Art journaling is an open-ended form of art on loose paper or in a bound journal where the focus is on the process of creating and self-expression rather than a particular end result. Drawing, mark-making, writing, painting, and collage are all one component. Each week we will explore a new weekly journal prompt and spend time being creative.

Now a Scituate resident, Sue Casey was an art teacher in Attleboro Public Schools for over 31 years. Art has always been a large part of her life - thinking about, looking at, making, and teaching art for as long as she can remember. Every day she feels inspired by the beauty of nature and the light and color that surround her.
Please note: Class time is 1:30-3:30 PM to accommodate late release times from Gov. Winslow, Eames Way and Daniel Webster Schools. However, students are welcome to arrive at 1PM and enjoy snack and journaling time with the teacher from 1-1:30PM.
During the three 10-week sessions, students in grades 1-5 will enrich their artistic expressions in a fun and nurturing environment where children feel comfortable expressing their unique talents to create works of art. Students will work with a wide variety of media including drawing, painting, collage, sculpture and more. Art from the world’s varied cultures and the contributions of major artists will serve as inspiration.
This 10-week class is for high school students who wish and are required to present a portfolio of artwork to supplement their college applications. Working in a supportive, small group, studio setting, the objective of the class is to help students start to develop and refine their portfolios as well as to develop skills that will prepare them to be successful in a college art program. The students will also be guided in creating key pieces that specific art schools, such as the Rhode Island School of Design require.
