After School Art Class Projects 2017-18

After School Art ProjectsWe just wrapped up another great year of after school art! This is a tuition-based class that I teach outside of school hours. The projects below are from my fall & winter sessions from 2017-18. To read more about starting an after school art class and get free resources click here. For the past 7 years, I have taught two 10-week after school art sessions each year. My school allows me to use my classroom, but I provide all my own supplies (paper, paints, clay, glazes, etc.). This is a huge blessing and a great source of extra income (especially on a teacher’s salary)!

Mixed Media Huichol Penguin Yarn Penguin

Idea came from (not in English) and we changed the penguin from folded paper to yarn. This was a little difficult for the Prek-Kinder kiddos, but they were able to do it with a little help. The last picture on the right is from a Prek student, he has excellent motor skills (parents provide art supplies at home!).
