Contigo is a program for kids in grades 3 through 9 that incorporates the study of
art from around the world. Classes in drawing, painting and crafting are offered
in 8 week sessions on Tuesdays for grades 6-9 and Mondays for grades 3/4/5.
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
Twenty-five percent of the proceeds after expenses for Contigo goes to help children
in need through World’s Window.
