Art After School with MiMi

These art classes are based on a classical art education. Classes include drawing with graphite, charcoal, colored pencils, pastel, watercolors, acrylics, mixed medium, clay, wire, print medium and handmade paper. Advanced students will be encouraged to build on their desired medium and work more independently with the teacher acting as more of a mentor and facilitator. New and intermediate students will watch demonstrations and have instruction with specific goals for learning the basics of composition and design within each discipline. This class will foster a well-rounded familiarity in the different disciplines offered. "Process learning" will be promoted in this class with the hope of students desiring to work freely and happily toward producing works of art they are proud of. Mimi's goal is each student trying and learning new skills and having fun with art experimentation. You will learn about Oklahoma, American and world artists, past and present, who have worked in the various mediums we study. Students are required to bring to class a PORTFOLIO in which to store their art. They need a small sketchbook, with a zip lock bag containing a pencil, sharpener and eraser. Instructor: MiMi Mason

Mondays: 4:45-6:15 (Ages: 7-15)
January 9 – May 8 Please call for late enrollment
