From PreK through teens we offer after-school and weekend classes, in ten-week segments. Each segment is a theme-based approach to building knowledge about, and through, the arts in a studio environment with an end event of the students curating their own artists' exhibition. Granville Studio of Visual Arts classes art built around two exclusive curricula developed here in our Granville studio; Young Explorers™ and the Journey Program™.
Young Explorers™ and the Journey Program™
Young Explorers lays the foundation for a lifetime of creative thinking while including lessons in science, history and math as each program revolves around an new theme such as Cultures Around the World, Space Exploration, Under Water Worlds and Dinosaurs.
The Journey Program incorporates art history and art production in numerous mediums while meeting national and common core state standards in visual arts and promoting college and career readiness in a three-part chronological series composed of The Art of the Self-Portrait, DreamWorlds and The Ripple Effect.
An innovative core component to all GSVA classes is the curatorial practice piece in which students develop critical thinking and aesthetic discernment skills. Each student artist collaborates with other artists in designing, installing, curating and hosting an exhibition of their own work.
Children ages 4 to 6 years will enjoy these classes and parents are invited to join them and learn together on family day. Each series revolves around an interesting theme. Past themes have included Cultures Around the World, Space Exploration, Under Water Worlds and Dinosaurs.
The GSVA Youth Journey Program, for 1st to 6th grade students, is a three part chronological series composed of Journey The Art of the Self-Portrait, Journey DreamWorlds and The Ripple Effect. Each ten week series is a theme-based approach to building knowledge about and through the arts in a studio ...
Like all of our programs, the GSVA Teen Journey is designed to cultivate each of our student's unique artistic vision while nurturing their creative self-esteem. Teens thrive in our studio, where they experience meaningful learning in a fun, accepting and hip environment.
