The Children's Art Ensemble Project: An art Club for Children in High Park, in association with Colborne Lodge.

"Led by a recent University of Toronto graduate, this intimate group for children aged 7-11 gathers in High Park at Colborne Lodge once a week with the intention to create a relaxed yet inspiring atmosphere for artistic cultivation and expression. Intended to be more of an art club rather than a lesson-driven program, the Children's Art Ensemble is a group in which children are invited to come together and share in art projects and ideas, not merely follow instructions. The workshop leader will offer the children various art mediums and will guide the children along a journey in which the children are encouraged to influence and help shape the artistic development of the afternoon.

The group, centralized at Colborne Lodge in High Park, will have the direct benefit of easy access to rich nature surroundings that will no doubt influence and inspire creative art practices. The students are encouraged to be active participants of the group, sharing their observations of the world around them and their own artistic techniques they stumbled upon while discovering the mediums being utilized that day. Student feedback is essential to the development of the group, as the activities will be shaped according to the particular interests and talents of the group. Group capacity will be kept small ( 8-12 children) to promote group intimacy and individual attention.

Art mediums will include pencil, charcoal, soft pastels and water-color ( including the wet-on-wet technique made popular by Waldorf Education). Children will receive their own personal 'onion' skinned sketchbooks and will use a set of pastels and watercolors to work with throughout the term. Children are to look forward to a healthy group atmosphere that will nurture diverse ideas and creative expressions."

Fall session begins September 28th and runs until November 9th. Space is Limited. Registration Fee: $185.00.
