Children’s Art Studio Norwich

Following in the tradition of Dartmouth's quarterly academic year, Miss Lani and the Children's Art Studio will honor Winter Break. Classes will resume on January 2, 2018.

Welcome!

If you are the guardian of a child's growth – you are in a position to make or break a life-long potential for creative living! Please be mindful...

Creativity is a way of living! The quality of our lives and our natural survival depend, more than ever, on our ability to discover and nurture our creative potential.

Creative spark is never more intense (and capable of flowering or withering) than in the years of early childhood.

We appreciate children!

We believe we are fortunate
to observe them:

turned on to life...

to themselves...

to others...

to the world...

to art in their hearts.

It is a privilege to be with you.

I am grateful to be teaching and meeting your family.

The Beauty of Pissarro’s People

We shall look at this artist closely and the people and ideas that were important to Camille Pissarro. His self-portrait, painted in 1873, will be delightful to gaze at for portraits are often painted to capture the personality of the person as well as the appearance. Students love to ponder – what a self-portrait reveals – how the artist thinks about him or herself! Yes, we will look in Pissarro’s eyes – what was he like? Do any of your guesses apply? Serious… thoughtful… funny… friendly… athletic… intelligent… active… careful… kind? Pissarro was born in 1830 in St. Thomas, an island in the Caribbean. In 1850, he moved to France, where he spent most of his adult life, built his career and raised his family. He had strong beliefs about the world and was a great believer in personal freedom and the equality of people! Miss Lani has high regard for him and his fellow impressionists. Let’s paint people – we shall experiment with different styles and techniques, much like Pissarro did throughout his career as an artist. Come. Let’s paint!

NOW ACCEPTING ENROLLMENT FOR

2018 Magic Summer Arts Classes

AT THE 1820 HOUSE WITH MISS LANI

3, 4, 5, 6 years old  •  9:00 am-12:00 pm  •  Monday-Friday
Summer Weeks of June 25 - August 27

Magic Summer Arts highlights the process of painting. Classes are created in ways that are active, engaging and exciting. The process is the beauty for the artist, not the outcome.

Goals of the Summer Arts Program with Miss Lani:

  • To encourage children's creativity through art making.
  • To be with them so we might foster their enjoyment through art making.
  • To be sensitive to children and allow them to unfold naturally while with us.
  • To be quiet, wise and gentle as we guide them.

A natural and beautiful "order" is the result.

Mirroring behavior that is warm and gentle characterizes Miss Lani's teaching philosophy. She believes our Children's Art studio in Norwich is located in a place of rural dignity. Our town carries physical embodiments of the past, but also maintains in its very air, a rare serenity of the present.

It is My Hope

From commitment to a new Children's Art Studio and vibrant classes in 2018.

Our untiring emphasis on art education and our collaborative sensitivity to our artistic families...

That the Children's Art programming extends energies, resources and talents in ways that enliven our town of Norwich.

Thank you for including opportunities in the arts in your lives.

Best,

Miss Lani
