Art Club Joanne Gianfrancesco –

Art Club is an opportunity for students to try new mediums and explore their creative side. What’s the difference between Art Club and Art Class? In Art Class, we go by a set lesson plan where all the students work on a similar project created by using the Core Content Standards. Whereas, Art Club, for older students (3rd to 8th) have the ability to choose what they would like to do. Whether it is simple drawing, painting (tempera and/or acrylic), photography, clay making, bracelet making (colored string), Rainbow Loom, etc.

For the Little Ones (Pre-K 3 to Kindergarten) 
Students focus mainly on projects that help with their motor skills. Working with Model Magic, cutting, simple painting projects, all help the kids with both their fine and gross motor skills while doing a fun activity. For students in 1st and 2nd, who are in between independence and dependence, they are given set projects but have the opportunity to change things around and make it their own. The main purpose for Art Club is to allow the kids to have fun while figuring out who they are and what they like.
