Little Yellow House Art (LYHA) was founded as an Art Enrichment Program that fosters appreciation for art through interactive art classes. For the last 6 years, we have partnered with community organizations, including public and private schools, to offer robust after-school art programs that encourage a love of learning through creating, questioning, and fun.
We offer a variety of themes for art classes and camps hosted at schools and community organizations. Little Yellow House Art is pleased to offer in person custom classes tailored to fit your education strategy and students' needs.
LYHA online flex-courses feature a variety of fun and interactive art classes you can do directly from your own home and on your own schedule. Interact with your teacher, watch and read, and have some fun while creating exciting art.
All LYHA flex-classes offer students a series of instructional videos from the class teacher, individualized assessments of their work, supplemental resources, and a forum to share comments, questions, and their art! You can purchase classes individually or as a 5-series package. We currently offer two 5-series packages.
Enrichment Program Class Themes
Students channel the magical world of Harry Potter using ceramics and learning clay techniques.
Students explore some popular themes from almost 1,000 years of culture and art. Castles, dragons, coats of arms, and more will be created while using basic hand building techniques.
Using their imagination and a lot of clay, students use the method of hand building to bring their favorite characters from the movie and book series to life.
Dragons, Myths, and Monsters . . "Oh my!"
Students explore the world of monsters and mythological creatures by creating their own interpretation with clay. The pieces are created using basic hand building techniques.
Woodworking for Beginners
Students will use fine motor skills to forge a strong connection between the hands and the mind. They are encouraged to try new ideas, exercise their imagination and creativity, and are allowed to make mistakes in a safe environment. Students will learn how to use tools safely, effectively, and (ultimately) independently.
The Shape of Clay
With clay and their knowledge of basic shapes, the students will create different forms of vessels and sculptures by rolling, squishing, slicing, and using basic hand building techniques.
Madhatter's "Clay" Tea Party
Combining the whimsy of Caroll's characters and settling of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," students will use their imagination to bring to life the Madhatter's tea party. From footed teapots and stacked, whimsical tea cups, to unbirthday cakes; re-creating this festive feat will feed the artist in any child.
Little Yellow House Art is pleased to offer programs that work for your organization and students.
