Wildwood's Earth Art classes include elements of earth science, art history, artistic skill and technique building, while allowing children to use quality art materials and natural items hand selected straight from the outdoors. Their focus is on learning where our materials are coming from and how to use them to create, classical art concepts and techniques, and the process of creating art from the heart.
On select Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30am, we'll meet with homeschoolers to build our very own Earth Art kits, with an incredible 4:1 student-teacher ratio. These kits will be put together with natural materials, handmade tools and art supplies, and are perfect for taking with you outdoors for some open-air sketching and painting. Kits come packaged in a hinged wooden box and will include watercolor paper, horsehair paintbrush, pigment dish and paintbrush rest, 2 starter pigments in containers, mini easel, and students' choice of charcoal stick or charcoal crayon. Yes, that means your child will learn how to make a quality paintbrush by hand, with bamboo and real horsehair!
