This year, we are expanding our programming to include a variety of one hour classes for school-aged children, in a variety of categories. These classes will be in accord with the visual arts standards for the state of Alabama. Each studio in this series will feature a different visual arts activity that engages the kids, while teaching them important skills. This series will be a great opportunity to show how the arts can overlap traditional learning methods. We suggest ages 8 & up attend these crafts, but please reach out to Molly Nelko at mnelko@kentuck.org to discuss accommodations for younger children. Children under 10 need to be accompanied by an adult. May will feature 6 classes: Session A: Wednesday, May 4; 3-4 PM Friendship Bracelets-Develop dexterity and concentration while making friendship bracelets! Session B: Saturday, May 7; 9:30-10:30 AM Painting to Music--Express yourself through painting to music from kids movies. Session C: Saturday, May 7; 11 AM-12 PM Watercolor Resists--Learn the science of how different art mediums interact by making watercolor resists! Session D: Wednesday, May 11; 3-4 pm Button Collage--Learn the fundamentals of sewing and more to make a button collage! Session E: Wednesday, May 18; 3-4 PM Tessellations--Discover a connection between math and art to create patterns called tessellations! Session F: Wednesday, May 25; 3-4 PM Drawing--Develop and explore the basics of drawing. There is a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 16 per session. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.  About Molly Nelko: A native of Mobile, AL, Molly Nelko has joined Kentuck’s staff as our Programming Assistant! She attended Springhill College and received a BA in fine art with a focus on oil painting and printmaking. Her work has been in individual exhibitions from Portland, OR to Hilton Head SC, and can be found online. Molly currently lives in Tuscaloosa with her husband, three children, and cat Quill. She has experimented with many different forms of art, and some of her favorites are encaustic, tessellations, and ink wash. Molly currently works in her studio regularly, but her focus has become more about enjoying creative projects with her children. This workshop is sponsored in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
