Helen Woodward Animal Extravaganza is for first- through fifth-graders. Meet and pet a variety of animals including mammals, birds, reptiles and bugs. Each class meets a variety of California State Science Standards while focusing on a different animal theme for hands-on education.
The print-making class with holiday projects is for pre-kindergarten through kindergarten. They will use different materials and everyday items to create images on various media (papers, wood, fabric etc.) using inks and paints. In addition, a few classes during this session will be devoted to creating one-of-a-kind, handmade holiday gifts which will come home wrapped and ready. This will be a great opportunity for your child to discover a glimpse of the many printmaking processes through hands-on activities and projects.
A visit from the woodworking bus takes place on a refashioned bus that has been coming to the Community Center for more than 10 years. Children will learn how to saw wood clamped into a miler box, shape and sand it, drill holes, turn screws, and drive nails to create pieces, with an emphasis on safety. Children are equipped with goggles and taught the importance of attention to detail. This class resumes Nov. 26.
Fashion Design was one of our most popular summer classes and is returning by demand. Designers will have the opportunity to sew several creations and learn more about the fashion industry. There will be a runway show at the last class.
