Fred’s Creative Kids Art Classes (grades k-12)

All weekly Fred’s Creative Kids Art classes are held October through May and are geared for students grades k-12. If a student is signed up for a class that is not in their skill/ability, our teachers will help evaluate the student to make sure they are placed in the best class for their success and continued learning. Throughout the year, students will explore a wide range of mediums -watercolor, ink, pastel, acrylic, pencil, and clay. In the Spring we have a Student Art Show where students will have the opportunity to submit three of their favorite pieces for display.

Exploring Art

(beginning students) – 1 hr class

Classes focus on learning about the 7 Elements of Art (line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space) and how they are used throughout. We do this through art projects that explore a variety of art techniques and mediums.

Discovering Your Art

(intermediate students) – 1 hr class

Classes focus on learning about the 7 Principles of Design (balance, movement, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, pattern, and unity) which adds on their previous knowledge about the 7 Elements of Art. We allow the students to explore these principles by creating works of art in many different art forms.

Mastering Your Art

(advanced students) – 1.5 hr class

This class extends the foundations that students have already been working on. Lessons include composition, values, design and everything that would be included in a good painting. As this is a more advanced class students have more flexibility to work on pieces of their interest within the framework of the class. Students are given individual feedback and attention each week.

Saturday Art for Kids

(ages 8-14, no experience necessary) – 2 hr class

This class is offered one Saturday a month. Each month students will learn an art medium and complete an art project using various techniques and mediums to take home. This is a great opportunity to be creative in an environment where there are no mistakes. All art materials & snacks are included. NO experience necessary! Monthly dates to be announced.

Class Size and Supplies

Classes meet once a week and are ongoing from month to month. Classes are intended to be progressive, beginning with relatively simple concepts and projects, and ending in the spring with more difficult concepts and major pieces of work. However, you may enroll at any time. Our instructors will make sure no-one ever feels left behind.

There is a minimum of 6 students per class or the class may be canceled. Every effort will be made to place your child into another class. There is a maximum of 12 students in each class.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which class should I register my child for?

Classes are based on skill more than age — Exploring Art for beginning students, Discovering Your Art for intermediate students and Mastering Your Art for advanced students. If a student is signed up for a class not in their skill/ability, our teachers will help evaluate the student to make sure they are placed in the best class for their success and continued learning.

What should my child wear to class?

Please dress your child according to the weather but make sure they wear play clothes.  Even when we cover them with t-shirts it is possible to come home with clay or paint on their clothes.

What if my child misses a class?

Your child may make up a missed class on another day, but you will be charged for all classes unless prior arrangements have been made.

Do I need supplies?

All supplies for children’s art classes are covered in the yearly $10 supply fee.

Do I drop my children off or stay and wait?

You may do either one. We ask should you choose to wait while your child attends art class that you stay in the designated waiting area and keep your voice down so students can concentrate on their artwork. We have a small table with markers that siblings can color at while waiting.

Where do I park?

There is street parking along 9th Ave SW.

If there is no school, do you have class?

Our class schedule is not based on any school schedule as we have students in multiple districts as well as homeschool students. We have class on every Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday with the exception of Christmas break. Class may be canceled due to snow, if this happens we will do our best to notify you, and you will be credited a class.
