On February 19 the kids in our Art Club will work with composer, percussionist and music teacher Eduardo Scaramuzza.
The Art Club is for children in 1st to 8th grade. The Art Club introduces children to contemporary art in a fun and accessible way. Here, we explore what contemporary art is, and what kind of experiences and tools we can bring from art into our everyday lives. The children will meet and work with professional artists, and get explore our exhibitions together with our skilled educators. At the end of each semester we organise an exhibition for family and friends.
The theme for the Art Club Spring 2023 semester is care. We can experience care with our family, friends and classmates, even with animals and nature. How do we care for ourselves and others? How do we take care of each other in a group?
