HCAC’s Kids Art Club’s mission is to ignite and nurture creativity in the youth of Haywood County! Art is a fantastic outlet for problem-solving and self-expression. Join us for a variety of classes, each exploring a unique medium and topic. Kid’s Art Club meets on the third Thursday of each month. Pay per class and let your child’s imagination run wild!

Class Instructor: Rumi Kakareka

Class Objectives:  The class builds basic art skills and confidence by offering a broad range of art experiences. The May 16th session will center on basic drawing skills. Students will create ‘caricatures’ with a variety of drawing tools and/or paper cut-out. They will also be given a group/team challenge.

Class Description:  Each session is centered on a different project, hence different materials and tools will be explored. May 16 is Cut and Draw. The basic flow is an intro, exploration (30 min) and group/team challenge (30 min), cleanup. Anything we do, everyone can do (modified as necessary).
