Painting with Scribble Art

Grades K–2: 15 Wednesdays, 4:05–4:50 pm, September 14–January 11
Members: $450*, Nonmembers: $495

Grades 3–5: 15 Wednesdays, 5:00–545 pm, September 14–January 11—REGISTRATION CLOSED
Members: $450*, Nonmembers: $495

This class will focus on drawing, painting, and the combination of the two art forms. Students will learn how to draw from both observation and imagination. Self-portraits, maps, object drawings, landscapes—we’ll draw upon many subject matters using a wide variety of drawing tools and surfaces and layer most of our drawings with painting and/or collage materials. We’ll explore watercolor, acrylic, ink, and other forms of mark-making with a brush and without. Alternating the painting surface, material, and tools will give our artists a wealth of various experiences with the art of creating artwork with paint.

Grades 3–5: Thursdays, 5:00–5:45 pm, September 13–January 12—REGISTRATION CLOSED
Members: $480*, Nonmembers: $528

Sculpture is one of the foundational classes at Scribble mainly because it directly teaches some of our most essential beliefs of art: art-making is about problem-solving and responding to the materials in front of you. In this class, artists will explore all types of building with a variety of materials and methods including wood, clay, paper, and more—all to teach (through experience) the most important elements of sculpture: structural stability and aesthetic detail/interest.

Art for Everyone (grades K–6)

14 Mondays, 4:05–4:50 pm, September 12–January 9
Members: $350*, Nonmembers: $462

This inclusive class for elementary-aged students with varying abilities is designed and taught by Kit Demirdelen, a teaching artist and art therapist in the lower Hudson Valley. The class focuses on the process of art-making as a sensorial, creative and productive experience. We will use a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional materials to complete projects that all children can feel proud of. It is led by an art therapist who has experience working with children with a wide range of emotional, cognitive and physical abilities. There will be a combination of daily activities, and some projects that develop over the course of a few weeks.

Wild Art and Play (grades pre-K–1st grade)

6 Thursdays, 4:05–4:50 pm, September 15–November 3
Members: $180, Nonmembers: $198

Fall Fun with Wild Art and Play! The colors, textures, and transitions of Autumn will be our sensory-rich focus. We’ll play with late-blooming flowers, changing leaves, and a variety of local seed pods and then let the season’s offerings inspire our process-oriented art-making. We will draw, paint, and make collages with both store-bought and handmade art materials. This class combines four things that children love; being outdoors, examining nature, experimenting with art materials, and playing with friends.

About Wild Play

Wild Play was founded by Melissa Lohman-Wild, an early childhood with an interest in nature-connected exploration, creative communication, and intergenerational collaboration. Before pivoting to working with children, she was a teaching artist in documentary production, training New York City teens to produce stories about themselves and their communities and worked in film and television production. She has taught in preschools, elementary schools, studio schools, summer camps, community centers, libraries, playgrounds, backyards, and in the woods.
