Kid Studio

"All children are artists.
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up"

- Picasso

With Seattle Public Schools releasing elementary students early on Wednesdays, lots of parents are looking for after school care. We’ve got you covered!

In Kid Studio, we make fine art FUN ART! This is a course geared toward the artist in every child. Combining art history and art making, we will build their skills and confidence in looking at, talking about, and making art. We will combine exploring and discussing fine art from cultures around the world and making our own projects inspired by what we see. We will learn the basic elements of art- line, color, shape, etc- and apply these early art concepts with what the young artists see and make. In this fun, supportive, and adventurous class, children will experiment with many mediums they may not be familiar with yet, from making shadow puppets, to en plein air drawing, to even learning about abstract art!

About the Instructor

Barbara Alfeo has been working with kids as an art educator for three years. Before moving to Seattle, she taught at the Cantor Art Center and DeYoung Museum. Her background is in art history, and her teaching style uniquely connects critical thinking about visual culture and art-making projects. She has her masters and is ABD toward a PhD in Contemporary Art History from Stanford University, and her dissertation is about feminist art and aging. She couldn't be happier to be making messes and talking to very young artists about what they see!
