Explore the Art of Ancient Greece!

Cassandra‚Äôs Summer Art Program is a unique experience where children learn about art, nature and history outside. Young artists make art in an evergreen forest or while sitting on the sandy shore of the Mississippi River. Children are outside all the time creating art, reading books and relaxing in nature. Cassandra also teaches mindfulness and offers sensory toys. This summer we will explore the art of Ancient Greece by studying Cycladic clay sculpture, Minoan frescos and how ancient Greek children lived.  

Each week-long program will have different projects:

July 8-12  FULL to students, OPEN to Interns

Internships:
Internships with Cassandra Monson are unique because interns assist Cassandra AND have time to make their own artwork! Expectations include arriving on time at 9:30 to help sharpen pencils, clean watercolor trays and help younger students with their morning art. It is also expected that interns will stay until 3:30 and help with clean up: wash brushes, clean the yard and organize class materials. Throughout the day younger children may need help getting ready for the hike, drawing a lion or sculpting in clay. In between their work helping others they will have time to learn from Cassandra how to draw, paint and sculpt. This is a great opportunity to add to their resume and Cassandra has had many students go on to work at the Walker, Art Institute, Daycare Programs and Teaching. Cassandra will provide reference letters as needed! Interns also participate in our gallery art show.
