After-School Art Club. A great stress reducer.
After-School Art Club for Grades K thru 6th.
The school year can be a busy time for families with homework and so many extracurricular activities like sports and music. I want to speak to parents with kids who aren’t into athletics and who’d rather be doodling and drawing instead of well, just about anything else. As one of those kids–all grown up now– the act of creating art is actually a “down” time. It’s not just one more thing on my list that needs to be done everyday; it’s what helps me get through every day. My creative side actually helps me relax and unwind—in other words, it de-stresses me, still does.
For parents with super creative kids who LOVE art and can’t seem to get enough of it—I applaud you for supporting their habit. I know it’s not cheap. Art supplies are pricey and their drawings are probably stacking up everywhere. Mike Q., Kirkwood resident and father of two girls who also LOVE art, says, “Yucandu is an open and collaborative experience, which is just what our oldest daughter needs. It’s hard to find something that a 6 1/2 year old can be passionate about. And Yucandu is the place where she can do it; it’s by far her favorite place. She LOVES it. Her real passion is art right now.” “The paint covered tables alone say come in and make something. We certainly don’t have this at home.”
So, keep putting art supplies in front of your kids. Sign them up for classes and workshops if this is their passion at this stage. Sign them up for our After School Art Club if they love art. Worried about over-scheduling your artsy kids? There is an actual relationship between making art and stress reduction. During class, you can see the kids arrive a little wound up, even a tense. But once we start our project and they get drawing or painting or just being in a creative atmosphere, they soon relax. Some kids get chatty, some quiet with concentration, but they all get into it and time flies by for them to the point that they’re always surprised when it’s over. Yucandu Art club is designed to be challenging in the sense we try new things or take traditional projects to new skill levels, but these artsy kids LOVE this challenge and thrive with the amazing materials we provide them.
If our Art Club doesn’t fit into your schedule or budget, we have plenty of other opportunities. First, the open-studio is always available to you. For only $5/hour or $12/day, the studio fee gets you use of our tools and space, our assistance and help AND you get to leave the mess behind—talk about a stress reducer! If you want this to be a family time, the studio fee is always half-price 6-8pm Thursday thru Saturday evenings. Click here for more information about Open-Studio.
Yucandu also has several workshops you can sign them up for. Always check in to see what the next workshop is for your kids. Kids’s Art Night Out is always in the evenings on the first Friday of each month, holiday workshops for Valentines, Mother’s Day, Christmas and so many more.
