Coop Studios — Art Lessons for Kids in Ulster County, NY

Art instruction for children by Rosendale illustrator Lisa Thiesing.

Coop Studios, Rosendale NY

Coop Studios in Rosendale, NY is happy to be offering children's art lessons. The studio is a charming, light-filled, renovated chicken coop where creativity and imaginations are free to develop and expand.

We explore a variety of techniques and materials based on traditional drawing, painting and sculpture. Art instruction is geared to age levels. Group classes are now available for children in grades K - 2 and 3 - 5.

After School Art Classes In The Mid-Hudson Valley

Art classes meet in small groups of students. We explore the basics of drawing and painting using a variety of materials. We often start with contour drawing to help the kids really see what they are drawing. Children use collage, charcoal (black & white drawings), water color, paint, etc. From my training as a Montessori teacher, projects follow the interests of the kids, so we don't have a strict lesson plan.

Because I am a book illustrator, the classes promote visual literacy. Students often read, look at, illustrate, and perhaps write some stories so they can learn how words and pictures work together.
