Art Classes

I have renewed my contract with a great local art studio that caters to kids to teach Earth Art classes for children 4-10 years in age. Please come check us out and share with your friends who are in the Greater Atlanta and Cobb County areas!

And thank you Atlanta Insider for including us on your list of the 22 Best Atlanta Homeschool Days and Programs. We are truly honored! 

About: Our Earth Art classes include elements of earth science, art history, artistic skill and technique building, while getting to use quality art materials and natural items hand selected straight from the outdoors. Our focus is on learning where our materials are coming from and how to use them to create, classical art concepts and techniques, and the process of creating art from the heart.

While students will sometimes get to take home finished pieces, not all classes are centered on a take-home (wall-ready) piece, but students will always get to take home something from the class whether it’s a new material, practice sheets or sketches, or a finished picture.

These classes are designed so that you can either choose to drop into one when it fits into your schedule, OR so that you can continue to build skills on top of each other by attending them all. A different material or concept will be introduced in each class, and each seasonal session will revolve around a designated theme. If you plan on attending more than one class, we recommend bringing a sketchbook each week.

This is a drop-off style class geared towards children ages 4-10 years old. (Adults may sit and read at the tables outside of the studio inside Champion Kids or take siblings to Open Play in one of the gyms on-site.)

Dates and topics: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 10:30am (*new class time for winter). Classes are 1-hour long. Please arrive 5 minutes early to fill out paperwork at your first class. Topics are subject to change. Our winter session theme is: Color. 

January 4th- Primary and secondary colors (color mixing, feet painting)
