North River Arts Society follows the Marshfield Public School calendar and cancellation policy.
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.
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.
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.
Lily is a recent 2021 graduate of Holy Cross where she studied Psychology and Studio Art. She has been involved with North River Arts Society for the past year teaching various children’s classes. She is working towards her Masters in Social Work to study the role of art and creativity in promoting mental health.
