          Art Club: This club is offered by a not for profit group. The class will be taught by IB High School Students from Marshall High School. There will be adult supervision at all club meetings; however, instruction will come from the high school students. All volunteer adult supervisors will go through the same background check process as our for profit providers. As a result, this club is only charging a small fee to cover the cost of art supplies. Over the course of these 8 classes, students will creating multiple pieces of art and will then choose one work to display at an internal art show at the end of the program. Each class will be dedicated to develop techniques with a new material. The first two classes will be the basic foundation for the rest of the sessions; afterwards, students will be able to choose the medium of their final art piece for the showcase from the following options: Colored pencils - shading techniques, color layeringInk - markers, brush pens, line artSoft & oil pastels - blending techniques, complementary colorsWatercolor - brush techniques, layering (will last for more than one class in order to teach students proper techniques)Collages & mixed media - allows students to use their favorite previous materials to produce a larger piece. - Thursday Afternoons, Grades 2-6
