Sketch Club

Eleven elementary school children pose outside of their school after a Sketch Club session.

Explore your inner artist!

Sketch Club is for students grade 2-5 who are interested in tapping in to their creativity and learning about how art creates and speaks to the world around them. Each week, students will be introduced to new art projects that provide opportunities   to learn more about themselves and those around them. Students engage in open-studio art-making which allows for youth voice and choice and encourages them to make decisions about their art, just like artists do.   They get the opportunity to explore works of art from artists of various backgrounds and cultures in TAM’s collection for inspiration. From there, they can draw on their own life experiences and emotions as they create.
