The Green Elephant Arts Enrichment program began in 2014 by April Hohne and Rachael Fuller. Our arts program currently serves pre-school and homeschool students in Nashville and surrounding counties. The curriculum includes visual art and general music instruction, giving students the foundation to continue their studies further as they get older.
Our homeschool class currently takes
place every Thursday
from 10am-12pm at Edgefield Baptist Church in East
Nashville. In this class, the children create artwork using the elements and
principles of art, including: color, line, shape, texture, value, etc. We
explore and identify art in our daily lives and environment, in addition to
studying various famous artists. The children create art using mediums such as
chalk pastels, paint, watercolors, and oil pastels. The children also explore
music and movement with a strong focus on steady beat, rhythm, singing
melodies, and reading musical notation. We have a small musical performance at
the end of each semester. The fee for the homeschool class is $20/class with
sixteen classes in the semester, coming to a total of $320/semester.
occur on the first and third Fridays of each month from
9am-10am. Each class has a theme for the day, and the students create art and
participate in musical activities based on the theme. The children have the
opportunity to paint (get messy!), draw, dance, and sing. The
fee for the preschool class is $10/class with eight classes in the semester,
coming to a total of $80/semester.
Our next workshop, Valentine’s
Day Kids’ Night Out,
will take place on February 14th from 5pm-8pm. Children will participate in
many Valentine’s themed
crafts, games, and songs. The children are encouraged to bring their favorite
stuffed animal, doll, or toy as a date! Cost for this workshop is $25/child.
In the future, we hope to open our
own children’s art
studio, expanding our class offerings to homeschool, preschool, workshops, and
after school classes and offering open art play, as well.
