New ArtSeed Cottage Opportunities

Cool Beginnings: ArtSeed offers lessons for youngsters, three to seven years of age, to explore their unique worlds through drawing, painting, and printmaking. The journals, postcards, maps, and other things that will be created will be memorable evidence of the thought and effort put into their making. (To be confirmed.)

Coloring Sound: Through drawing, painting, and printmaking, these gatherings will give eight to fifteen year olds chances to interpret music and natural sound through art-making. Finished works may function as inventive “scores” to be performed, or simply to preserve an aural experience in a visual form. The historical roots of interdisciplinary art forms will be explored individually and in collaborative projects.

Coaching and Portfolio Building: These one-on-one sessions, or small classes, will help students and artists of all ages to achieve specific goals such as building a portfolio to apply to a school or exhibition possibility. Or, they can be more personal; for example, learning to discipline oneself, set up a work- station at home, or write an artist statement.

Another great possibility: You are invited to stop by the ArtSeed Cottage in Diamond Heights for a cup of tea, a look at our library, or simply to take in the spectacular view of downtown San Francisco. Give a call and we’ll meet you there.

For details, cost of lessons, and scholarship information, please be in touch with the ArtSeed office. Contact information is given below.
