MONDAYS

signed, sealed, delivered

with Christie

Ages: 2nd - 5th Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:15pm

Dates: 9/9/24-12/16/24

Join us as we delve into the delights of snail mail through a partnership with other children's art studios across the country. Inspired by Ray Johnson and the New York Correspondence School as well as Marcel Duchamp and the Italian futurists, we'll draw, paint, collage and even type on a typewriter to create small, mail-able works of art that we trade and collaborate on through the mail with our art penpals! We'll also explore areas of student interest as we wait for the USPS to return our collaborations!

TUESDAYS

waterworks

with christie + rosie

Ages: K-1st Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:00pm

Dates: 9/10/24-12/17/24

Join us sailors, pirates, mermaids and fish! Come aboard to journey into the water. In this class we will explore all things water, from the creatures that live underwater, to the boats that float on its surface, to the waves themselves and the river's flow. We will use watercolors and paint to consider movement, pattern and texture, sculpture to figure out how to make something float, and will make prints inspired by Hokusai’s wave. In this class we'll use water both in our art-making and as inspiration for our activities. Dive in with us!

night vision

with rosie

Ages: 2nd - 5th Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:15pm

Dates: 9/11/24-12/18/24

Put on your night vision goggles! We are here to explore what’s out there in the dark! What creatures can be found in the deepest parts of the ocean, in outer space, in our own dreams? What creatures wake up after we go to sleep? In this class we will explore all things night, shining our flashlights on what’s usually left in the dark, from nocturnal animals to otherworldly creatures to glowing night blooming flowers, and even our very own shadows! We will explore shadow puppets, painting and color, monotype printmaking, drawing and building. We might just make something glow in the dark. Join us to observe, invent and imagine!

Ages: K - 1st Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:00pm

Dates: 9/5/24-12/19/24*

*No class 11/28 for Thanksgiving Break

What do we want to make art about? How do we want to make it? These will be the guiding questions for our Thursday afternoons. In this class, we will get to know each other as artists and people. We’ll discover the art skills we already have, and the ones we want to improve. We’ll get a taste of drawing, painting, sculpting and see what we like the most. We will use ourselves as inspiration and explore all the things we like the best through art.

School Pickup $120

FRIDAYS

books, comics and zines!

with sara

Ages: 2nd - 5th Graders

Class Time: 3:15-5:15pm

Dates: 9/6/24-12/20/24*

*No class 11/29 for Thanksgiving Break

In this class, we will explore visual and written narratives by making books, comics, and zines. We will also go beyond drawing and into the wider world of visual storytelling through murals, weaving, and sculptures. We’ll start with the basics and see how far our imaginations take us.

Could we craft a circular story for a circular book? Can we make a comic without any drawings? What’s the zaniest zine we can come up with? Can the medium be the message? The scanner and copy machine will be our allies as we spend our Fridays finding the answers to these questions!

School Pickup $120

  • 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.
