with Alicia Applegate, Visual Artist and Childhood Educator
& Lee Fogel, Somatic Movement & Arts Educator
Thursdays, Sept 8-Dec 15
*No class 11/24
In Sensory Art Lab, we will craft art projects inspired by sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. We will assemble the very first ‘Salamander Band’ with our very own instruments; We will make sculptures out of paper pulp, emphasizing texture with the forms we make; We will explore interactive art with scents we love…
Alongside our planned curriculum, each child will also be encouraged to come to class with their own big ideas for new projects! Everyone will be assisted through the full art-making process, from brainstorming ideas, to planning structures and materials, to finally putting it all together. This class will provide a fun and engaging experience for your young artist to unlock their creative potential!
Meet your Teachers!
Lee has been teaching arts and somatic practices to people of all ages for nearly 20 years. She holds an MA in Dance and Somatic Wellbeing, a BA in Visual Arts and Dance, and is currently working towards her Franklin Method Teacher certification. Her work with children has taken her into hospitals, schools, community centers and more, using healing and creative arts to promote wellbeing, conflict resolution, and academic learning. She is so thrilled to be offering her home now as a nurturing and creative space for kids.
Alicia is a visual artist, arts educator and founding teacher with Salamander Arts! She received her BFA in Art Education from the Massachusetts School of Art & Design, and is currently obtaining her horticulture certification from the Barnes Arboretum at Saint Johns University. While using ceramics, textiles, painting and more, her passion lies in giving students the basic tools to develop their creativity into something tangible. Her art-making process revolves around collaboration, joy and trusting her intuition, which are principles that integrate seamlessly into her teaching practice.
