Description

This class is an excellent way to introduce young artists to different forms of artistic expression and strengthen their existing foundations, all while having fun! Working in drawing, painting, and sculpture projects allows for growth in a variety of areas and exposure to a wide range of techniques.

About the Kindergarten Art Sampler Curriculum: The Art Sampler curriculum covers 3 years for this age group.  While projects in this curriculum are rarely repeated over the 3 years, Ms Truk rotates the focus through the years to build on different concepts which will help your child understand and learn how to apply design principles like shapes and colors properly while working on fine motor skills.  Understanding colors and shapes are critical skills are critical to learning; when children learn to recognize similarities and differences between colors and shapes, they are using the same skills required to recognize the differences between letters and numbers. Students work towards a Certificate of Achievement after 3 completed Art Sampler sessions with Ms. Turk.


About the Teaching Artist: Katie Truk received her BFA from Alfred University. She has been teaching multi-media classes to children and adults of all ages and levels since 2001 through personal lessons, visiting artist grants, and in places such as Creative Hands in Madison, Let’s Create in Boonton, Messy Artist in South Orange and the Summit Art Center. In her studio, the medium of choice is pantyhose. She combines the translucent and sensual nature of pantyhose and the rigidity of wire to create sculptures of complex depth and personality. These sculptures have been featured around the tri-state area.
