This is a class for artists 3-4 years old. CLASS STRUCTURE Every project is based on a different children's book. Each class is broken into four components: Story time, drawing, coloring, and crafting. After reading a children's book, students are taught how to decompose the characters in the book into the 5 elements of shape and redraw them. Drawing helps students retain information about the subject 8 times faster and longer. All artwork is retained by the teacher and returned at the end of the term in a bound portfolio. Crafts go home with the student each week. BENEFITS The structure and lessons of this class encourage visual perception and hand-eye coordination. Other benefits we have noticed in the past include improved handwriting, fine-motor skills, shape recognition, and confidence.

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined variable: course_title in <b>/home/monartna/public_html/ores/global-theme/includes/classes.php</b> on line <b>104</b><br />

This class is for students 4-7 years old seeking to learn how to sculpt ceramic pieces. STRUCTURE OF CLASS This class teaches the basis of ceramic hand building techniques like pinch pots, coiling, and slab method. The first 10 classes of a term are dedicated to hand-building pieces. Each ceramic piece takes 2 -3 weeks to dry. Once dry, it is fired in a kiln to a bisque bisque state. Once bisque fired, pieces are returned to students, who will paint and glaze them using different finishing techniques including dipping, painting, and sgraffito. The pieces will dry for a day and then undergo a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Once 8 years old, students may either continue learning and improving hand-building techniques or join a wheel-throwing class. This will allow them time to master the skills taught. TUITION The tuition covers the cost of clay, glazes, and firing.

This is a class for artists 3-4 years old. CLASS STRUCTURE Every project is based on a different children's book. Each class is broken into four components: Story time, drawing, coloring, and crafting. After reading a children's book, students are taught how to decompose the characters in the book into the 5 elements of shape and redraw them. Drawing helps students retain information about the subject 8 times faster and longer. All artwork is retained by the teacher and returned at the end of the term in a bound portfolio. Crafts go home with the student each week. BENEFITS The structure and lessons of this class encourage visual perception and hand-eye coordination. Other benefits we have noticed in the past include improved handwriting, fine-motor skills, shape recognition, and confidence. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students are expected to stay in the class for a full calendar year (four consecutive semesters). Each term features brand new projects and books. Advancing to the next level, Getting Ready I, is based on how well the student is able to do the projects under the teacher's supervision.

CERAMICS: Hand Building & Sculpting I

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined variable: course_title in <b>/home/monartna/public_html/ores/global-theme/includes/ages.php</b> on line <b>84</b><br />

This class is for students 4-7 years old seeking to learn how to sculpt ceramic pieces. STRUCTURE OF CLASS This class teaches the basis of ceramic hand building techniques like pinch pots, coiling, and slab method. The first 10 classes of a term are dedicated to hand-building pieces. Each ceramic piece takes 2 -3 weeks to dry. Once dry, it is fired in a kiln to a bisque bisque state. Once bisque fired, pieces are returned to students, who will paint and glaze them using different finishing techniques including dipping, painting, and sgraffito. The pieces will dry for a day and then undergo a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Once 8 years old, students may either continue learning and improving hand-building techniques or join a wheel-throwing class. This will allow them time to master the skills taught. TUITION The tuition covers the cost of clay, glazes, and firing.

This class is for beginner students 4-6 years old. PRE-REQUISITES No prior experience is required, but the Preschool Monart class is often beneficial. CLASS STRUCTURE Each class is one hour long, and starts with a 5-minute skill exercise. Then, students are introduced to the subject, followed by the drawing and coloring component. The subject and coloring media varies each week in Monart's progressive curriculum. Students follow the progressive curriculum set by the Monart School. Topics include 2-dimensional materials, 3-dimensional objects, human form, perspective, proportion, color theory, as well as techniques in how to color using various art media. All artwork is retained by the teacher, and returned at the end of the term in a bound portfolio. BENEFITS The skill exercise at the beginning of class changes each term. It is intended to fine tune an important art skill (e.g., shading, drawing hands, pencil pressure). Students will learn to use the 5 elements of shape to decompose creatures from nature and objects from their world into simple shapes they can redraw. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students are expected to stay in the class for a full calendar year (four consecutive semesters). Each term features brand new projects. Advancing to the next level, Getting Ready II, is based on how well the student is able to do the projects under the teacher's supervision.

