MONDAYS

limitless landscapes

with Christie

Ages: 2nd - 5th Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:15pm

Dates: 4/1/24-6/24/24*

*No class on 4/22 for Spring Break

*No class on 5/27 for Memorial Day

After getting suggestions from our current Monday students about what the spring class should entail, we've woven together as many of their suggestions as possible to design a class focused on creating observed and imagined landscapes in a multitude of media. We'll do some woodworking, we'll build dioramas, we'll draw and paint on canvas. These landscapes might include animals! Specifically "snails!" And, they may also explore "history's greatest moments." Apologies, but we just couldn't work the two votes for "bacon" into this theme. Perhaps next fall ;)

 

We'll use the materials as our starting point, and also look to the work of artists like Maya Lin, Andy Goldsworthy and Alma Woodsey Thomas as we create.

folk art

with sara

Ages: K-1st Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:00pm

Dates: 4/2/24-6/25/24*

*No class on 4/23 for Spring Break

In this class we will dip our toes into the rich world of folk art as we delve into traditions from around the world and develop some techniques of our own. We’ll take a look at American quilts, Mexican tin ornaments and coconut masks, Japanese kokeshi dolls, and Norwegian rosemaling painting. We will try our hand at creating a utilitarian piece by making pinch pots, we’ll sculpt with cardboard and pieces of wood to create mini furniture, and we will paint familiar scenes and local landscapes that are dear to us. As we discover how different folk art traditions emerged and what they tell us about the people that created them, we’ll discover the things that are important to us and how we can preserve our way of living through art.

This class will investigate the multitude of ways we can create compelling works of art by using and combining just one shape, one line, or one stamp! How can you take a simple shape and make it grow and grow and grow into the most interesting creation? There are endless possibilities and so much fun to be had exploring different solutions! 

We will create and use stamps, stencils, collage and many other materials to learn how to build a beautiful image through repetition.

Spring in New York City is a wonderful thing. Magnolias and cherry blossoms bloom, bulbs emerge from the ground, tulips of all colors pop up on planters. Everyone in the city sighs in relief when the first warm day comes and people flock to the parks. Inspired by spring, this class will create art about flowering, blooming, and growing. We will do printmaking and cyanotypes with leaves, craft paper flowers and garlands, and keep a semester-long log of our favorite spring developments. Drawing, painting, and sculpting—join us as we spring toward summer!

Doors, windows, portals, pathways - many surprises lie just out of sight. In this class we will explore surprise and transformation in art. We will make flaps and popups in our very own book projects. We will disguise treasure chests inside sculptures. We will explore doorways and pathways and openings in our memory and real life, and will paint fantastical worlds in the great beyond. In this class we will draw, paint, sculpt and build stories. Join us to learn how things morph and transform when you look beyond the surface.

  • Do you offer Drop In Classes?
    We do! We offer drop in options for any of our Early Childhood classes that are not full. Drop In registration opens the first day of the semester. Simply click here or on the "Drop In Class" button beside the class you are interested in to register. The class fee includes one adult and one child. You can register for as many drop in classes as you like, there is no limit. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. Advanced registration for drop in classes is required, we cannot accommodate drop-ins at the door/at the time of class.
  • What if my child misses a class?
    We are not able to offer refunds for missed classes unless we cancel a class. Each enrolled family can schedule 2 makeup classes per semester. If you enroll in a class, you'll be given instructions for how to arrange a makeup, should you miss a class. Makeups are permitted as space allows and are on a first come, first served basis. Makeups must be scheduled for the same semester in which you are enrolled. They do not carry over to future semesters. Drop-in classes are not eligible for makeups, credit, or refunds.
  • Does a grownup have to attend classes with my child?
    For our Early Childhood Classes (ages 1.5-4) we do ask that a grownup stay with your child for the duration of class. Our teachers lead each session, but having the child's grownup stay not only helps the child feel comfortable, but also offers adults tools and techniques for continuing art experiences at home.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    We understand that sometimes things come up that make it no longer possible for your child to attend class with us. But we ask that you also understand that late cancellations mean we are unlikely to be able to fill the space in the class, but have already made arrangements for staff and materials. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. You have two options for cancellation of semester-long classes: Option 1: More than 4 weeks prior to the first class? You can receive credit for the full class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Less than 4 weeks prior to the first class but more than 1 week? You can receive 50% credit for the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the start of class are not eligible for credit. Option 2: If it's more than one week prior to the start of class and we are able to fill your spot from the waitlist (if there is one), we will refund you the cost of the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. We cannot give refunds less than one week prior to the start of class. Please note that we only offer full (100%) refunds for a class if WE cancel the class. We are also unable to offer refunds for days or classes missed due to illness or travel. Even if it's COVID. Two makeup classes per semester are available for all of our Early Childhood classes. Drop-in classes are not eligible for credit or refunds.
  • How do the semesters work?
    With the goal of creating classes that are at different price points and therefore accessible to more families, we split the weekday semester into two parts: Semester A and Semester B. You can register for just one, or both (now for a discount!). In response to feedback provided by families, we running our Saturday classes as one longer (8 week) semester. We welcome your feedback on the topic!
  • Can I bring my child's sibling if they are outside the age group?
    Possibly! We want to work with families to create a meaningful art experience for everyone attending our classes. So if you would like to bring a child's sibling who is outside the age group listed in the description, please just email us: info@theartannexbrooklyn.com. If they are within the age group, please just sign them up for a drop in that day.
  • Do you offer discounts or scholarships?
    We fundamentally believe that people of all ages deserve access to high quality arts programming. If you or your child would like to attend one of our classes but cannot for financial reasons, please contact us at info@theartannexbrooklyn.com.
  • What are your COVID safety protocols?
    The Art Annex will be carefully following current CDC and local guidance, and will update our policies as necessary. Masks are now optional for students and their grownups in our Early Childhood Classes. The door will be kept open to ensure air circulation (weather permitting), HEPA air purifier will remain on at all times along with fans to circulate air, and all shared equipment will be cleaned between classes. All of our Early Childhood teachers are vaccinated and boosted.
