We are proud to offer "Fine Arts University" in conjunction with PTA Reflections. Students who are serious about art and learning the different areas of study are encouraged to enroll.
Fine Arts University is a 6 week program on Thursday afternoons at 2:45-4 beginning September 14th and ending October 19th. Fine Arts U is designed to guide the students in creating their own work of art in their Major choice of study with an introduction each week to one of the following areas of fine arts:
Registration is now closed. The class is full with 20 total students. Please sign up next year.
Want to help? We would love to have any fine arts loving adults help us make this program a success! Email Amber Lee at HarringtonPrograms@gmail.com
*Students will be encouraged but not required to enter their work into the free Reflections Art Program. The intention is for the students to have 2 weeks to work on their project so they can easily complete it at home and enter it into Reflections. We desire to take away this duty from parents and allow the students to have a designated time to create an entry for this awesome Art Program and further their creative interests. Deadline for entry is Friday November 3rd, 2017. Click here see more about the Reflections program.*
Below is a basic outline of the 6 week curriculum. Please email us if you have any questions at HarringtonPrograms@gmail.com.
Classes are taught by Amber Lee, Scott Herndon, Valerie Bailey and Cyndie Ward along with special guests who are also local professionals in their field.
Week 1 - Dance with Fenton Fulgham:
Students will learn about dance choreography from a local professional. They will be taught a dance during this week and will learn skills for creating their own dance choreography.
Week 2 - Song Writing with Ian Osborne:
Students will learn about the Reflections Art Program, go home with papers and information about how the Fine Arts U Program connects to the Reflections Art Program. They learn from a professional musician on how to write songs. They will work on their own song during the first class.
Week 3 - Photography with Cyndie Ward:
Students will learn photography skills from a professional photographer. They will have the chance to work with professional equipment and take their own photos.
Week 4 - Visual Art with Amber Lee:
Students will learn about and create their own work of art. They will learn about layout and design of art.
Weeks 5&6 - Create Your Own:
Students will work on their projects while mentored in the area of their Major. Direction, supervision, and critique by professional artists will allow the students to have guided work time to create their own project. We will cover the importance of presentation and the students will have completed their work, ready for entry into the Reflections Art Program, or will have significant direction to complete at home.
