Artsy Fartsy Kids

Want your children to be more interesting? Send them to art classes at oLo Gallery.

Creative Kids oLo Gallery art classes - New dates added!

Little Picassos, Creative Kids has designed an early-access-to-art curriculum for children 3-6 years old. This specialized class is taught by a certified child-life specialist, giving children the opportunity to discover and express themselves through different activities that include art, rhythm, movement and even preparing their own snack. During this developmental period, children are very inquisitive and playful, and love to learn through exploring, creating, pretending and discovering. Through carefully planned age-appropriate activities, they are given the opportunity to fulfill these needs in a fun way that works with an arts education foundation and their own artwork. Classes are held from 10 a.m.-noon on each class date. The course fee includes all materials and a snack.

Project SAC (Saturday Art Classes), Project SAC is open for youth ages 7-18. The studio art classes provide culturally sensitive art-mediated opportunities for positive development and expression for youth with a predisposition for the arts. Classes take place from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on each class date. Creative Kids provides the resources and independent communication avenues that guide the children through the discovery of their own talent, interest and passion for the creative arts that is mediated through trained artists. The participating children are engaged in a “hands-on” arts and digital media curriculum that includes painting on canvas, printmaking, silk-screening, ceramics, watermedia, sculpture and graphic design. An important aspect of this program is giving the youth the opportunity to showcase and exhibit their artwork in public spaces throughout the El Paso community. The course fee includes all materials.

Both classes are held at the Creative Kids oLo Gallery, located at 504 San Francisco St. in the Union Plaza district of downtown El Paso. Call for prices at 568-7506.
