The Dougherty Arts Center’s Youth Saturday Arts Program helps provide young artists with experiences in various art mediums that they might not receive in conventional arts education. Each program month will focus on a new theme, so no two projects will ever be the same. This way, students can repeat classes as often as they like.
Students may register for all three classes in the Saturday rotation. Dougherty staff will transition students between registered classes which are contiguous. In this case, please send a snack and water bottle for transition time(s). If you choose to enroll your child in non-adjacent classes, you will be responsible for the time between classes.
Get your hands dirty! Students will be introduced to various hand-building techniques as they create unique three-dimensional projects. Pinching, coiling, and slab-building will all be explored, while older students will get the opportunity to try their hands at the pottery wheel. Students will glaze their pieces, resulting in amazing works of clay art! Materials and firing included.
Ages 5-7 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM Ages 8-10 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM Ages 11-14 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
YOUTH DIGITAL ARTS
Jump into the future of digital art! Students will explore all things digital and build on their skills as they illustrate and animate, design and print 3D objects, and create their own virtual reality experiences. Learn the art of the future today! Students will need an 8GB USB drive to take their projects home.

Make your mark! Experiment with quality of line, draw shapes, create depth, render forms with value and texture. Students will employ the elements of art as they draw from life, reference, art history, and their own imaginations. Learn how to compose a work using the principles of design. Look beyond graphite pencils and try charcoal, pastel, ink, and more. Materials included.
