Art Explorations (Ages 3+4) – 1 hr. x 8 weeks

We’ll play with color mixing, talk about line quality, make prints, craft with nature, sculpt, build dioramas and more, but the focus will be on process over product; children at this age are very process oriented and this class is designed to nurture and encourage their art explorations.

Creative Programming (Ages 8-10) – 1.25 hr. x 8 weeks
It’s “Tech Tuesday” at Muckykids! Join us for a hands-on introduction to creative computer programming. We will use the wonderful kid-friendly programming environment Scratch* to make interactive art, animations, stories and more. In this art-focused introduction to programming, we will explore fundamental computer programming techniques and concepts that underpin the future of STEM education, while helping the kids learn to see computers as creative tools to expand their own abilities.

No prior experience with Scratch or programming is needed, but kids should have general familiarity with computer use (keyboard and mouse). Laptops will be provided by Muckykids for use during class. Class size will be very small. Ages 8-10.

* Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. See http://scratch.mit.edu.
