The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library will offer a series of art classes for students in grades 2 - 6 taught by Alexis Starke. Classes will be held on Saturdays from 12:30 - 1:20 PM. The first class will be held on Saturday, February 3, 2018.

Classes will cover a variety of materials and techniques in drawing, painting, design, sculpture, mixed media, collage, printmaking, and crafts. Inspiration will be taken from the greats of art history, contemporary artists, and our beautiful surroundings in Piermont on the Hudson River. Creativity will be developed in a supportive environment. And we always have fun!

Classes are free and all materials are included. Older clothes and/ or smocks (provided by the library or by students) are recommended. Please arrive to class a couple of minutes early to put on a smock and get settled. Classes are held outside when possible in the Library's gardens and in adjacent parks and open space. These are drop-off classes. As art projects typically take several weeks, attendance at class each week is important. The class will culminate with a Student Art Show and Artists' Reception in the Library's beautiful galleries. Please feel free to e-mail alexis.starke@gmail.com with any questions. Please phone the library at 359-4595 to register.
