Looking for a creative outlet for your child? LEAF is pleased to offer summer art classes for children ages 4-6 and 7-12. The classes are held at the LEAF Education Center and taught by artist Julia Horan. (adult accompaniment is not required)

Each class features a new project and theme. Class times are 10:30-11:30AM for ages 4-6 and 12:30-2PM for ages 7-12 on the following dates:

  • June 22 – Explore paint and pattern creating paper fish in the style of artist Paul Klee
  • June 29 – Inspired by artist Eric Carle, create colorful trees, using construction paper, collage style
  • July 6 – Where do butterflies come from? Make them with leaves, flowers and paper branches
  • July 13 – Do you hear an owl? Watercolors make the most beautiful owls
  • July 20 – How many plants do you see? We will be inspired by artist Henri Matisse, creating art using cut out paper shapes
