NEW AFTER SCHOOL ART PROGRAMS AT THE CHARLOTTE STREET ARTS CENTRE

This Spring, Fredericton’s youngest citizens will get a boost to their extracurricular activities! The Charlotte Street Arts Centre is excited to announce that Fredericton artist/musician Kaylee Stevens will be leading three different after school classes for a variety of age groups, beginning April 30, 2014.

Spring Splash for ages 2-5, will allow toddlers to dig in deep with bright colours, developing dexterity while getting hands-on with different styles of painting. They’ll take a crack at landscapes, figures, and exploring different textures and layers of paint. Parental participation is strongly encouraged! Six weeks of classes will run ­every Wednesday till June 5, from 1:30-2:15pm.

Wild, Wacky Painting for ages 5-9, aims to foster the wild imaginations of elementary-aged children. From creating friendly monsters and silly creatures to imagining new worlds altogether, the students will work in acrylic, collage, and pastel. Six weeks of classes will run every Wednesday till June 5, from 2:45-3:30pm.

Pop Art Papier Maché for ages 10-14, will give middle-school aged students a chance to really let loose, exploring their own inspirations in 3-D imagery. They’ll explore the art history of Dada, Surrealism, and the Pop-art movement, drawing inspiration from Breton, Warhol, and Dali to create puppets, statues, or abstract installation pieces, using recycled materials where possible. Six weeks of classes will run every Wednesday till June 5, from 3:45-4:45pm.

Kaylee Stevens is a mixed-media artist from Fredericton, New Brunswick. She works as a painter, draughtswoman, sculptor and musician within various Fredericton communities. Her greatest inspirations are drawn from surrealism and contemporary street art, and she is interested the relationship between music and visual art. She has been teaching art in the Fredericton community for several years, and finds inspiration in working with young artists and loves to help them develop their uninhibited creative selves.
