Dotties Jr. Art League
The art league is as much a art club as an art class. It is an excellent solution for those students that really aren't into sports and have a creative side to them that they want to explore. However, by no means does this mean that art is all that they can do if they attend these classes...I encourage well-roundedness. Students experience camaraderie and form life long friendships! This is because every year is different, and students sign up again and again. Some students have attended classes for up to 10 years in a row! It's really fun for me to watch their talents blossom!
Classes run for a whole school year, but students are welcome to start at any time (classes break for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and Easter.) Students meet for 2 hours each week. Classes meet after school or during the day for home school students and are limited to 10 students/class with one teacher, and up to 18 with two teachers. Students host an annual art show open to the friends and family at the end of the school year to display some of their artwork.
Students explore a variety of mediums (pen & ink, charcoal, acrylic and watercolor painting, pastels, colored pencils, carving and even weaving!) while learning new techniques in art. We delve into the basics in art, sketching, shading, and color theory! Students also learn about different artists in history as part of understanding different art periods and styles.
Students enjoy art related field trips such as the Art Institute in Downtown Chicago, Architecture Tours in Chicago, Museum of Science and Industry, and annual trip to Art Works at the Lincolnway School District. Visiting Artists host presentations annually for students to help them learn the many facets an artist can go with their art as they mature and show how art is used in the "real world".
