In Clay Class, we explore how a lump of mud becomes a shiny ceramic object. Each week students are introduced to a basic hand-building technique. What they make using the skill of the week is entirely up to the student! This class supports our theme of the school year, Sustainability and the Environment as clay is derived directly from the and is one of the most natural materials you can use to make art.

Sensory Exploration at Compass Arts

For the second year running, Romina and Gina are excited to continue this STEAM-based experience on Friday mornings for 3-5 year olds. Using a thematic approach, students will be guided in magical explorations of music and art through stories, music, movement, art-making, and natural materials. STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) concepts will be interwoven throughout the arts experiences, giving children a multifaceted understanding of the world around them that is developmentally on target for their age.


This year, we are offering a one-hour open play extension before class! Students enrolled in this option will arrive at 9 am to participate in open ended, thoughtfully curated play stations, and enjoy a “fruit cafe” snack area. At 9:45 am we will wrap up and prepare for the arrival of the rest of the class at 10 am. This extension is only available to students registered in Elements and is an additional $10 a week.

For both returning and new students! Explore the fundamental process of character creation using shape construction to develop the form of the character, while considering the personality of the character and how it informs the shape. Students will turn these characters into a cartoon drawing with a world created entirely by them.  A full character has a world in which they live and students will explore perspective as a tool to build their character’s individual world. From there they will introduce these characters into a story of their own creation as they explore the language of comics and sequential storytelling. Perfect for kids interested in comics, cartooning, animation and storytelling. Rate includes a pad of specialty drawing paper for each student.
