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 designed by Amber Lee to partner creative kids with local creative professionals who guide them in a variety of experiences in the creative arts. Click here to learn more. Classes are Thursday afternoons at 2:45-4,  September - October.

 

Fine Arts U gives students an introduction each week to one of the following areas of fine arts:

 

Dance Choreography

Video Production/Drama

Photography

Visual Arts

Sculpture

Music and Creative Writing

 

Enrollment is full so please check back in August so you can join us 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 CreativeKidAdvocate@gmail.com

 

*Students will be encouraged to enter artwork into the Reflections Art Program as a benefit to your PTA Membership. The intention is for the students to have an introduction to art forms so they can easily complete a work of art of their choosing at home and enter it into Reflections. We desire to encourage students to take pride in their artwork and share it as an entry for this awesome Art Program and further their creative interests. Deadline for entry is the first Wednesday of November each year. 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 CreativeKidAdvocate@gmail.com.

 

Classes are taught by Amber Lee, Scott Herndon, along with special guests who are also local professionals in their field.

Weeks 1 - 6 - Professionals Teach You Art!

Students will be taught by local professionals in various areas of study in this FAU Intro 1001 class. Each week will be a new subject and the students will learn and experience the basics of dance, photography, art, and video production/drama, sculpture and  creative writing with music. If students find an area of interest, they are able to continue this with our local artists and professionals in the area.

Create Your Own:

Depending on the schedule, students will have time to work on a project of their choosing 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.
