Visual Arts at Chimney Lakes
Led by Ashlee Collins
This course has reached capacity, but a waitlist is available.
Students must be enrolled at Chimney Lakes Elementary School to register for this course. This course introduces students to the elements of art and principles of design, which are the building blocks of creating a work of art. At the same time, students are introduced to the process of creating fiber and textile arts as functional and traditional pieces. They are encouraged to engage and persist through the process of their creativity. Students will work individually and collaboratively.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
This afterschool program is supported by the Kids Hope Alliance.
