Community Youth Art Program: Animals in Action!
April 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Sunday, repeating until April 14, 2019
The Western Illinois University Community Art Program will be presented on Sundays from March 24 – April 14 at the West Central Illinois Arts Center and in Garwood Hall on the WIU campus. The free program is for students in first through eighth grades. Classes will be held from 1 – 2:30 p.m. and from 3 – 4:30 p.m.
Third and fourth grade: Through creating sculptures, students will explore what animals do, how they move and where they live. Over the course of four class sessions, students will design an animal (real or imagined) out of recyclable materials, learn a plaster wrapping technique to strengthen their sculpture, use painting techniques to fabricate the texture of the creature and construct their animal’s habitat (real or imagined).
To pre-register for the class, contact Sarah Warner at SM-Warner@wiu.edu.
