Saturday Art School

Saturday Art School

Saturday Art School 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. Indiana University students who are training as Visual Art Education Specialists for school and community settings teach the courses.

The Fall 2020 Saturday Art School will provide both in-person (on Campus) AND online classes that meet simultaneously via Zoom. Parents and Guardians should register children in one OR the other format for the entire session.

We will offer three courses, one each for children in Grades 1-2; Grades 3-4  and Grades 5-6.

The cost to attend is $35. All materials are included with the cost of registration and scholarships are available. Pre-registration is urged as classes are small and fill quickly.

Early pre-registration is urged as classes are very small and will fill quickly.

Classes will meet on Saturdays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. In-person classes will meet on the third floor of the Wright Education Building. The class dates for the Fall 2020 session are as follows:

  • October 3
  • October 10
  • October 17
  • October 24
  • October 31
  • November 7

If the IU campus shifts to fully online classes, all Saturday Art School Classes will need to shift as well.

Art Supplies will be provided for face-to-face classes, however families will need to provide some supplies for children participating by Zoom. Further supply information will be provided upon registration.

There will be a maximum of 5 children and 4 adults in each classroom at any given time, and social distancing will be in effect. IU has increased cleaning protocols in place, and Saturday School instructors will complete additional surface cleaning and disinfecting prior to each class.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, IU requires that all persons, both children and adults, wear facemasks at all times when on campus. All children participating in Saturday Art School classes in-person will be given temperature checks prior to the 10 a.m. class start and then escorted to their classrooms by their teachers. Parents will not be permitted to accompany children to classrooms. Children can be picked up again in the Atrium at 11:30 a.m. Parents or guardians picking up or dropping off children will be asked to show ID.

We thank you for helping us maintain additional precautions during this difficult time.

Saturday Art School is part of the IU School of Education Teacher Education Program. Sessions are taught by Art Education students and supervised by Dr. Lara Lackey.
