Ramona, Lewisburg Mom
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed Bluebird's creative programs--use of imagination and interdisciplinary learning are so seamlessly integrated...We whole-heartedly recommend this experience for young learners!
Bluebird Atelier offers facilitated practice for the artist in us all, from toddlers to teens, and grown-ups too!
Early childhood groups offer exploratory opportunities. Project-based courses are adapted to the individual based on the skills, goals, and interests of each artist.
Self-expression begins with embracing your unique viewpoint. Bluebird starts with the artist's interests and one-of-a-kind point of view and builds upon it, honing their distinctive style.
Bluebird is a safe and nurturing environment for taking creative risks. Students practice advanced methods of critique, as well as appreciating their own work and growth.
Bluebird emphasizes the process of creating, and values an outcome that reflects the artist's vision. Along the way, students learn to embrace mistakes and the "beautiful mess" that is creating art.
By appreciating the experience, the end product becomes all the more meaningful to the artist.
Classes are designed for optimal focus with sustained work-time to achieve a flow state. We practice in a screen-free, work-ready environment. In this way, classes serve to improve creative skills while having a calming and freeing effect on the mind.
Collaboration is also key, as we are social learners. Bluebird courses are designed to encourage independent work as well as collaborative skill-building.
AREAS OF FOCUS
An exploration of fine arts media, techniques and concepts, with the goal of refining the young artist's unique style and point of view.
Courses in fashion, toy design, and textiles guide young artists through the design process, from idea generation and prototyping to testing and production.
Process art experiences in which younger children are exposed to a variety of multi-sensory materials to create with. Children are encouraged to fully engage with the materials (i.e. create a wonderful mess, which we clean up so you can relax and be present with your little artists!)
Literacy & Humanities
Courses that offer a creative approach to learning literacy for younger children, and art history and culture courses for upper elementary students.
Fun & Parties
Special studio events and private parties are designed for pure fun through the joy of creating as a community.
