Mar 12, 2013

Mispillion Art League announces its spring schedule of classes for children, starting with Painting in Pastels for Children with Cathy Walls, which will run on Tuesdays from April 9 through April 30.

Using pure colors of chalk pastels, this introductory class is designed to increase the student's visual art skills. Students will use a variety of activities that stimulate the creative process and build confidence in the ability to see form and detail. Inspiration will be taken from still life, scenes from outdoors and photos. First- through third-graders will meet from 4 to 5 p.m., and fourth- through sixth-graders from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. Cost is $50 for student members and $60 for nonmembers; register by Wednesday, April 3.

Children age 6 and over, along with a parent or grandparent, can come together at the Mispillion Art League to create one-of-a-kind jewelry for Mother’s Day from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 28.

Artist Gilda Jennings will lead a class designed for Mom (or Grandma) and child, where, using simple stringing techniques, both will make a necklace or bracelet and earrings set made of semiprecious stones.  No previous jewelry-making experience is needed. Cost is dependent upon which set each participant chooses to make.

Choices must be indicated at time of registration for class to allow for ordering of materials. Cost is $50 per set for necklace and earrings, or $35 per set for bracelet and earrings. No registrations will be accepted after Sunday, April 14.

Action Figures with Anne Carroll will run Tuesdays, May 7 to 28. Students will learn to illustrate and portray figures in action using different media and different styles over the four weeks of this class.

First- through third-graders will meet from 4 to 5 p.m., and fourth- through sixth-graders from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. All classes take place at the Mispillion gallery at 5 N. Walnut St. in Milford; register by Wednesday, May 1. Cost is $50 members and $60 nonmembers.
