program students will also be interacting with World Language teacher candidates who will be assisting with language learning and practice. For questions about this course, please contact Thereza Bastos at mbastos@indiana.edu
