…Ism Explosion at Staunton Augusta Art Center

The Staunton Augusta Art Center is now taking registrations for an …Ism Explosion July 11-15 (10am-noon).

Ada Sue Myers, the multiple-award-winning recent graduate from MBC’s art department, will be teaching Expressionism to 4- to 5-year-olds. They will definitely need smocks – which we provide – because these youngsters will learn Jackson Pollack-inspired painting techniques. Look out!

The Impressionism class for 6- to 8-year-olds will be taught by Beth Lint, who teaches art for Waynesboro Public Schools. She has been a favorite teacher at Summer Studio in the past and we’re happy to welcome her back, now that she has adjusted to young motherhood. What a nice coincidence that Beth’s favorite artist is Monet!

Veteran art teacher Maribeth Nolde will be leading the older campers (9- to 12-year-olds) in their exploration of Surrealism. Would you like an artistic interpretation of your dreams?

The teachers are knowledgeable, experienced, energetic, and creative. The students develop art skills in an art history/art theory context and have a blast in the process.

Register today by calling the Art Center at 540.885.2028. Classes are $85/week for non-members and $75/week for members and pre-registration is required.
