‘At the Art Studio’ offers holiday break workshops for local children Dec. 27 and 28 and Jan. 2 and 3

Artwork on display at Tyler Hall.

OSWEGO - This past November, At the Art Studio (ATAS) participants had a closing reception for the artwork created during its fall workshop. Parents and friends gathered in SUNY Oswego’s Tyler Hall to view the artwork on display.

First- through second-graders created artwork inspired by famous children’s book illustrators. Third- through fifth-graders created a variety of projects including: Day of the Dead shadow box, ink-blob watercolor characters, collages, and abstract paintings. Sixth- through 11th-graders concentrated on making projects inspired by the imagery and art of ancient Egypt.

Registration is now open for At the Art Studio’s holiday break session. New this year, ATAS will offer two separate sessions Dec. 27-28 and Jan. 2-3. Open to children and young adults in first through 12th grades. Students can sign up for one day, one session, or both sessions. Cost is $35 per day or $60 a session. Classes start at 10 a.m. and go until 3 p.m., with pre- and after-care available. Program fee includes all material costs. Nutritious snacks will be provided, though students are asked to bring a lunch.
