In addition to teaching a regular 8-2pm school day, I offer afterschool art classes to the kids. We meet from 2:30-3:45. Parents love it because the kids just stay and don't have to be carted anywhere! I love it because they all WANT to be in the room with me making fabulous art! Each month we focus on different mediums. This month was all about paint.
I teach 3 days afterschool with K-1 on Monday, 2-3 on Tuesday and 4-5 on Wednesday. Every class has I think 23 kiddos? Yes, I know! But the difference between the day classes and these is that there are no discipline issues....it is fabulous! I also have 2/5th graders in the younger two classes who help me out. It works great.
The munchkins did a wonderful job of following my lead with their paintings. They took two sessions to complete. The older kids painted cardinals (which I totally spazzed on and forgot to take photos of!!) and the babies made some super duper cute portraits. I'll be showing those off next week! Until then have a great one!!
