After School Art Program
Our youth are future artists and audience for the arts. The goal of WNAC's seven month After School Art Program is to offer visual arts education to grades 1-6 using the Nebraska State Standards for Fine Arts Education as a guide. Students will develop skills to create, present, respond to, and connect art with the human experience.
Through exploration of media-painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, applied design, and technology-they will begin to develop an understanding of the principles of art and elements of design, deepening their expressive and critical faculties, honing their art skills, and cultivating their imagination. Each child will create a portfolio of their work through the program and have the opportunity to participate in a gallery exhibit during the month of April.
WNAc offers two visual arts workshops every year in June to youth of our community. Art Camp 1 is open to students ages 10-15 and Art Camp 2 is open to student 6-9.
