Art Offerings

The advanced art education program is designed to promote and elevate student understanding of the comprehensive language of visual art through class offerings diverse in process and media.  Students will learn the value of understanding a visual language which encourages communication through self expression and creativity.  At Ancillae-Assumpta Academy we are committed to educating students to become creative problem solvers through dynamic art experiences reinforcing the elements and principles of design while improving overall academic performance and self confidence.

Art for Explorers - Grades 3-5

This class is designed for students who love art and want to explore new possibilities in drawing, painting, and mixed media. Students will be introduced to several different basic skills that provide the “tools” necessary to draw and paint with confidence, as well as to gain the ability to see the world as an artist.

Sew Easy, Sew Fun - Grades 4-8

Would you like to make your own clothes, handbags, and quilted items?  Would you like to give handmade items as gifts?  Then join the fun and enroll in our new sewing class.  You will learn to sew on a real sewing machine, learn to read a simple pattern, and learn about different fabrics.  But the best part is that you can take pride in wearing or giving something that you made by yourself.  Supply lists will be distributed upon enrollment.  Classes are limited and fill quickly!  

Intermediate Sewing, Advanced Sewing, and Quilting - Grades 5-8

Take your sewing skills further and learn basic quilting skills.  Use a sewing machine to create a quilted pillow by the end of this class.  Supply lists will be distributed upon enrollment.  Classes are limited. 

Ceramics - Grades 6-8

Session One:  Students are introduced to the basics of Ceramics including working with clay in various stages, such as wet, leather hard, and bisqueware. Everyone creates an assortment of projects including basic forms of pinch pot, coil building, and slab construction.  To complete this session, instruction on glazing along with a simple introduction on firing will leave each student with a confident understanding of this art form.

Session Two:  Students will build on their knowledge from the previous session to create two projects: one functional and the other sculptural.  They will observe artwork from a variety of practicing ceramic artists. Students will work individually, write about their process and critique their finished pieces.  *It is recommended that students complete Session One before registering for this course.
