Small Artists on the Hill - A Partnership Program with Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre and the Township of Champlain
We are pleased to announce that the Township of Champlain and the Arbor Gallery have partnered to deliver a youth art program at the Vankleek Hill Community Centre (36 Mill street).
Children need a chance to shine in many ways. We see the arts as an outlet for children and youth to express themselves, be creative, relieve stress and just to enjoy themselves. Small Artists on the Hill's mission is to provide relevant subject matter to spark interest in children and youth, never losing sight that children learn best when they are engaged and entertained.
The program will offer five - six week sessions for children ages 5 to 13 years old. The last class of each session will be an art exhibit, where the students can showcase their art to friends and family.
We need artists to help develop and deliver the following sessions:
Cartoon drawing, painting, mixed media, recycled art, intro to drawing and representational drawing. Keep in mind these are suggestions, if you have ideas of what you would like to propose please do so.
Here are the time frame availabilities:
Each session will be available on Tuesdays from 6 - 7 PM for 5 -8 years of age and 7:15 - 8:15PM for ages 9 - 13 years of age.
The class will be one hour long, once a week. Each session will run for 5 classes and the 6 class will be an opportunity to exhibit the class work and invite parents and friends to come see the projects.
