Basic Program Information

Welcome to SKETCH!

We are a service oriented art program open to children of any age. In our pressure-free environment, children will experiment with many different art materials, become aware of basic formal art techniques, and learn to recognize and appreciate the work of master artists. Our highest goal, however, is not simply to teach art principles, but to show children that one of the greatest joys in creating art is sharing it with others. Each project is intentionally designed as a community support effort, and copies of the children’s artwork will be used to adorn new clothes for the needy, gifts for the sick, messages to our soldiers, and more.
“As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people” ~ Gal 6:10a

During the course of this class we will be looking at the work of VanGogh, Cassatt, Mondrian, Picasso, Monet, & Homer.  The instruction part of the class comes first, and will take 20 min or so, then the kids will break out their supplies. We will have a few hands on activities to fully demonstrate the artistic principle covered in our lesson (balance, texture, etc.), and then they will be turned loose to simply create.

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month
from 6:30 - 8:00 PM*
at New Hope Christian Fellowship,
292 Route 101, Bedford, NH 03110

The cost for the 2010 program is $10 per family for the year, payable at time of registration. Checks may be written to “New Hope Christian Fellowship.”

Please be aware that this is not a drop-off group. We encourage parents to learn alongside their children. For the safety of the children, there will be no exceptions. The best way to encourage artistic experimentation is to model it yourself, so pull up a chair, grab a crayon, and join the fun.

We look forward to creating something special with you!
