Community Programs

After-school arts enrichment classes for Bellingham elementary schools and community have been ongoing since 2008.   Basic skills and techniques are taught and practiced with activities that spark our intuitive nature and creativity. Sessions begin with open-ended activities that tie into the elements of art such as line, shape, color and more. Representing subjects from nature, ourselves and our interests through drawing, painting and ceramics is an integral part of the program.

Movement or a simple meditation idea        may be integrated into classes. A  movement activity may be used to introduce an element of art like line or shape. Noticing our breath and body in the present moment may reduce stress and enhance focus during class. Programs are tailored to the age, space and needs of the group.  A flexible structure nurtures child-led choices through art.

 

 

“My daughter really enjoyed LuciaArts classes and the beautiful art she created is all over our house brightening almost every room!”

In the process of creating art we communicate, play, make changes, problem solve, express and learn about ourselves.
