Ages 8-11

Children learn how to communicate and interact with their world every single day. Sometimes they can feel happy and other times they can feel confused and afraid. This Saturday Morning Art Class will allow them to explore their emotions, gain experience working in fibers, and find ways to express themselves through the arts. Emotion, identity, and expression will be addressed by investigating artists that are featured in the Chrysler Museum of Art such as Nick Cave and Mark Rothko. Through weaving, felting, and a little bit of stitching and sewing, they will be able to creatively express and process the emotions that they might be feeling during these confusing times. Fibers is a very tactile experience; it is all about touch and textures. This class will guide them to connect their senses to their emotions using symbolism, color, and fiber arts.

For local students, Art kits will be offered for pick up at the Chrysler located in Norfolk, Virginia and a supply list will be provided for those out of state.

By registering for this, you agree to your commitment for all three classes. Each class builds on the knowledge of the previous one, so attendance is important. You only need to purchase one ticket to reserve your student's seat at all three classes.

Ages 13-19

Art for a Cause is a three-day art class that focuses on current issues that citizens are faced with daily. Participants will be creating works of art around topics such as Racial Injustice, LGBTQ+ movements, Gender Equality, Body Image, and Mental Health. These topics can be sensitive to address; however, we plan to make sure that this is a safe place for everyone to speak their mind, BUT to do so with kindness. This class will be taught over Zoom so teens from other states can join to create meaningful art and connect with others. We will be using artists for inspiration from the featured exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), called “Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of The Black & Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art .” 

For local students, Art kits will be offered for pick up at the  Virginia MOCA located in Virginia, Beach Virginia and a supply list will be provided for those out of state.