CERAMICS: Wheel Throwing I

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined variable: course_title in <b>/home/monartna/public_html/ores/global-theme/includes/ages.php</b> on line <b>84</b><br />

This class is for students ages 6-8 who want to learn how to throw and pull ceramic vessels on a pottery wheel. STRUCTURE OF CLASS Wheel throwing requires upper body strength, practice, and a lot of patience. Students will learn how to wedge and prepare their clay, center clay on a spinning wheel, turn a lump of clay into a pot or vessel, trim leather-hard vessels and add rims/feet. As students progress, they will be able to center larger sections of clay and pull taller and wider walls on their vessels. Once vessels are dry (3 weeks), they will undergo a first bisque fire. Students will then glaze and/or engrave the pieces, after which they will be completed in a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students advance to the next age group when they are 9 years or older. At this point they can opt to continue growing their wheel throwing skills OR learn hand building and sculpting skills. This will allow them time to master the skills taught. The tuition covers the cost of clay, glazes and firing that are made onsite.

CERAMICS: Hand Building & Sculpting II

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined variable: course_title in <b>/home/monartna/public_html/ores/global-theme/includes/ages.php</b> on line <b>84</b><br />

This class is for students 8-12 years old seeking to learn how to sculpt ceramic pieces. STRUCTURE OF CLASS This class teaches the basis of ceramic hand building techniques like pinch pots, coiling, and slab method. The first 10 classes of a term are dedicated to hand-building pieces. Each ceramic piece takes 2 -3 weeks to dry. Once dry, it is fired in a kiln to a bisque bisque state. Once bisque fired, pieces are returned to students, who will paint and glaze them using different finishing techniques including dipping, painting, and sgraffito. The pieces will dry for a day and then undergo a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Once 13 years old, students may either continue learning and improving hand-building techniques or join a wheel-throwing class. This will allow them time to master the skills taught. TUITION The tuition covers the cost of clay, glazes, and firing.

<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined variable: course_title in <b>/home/monartna/public_html/ores/global-theme/includes/ages.php</b> on line <b>84</b><br />

This class is for students ages 9-12 who want to learn how to throw and pull ceramic vessels on a pottery wheel. STRUCTURE OF CLASS Wheel throwing requires upper body strength, practice, and a lot of patience. Students will learn how to wedge and prepare their clay, center clay on a spinning wheel, turn a lump of clay into a pot or vessel, trim leather-hard vessels and add rims/feet. As students progress, they will be able to center larger sections of clay and pull taller and wider walls on their vessels. Once vessels are dry (3 weeks), they will undergo a first bisque fire. Students will then glaze and/or engrave the pieces, after which they will be completed in a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students advance to the next age group when they are 13 years or older. At this point they can opt to continue growing their wheel throwing skills OR learn hand building and sculpting skills. This will allow them time to master the skills taught. The tuition covers the cost of clay, glazes and firing that are made onsite.

This course is a life-based drawing class that focuses on learning the different elements of shading, proportion, and composition. Students will explore techniques using graphite, blending tools, and charcoal to bring three dimensionality to their work. The course is designed to teach the students how to train their eye to see a three dimensional still life and draw the subject using line, space, and depth to elevate their work into realism. Classes range from Introduction - Intermediate - Advanced Graphites. Intermediate Graphites teaches students how to draw proportionately while introducing depth into their work like foreground, midground, and background. Classes are an hour and a half long once a week. Classes are an hour long once a week. The average duration for a student in this class is based on their own work and how well they are able to grasp techniques taught. With every term come a series of new projects.
