Kids, Join Artist, Author, Designer, Teacher and Pierce School Mom, Jenn Mason, for an afternoon of Art this fall during Early Release days!
Get an inside look at what it's like to be an artist. We'll look at everything from sketching ideas and making an art plan to learning how to print on gelatin (that's like unflavored Jell-o!)We'll talk about and write our own artist statements, add collage elements to our dried prints, create event postcards, a mailing list and plan a party menu all for a final ART SHOW!All Pierce School kids will be picked up in front of school (by the old building) at 12:30 and walked to the Studio. (Please have children dress accordingly) Class will last until 2:30 with clean-up, questions and extra help lasting until 3. If you have a child that needs to make it to an enrichment class, arrangements can be made. Note: Non Pierce students can meet us at the Studio, 55 White Place, Brookline, MA 02445, 617-759-5ART.
