Discover a variety of classes taught by accomplished local artists who are excited to share their expertise with young people. Classes usually meet for four consecutive weeks and class themes and techniques vary widely, from portraiture to jewelry making.
Lux’s in-depth, after-school art program for young artists ages 5-12 gives kids the opportunity to interact deeply and playfully with work by the current artist-in-residence. Each four-week session corresponds to the Lux residency schedule and is based on the ideas, style, and technique of the artist residing at Lux.
Working with the education staff's teaching artists and inspired by trends in contemporary art, students will work on a variety of art projects both independently and collaboratively as part of the camp program. Projects will include drawing, painting and sculpture. Space is limited. Be sure to register early!
Ages 8–11 Youth Lab is an open studio course organized to support students through the process of art-making from initial concept to final execution. Rather than having projects planned by an instructor, a trained and experienced visual artist will help students translate meaningful topics and themes into unique works of art. Students will be challenged to experiment with a variety of mediums including painting, collage, and sculpture. Finished artwork will be exhibited in a student showcase at the end of the course.
