Click here for a Contigo Registration Form


Contigo is a program for kids in grades 2 through 8 that incorporates the study of art from around the world. Classes in drawing, painting and crafting are offered in 8 week sessions on Mondays for grades 6 through 8 and Wednesdays for grades 2 through 5.

Kids learn to paint in the style of the great European impressionists, experiment with water color, and enjoy pottery painting utilizing Native American, Mexican, and African designs.  Drawing skills become enhanced with age as students move from line and shape to techniques for creating volume, showing distance and representing perspective in a composition.  Students are also exposed to figure drawing.  Middle School students will be given more complex projects.

Following each 8 week session, the students' artwork is displayed at an exhibit at Perfect Blend, where guests can enjoy coffee and pastry while viewing the kids' beautiful creations.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds after expenses for Contigo goes to help children in need through World’s Window.
