FEELING A LITTLE OVERWHELMED & NOT SURE WHAT TO PICK?? READ ON! HOPEFULLY THIS WILL MAKE CLEAR WHAT EACH CLASS IS ABOUT:
PRINTMAKING: Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn an incredibly satisfying and versatile art form. Your artist will learn how to design, carve & then print a number of times throughout the course of this 8-week session. Aside from hand-lettering, this is one of Kristy’s favorite styles of art so she is ultra-excited about the opportunity to offer this class at Kuga. She’s also pretty confident your artist will be totally hooked once he/she experiences the magic of pulling the paper away from his/her very own carved block for the first time.
TEXTILES: Explore Fiber Arts! Projects include making pom pom garland, learning the basics of wet felting rocks, yarn bombing branches, creating unique sculptures with a message, wrapped wire words and symbols, and needle felted figures. Come join the colorful fun!!
MIXED MEDIA CLASSES: In these classes your artist will learn a wide range of skills through exploring a variety of mediums and tools. Your artist will learn much more than just cookie cutter crafts! We strive to expose students to aspects of art history, current art makers, and the elements of art (line, space, color, balance, etc.), while letting them run a little wild with their own imagination. Mixed media classes are an excellent starting point for trying out an art class with us as some other more advanced classes we offer may require mixed media as a pre-requisite.
(HOMESCHOOL CLASS – We have a new teacher on board at Kuga Visual Arts! Julie Wu was born and raised in Taiwan. She has a BFA in illustration with digital emphasis from the Academy of Art University. She has worked in screen printing companies. Her children’s book “go to sleep, hide and seek” was published by Island Heritage. She now lives on Kauai with her husband and their three children. We are pumped to have this talented woman share her skills and plant seeds of creativity in the students of Kuga!!
ART IN THE STYLE OF OLIVER JEFFERS: Most parents associate Oliver Jeffers as the author and illustrator of cute and funny children’s books, but when you take a look at his art you will see much depth and creativity. In case you’re unfamiliar with Oliver Jeffers, he is one of our favorite modern day artists. Click here for link to his website. This course will cover a variety of super fun and funky art projects highlighting techniques and art mediums resulting in a style similar to Mr. Jeffers.
CREATION STATIONS FOR TODDLERS: Curated in a way that will foster a love for all things creative in your littlest peeps. Because of the short attention span of this age group we’ve learned they thrive best in our studio when offered creative stations through which they can rotate. The focus is much more on process-oriented art projects and exploring a variety of mediums which they may have never touched or used before. Parent or guardian required to stay for the length of the class – we’re convinced you’ll experience great joy both in seeing the wonder on your keiki’s face as they play and create AND in getting to leave the mess with us!
