We will explore lesson plans and exercises which combine a mixture of Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Paper Arts and Collage. For the child who shows an aptitude for arts and crafts, or the child who desires a challenging structured activity other then sports, ARTCanDo is a unique and innovative environment where children can discover and express themselves.

We provide inspiration, encouragement and opportunities to build confidence and boost self esteem. Many of our students have been returning week after week for over two years.

One of the easiest and most rewarding, fun paint techniques ever. Students will create lots of beautifully patterned colored papers by first applying a thick layer of acrylic and then scratching and/or drawing into the paint for a reverse effect. Children are delighted by the bright designs that can be created.

We start with neon colored index cards and lots of other “artsy” supplies on hand. Students then cut, paste, punch, lace, layer and create. These small collages are then mounted on a black background for a wonderful display to take home. Without even thinking about it, students are learning how to compose.

Students will use crayons to create a very simple picture like a car, tree, dog, cat or flower. They will have to work hard to cover the entire picture with lots of crayon. The picture is then carefully crumpled and many tiny cracks appear. It is flattened, painted over and rinsed for a delightful effect.

Using cut straw shapes with a large opening, small accordion folded papers and wooden beads, students will create colorful strings they can then hang in their bedroom or over your front door. A great activity for improving motor skills. They will also learn sequencing and patterning while playing with unique color combinations.
