Afterschool Art Club is a free, once a week activity for school age children interested in the arts. Club activities connect children with local professional artists who’s experience and passion for their craft inspire our club members to aspire to a life in the arts.
Schoodic Arts’ Art Club is active in Peninsula School, Ella Lewis School, Homeschool groups, and Sumner High School.
Schoodic Arts now totals over 3000 contact hours per year in our Children’s Programming of which Art Club makes up nearly half.
We have introduced a variety of studio practices: Pinhole Camera Photography and Wet Darkroom Developing, Wooden Bird Carving and Painting, Pottery Wheel and Handbuilding in Clay.
Past Projects have included: Acrobatics with Molly Gawler, Stone Sculpture with Obadiah Buell, Wet and Needle Felting, and an Exhibit of student work at the Wendell Gilley Museum.
