Virtual Studio Classes - Ages 6-12

This winter join us for Joslyn Art School or Home School Art School!

What are virtual studio classes at Joslyn?

Step One:
Set up your studio space and prepare your artist's supplies in the comfort of your own home to get ready to make art!
Step Two:
Log-on to Zoom for weekly 75-minute classes that will investigate Joslyn artworks and artists, present art vocabulary and concepts, and technical demonstrations. Time will be spent each session for guided practice of new skills and artful experimentation with your instructor and virtual studio mates.
Step Three:
Work like an artist to complete weekly independent studio goals offline. Students will be encouraged to as you make apply the skills and conecpts learned online and share their artistic choices, challenges, and successes when we meet each session.

Technical Requirements
Participants will need a computer or tablet with a webcam, microphone, and speakers. Connection is via Zoom, a web-based cloud platform. A test connection prior to each scheduled lesson is encouraged. An email with special instructions specific to each class will be sent prior to each class start date. The email will include a Zoom invitation that allows registered students to log-on and join the class.

Workspace and Supplies
Virtual Art Class supply kits are available for purchase through Joslyn and will accommodate all artmaking planned for the class. Purchased supply kits may be picked up from Joslyn prior to class. (Delivery is not an option.) A material list for each class will be provided for those who prefer to gather their own supplies. Each student must have all of the supplies listed for each class to have a successful experience

If possible, students should choose a designated workspace that can be utilized as a “studio” for the week. Please consider the materials and plan ahead to accommodate any mess. Finding a dedicated space will allow students the flexibility and independence to “work in the studio” as inspiration occurs.

Students are encouraged to work independently while in class, but adults are asked to remain available to provide art-making or technological assistance.

If a child’s or adult’s participation is dependent upon financial aid, please call (402) 661-3846. All requests will be held in confidence.
