Enrichment Course Descriptions

SPRING 2020 ENRICHMENT (March 30 – June 12, 2020) – ONLINE ONLY!

Regular Spring enrichment classes have been cancelled  or postponed until at least April 27, 2020 due to the Covid 19 mandated school closure.

However, the following classes will be offered ONLINE so that students can continue to take virtual enrichment classes during the closure:

  • Mondays: Little Coders K-2, Drawing & Painting Exploration 2 -5 (now open to 2nd graders!)
  • Tuesdays: Boom Dance Exploration K-3, Mandarin K-3, Chess 2-5 (new day for online classes only)
  • Wednesdays: Game Development (Int/Adv) 2-5, Jump Rope 1-5

If your student is looking for fun and creative activities in the afternoon after a long day of homeschooling, I’d highly recommend giving one or more of these online classes a try.  In particular, Jump Rope and Drawing & Painting Exploration are both terrific classes, plus very good value! Not sure about if online classes are a good fit for your student? All classes have a satisfaction guarantee so your student take a trial class for free. There are still spots available for all online classes, so please contact the Enrichment Coordinator as soon as possible to enroll before the session starts on March 30th!

Art Wizards – Everyone Can Draw! Grades K – 5 Fridays to 3:30 PM
In Art Wizards, kids learn to draw the things that kids find exciting. The most important part of learning to draw is learning to see. That’s where we start. We give them all the information they need to be successful, but not so much that we stifle their imagination or limit their opportunities. They learn that a problem can have more than one solution, that small changes can have a big effect, and that there is more than one way to look at the world around them. With consistent and ongoing practice throughout the school year, our students are amazed at the progress they make. Projects include fish, birds and animals of all kinds, people, landscapes, still life, mythical creatures, movie characters and cartoons. We show them how to break down a scene or character so it comes out looking like what they intended. We show them how easy it can be when they know how to use chalk and oil pastels, when it’s better to use colored pencils and where markers and watercolor fit in. It’s easy! It’s exciting! It’s rewarding! Class limit 16.
