Visual Art Programs

Our visual art program is as diverse as the people we serve. We meet with you, our community partner, to decide which classes would be best based on the interests of your participants and the goals you have. Many of our classes incorporate social-emotional learning concepts. Here are some themes we can develop with your students:

Art Smarts

Small groups of children participate in art projects while engaging in meaningful conversations.
Classes will combine a variety of techniques in acting, movement, voice, and character creation in order to guide students with writing, staging, and performing their own stories. Grades: 2nd and up

Murals

This class will bring creativity, imagination, and color to a space. Youth will paint murals on walls or on boards that can be hung later.
School/Camp/Site staff will be consulted as to any preferred themes. Youth will study the styles of famous and not-as-famous artists for inspiration and guidance. A final project will be an individual, smaller project for the student to take home and share. Grades: 4 th and up

Multicultural Art Explorers

“I worked with a kindergartener who had a lot of tantrums: crying, crawling on the floor, anger, shutting down. One day there were few students in the class and we had the chance to work one on one for a while; She was like a different kid. We painted together (collaboratively, and then separately side by side). She mixed colors, had control over her environment, and enjoyed the session. She asked for more paper and paint so she could keep going, which of course I obliged. She was proud of her new colors and the visual story she created, and wanted to show others. This student was happy when the other children and staff gave her attention and praise.” -BSMA Visual Arts Instructor
