Trees and a Tree Poem

The first verse of Trees by Joyce Kilmer begins with "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree." The poem continues ,"A tree that may in summer were a nest of robins in her hair".

Artists will rewrite this line to say: A tree that may in October wear __________? Artists will illustrate their ideas within the branches of  painted trees against a background of graded watercolor washes in warm and cool colors.


Thursday After-School program

with Ms Jean

Time: 4:00-5:15  

Starting up again on September 

September 3, 10, 17, 24th


Artists will start the month with a fun project based on the Shel Silversteins poem "The Homework Machine". Using images of real machines, artists will draw an imaginative homework machine and embellish it with boss paper fasteners and wire to get it started! 

Artists will then continue using three different art making skills: Observation, memory and imagination to continue their creative journeys through the rest of September.


The theme for October will be animals in art. Each Thursday will be devoted to one particular animal. Artists will create a Picasso dog, a reptile on a colorful Mexican blanket, a cat from The Cat at Night  by Dahlov Ipcar, a handmade book with a  pop up dog and a drawing of a Maine animal.  The variety of the lessons will allow artists to use and experience a wide range of materials, mediums and techniques.

We hope to see you soon!
