RAHWAY – Registration is now open for Kids’ Summer Art Workshops at Arts Guild New Jersey (formerly The Arts Guild of Rahway). The program is offered as five-day art workshops for children ages 7 – 12 in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking. Each class runs for 90 minutes daily, Monday – Friday. The fee for one five-day class is $50. Children may take up to four classes per session. There are four sessions: July 19 – July 23, July 26 – July 30, August 2 – August 6, and August 9 – August 13.
These workshops are a great way to introduce your child to thinking creatively and further their interest in the visual arts. Drawing is an essential part of art making and is the basis for many other forms of art, such as painting and printmaking. The Drawing workshop is a great place for any child to start. In the Painting workshop, not only do children paint from observation and photographed images, but kids also learn the skill of color mixing and design. Creating three dimensional works, in our Sculpture workshop is a very different and wonderful hands-on experience. Enrolled students will work with many different materials such as wood, cardboard and clay. In the Printmaking workshop, students will make multiples from their original images by creating monoprints and collographs.
The summer art workshops are designed to be affordable to many families despite the difficult economy. Classes are taught by competent, experienced instructors in a stimulating and educational setting, and all materials are provided.
“Arts Guild New Jersey was established as a resource to residents of the region and we strive to make our services affordable for as many people as possible,” says Lawrence Cappiello, the executive director of the organization. “We offer art classes and workshops at a reasonable cost and other programs, like our annual series of art exhibits, which are free to the public. Arts Guild New Jersey is known throughout the region for presenting programs of the highest quality.”
