Our Mission Statement

 God has a plan for every student in the visual arts. Pinwheel Art School has a primary mission to provide Visual Art students with the technical and creative skills necessary to achieve personal growth and confidence in their creative learning. Pinwheel Art School believes that primary art education is best taught from a Classical model in teaching the fundamentals in the individual art making  processes as well as an introduction to some practicalities about the different art trades in the marketplace including digital media and topics like Modern Art. Also, Pinwheel’s art programs are designed with projects, exercises, and lessons that demonstrate to the art student what to expect from college art programs and career goals. These classes aim to be a launching pad for the college-bound student to develop a well-prepared and exceptional college-entry portfolio towards an arts degree but also to educate them as to how their art skills may assist them in communication skills and supporting academic studies.  

Our Curriculum

The curriculum introduces soft skills that have broad applications in their art studies such as time management, risk management, perseverance, collaboration, creative problem solving and self-expression. Through our Judaeo-Christian Worldview, our students are encouraged to develop the ability to engage with current social & cultural movements, identify their creative influences, clearly articulate conceptual content as well as receive and deliver constructive criticism. The PAS program teaches students, through conventional processes  as well as a variety of analog and digital media, how these core skills apply in a broader context. The PAS team educates our students about the essential role of creativity, art and design in our rapidly changing world. Through special workshops, competitions, as a collegiate liaison we help foster student's success in attainment of academic fundamentals helping them prepare for secondary institutions and lifelong learning.

TEACHING ART IN GWINNETT  Homeschoolers in Gwinnett and surrounding cities have more choices now in quality art classes for the school year and throughout the summer. Here’s a list of affordable but valuable and versatile art classes. 

This list was started by a homeschooling dad, Victor Kennedy, whose daughter, at the time was a gifted young artist in her junior year. While teaching art classes to other homeschoolers, Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy started devoting time interviewing and researching colleges and resources of other creative avenues to help prepare their own daughter for an art studies program or a career in art in case that's what she wanted to pursue. 

Since the higher-learning road has become more and more expensive, parents now are examining the options for their high school grads with ever more scrutiny.  Some parents have started searching alternative ideas as a preparation of a career in art. In 2016, in order to help their daughter find the career training that was best for her, the Kennedys started collecting interesting resources that claimed to help detour the expensive college program, or at least help make the investment easier. Thus, searching for training programs offered by companies that offer certificates or at least substantial real world training that should lead to a professional portfolio, or better, an internship or real job. The Kennedys plan on sharing what they learn on their blog  We can keep this list updated each year to help all those creative young people out there find their way towards a career in art. Mr. Kennedy’s list can be accessed at:

In this class the student will learn about working as a team in coming up with a good idea that promotes a good cause.

We will choose a venue to try out our project like Suwanee Arts in the Park later on in which team members can try out the project by taking turns wearing the suit as they walk around the park. The team will review and discuss the project by critiquing effectiveness the project has achieved through the venue, and work on revisions and solutions to make it better and more effective in raising awareness for the cause. Projects involve How to Concept, Build and Promote an Advertising Campaign for Your Ministry/Business.

Year Round Art Classes

all ages

YRA classes scope:

There are many who recommend that all kids should be involved in some sort of creative encounter with the arts; music, drama, visual art, or creative writing. Year-Round Art classes help fill that need. Below is an example of 

one year of creative visual arts classes offered under Mr. Kennedy. 

When we break it down, how many work days do our kids attend school in Gwinnett?

Our kids are responsible for 9 months-worth of school. Within those 9 months, we have approximately 180 Monday-through-Friday workdays. Gwinnett County requires 180 weekdays which divides up to 36 weeks-worth of Mondays through Fridays

.

Sometimes, our kids do schoolwork over their weekends, and although there are the overachievers  there are underachievers as well. It is fair to mention those high schoolers who are employed during the week and/or weekend. And it is right to account for those days that are less productive throughout the school week in most student’s lives. Just standing in lines throughout the day, moving around campus, riding the bus, etc., is said to be a efficiency-depleter. Nevertheless, it is probably safe to say that occasional unproductive time throughout the school week 

cancels out weekend school work. 

Common knowledge has it that within the twelve months of a calendar year, there are 240 weekdays which divides into 48 weeks. A school year is 180 of those 240 weekdays.

2015 – 2016  school year has 9 mos. x 20 days= 180 days/36 weeks

So, in a good scenario, a school child will have at least one class of hands on art in her week. Best case scenario would have the child taking music as well, and maybe a concentrated studio or other involvement of his interest in the arts like drama or pai

Engraving
INTAGLIO PRINTMAKING

Intaglio comes from the Italian word intagliare, meaning, “to incise.”  In intaglio printing, an image is incised with a pointed tool or “bitten” with acid into a metal plate, usually copper or zinc.  The plate is covered with ink and then wiped so that only the incised grooves contain ink.  The plate and a dampened sheet of paper are then run through a press which applies pressure to create the print.  Usually the paper sheet is larger than the plate so that the physical impress of the plate edges, or the platemark, shows on the paper.  The ink on the print tends to be slightly raised above the surface of the paper.

February 

Linocuts
RELIEF PRINTMAKING
In the Relief printing technique, the artist sketches a composition on a block of material and then cuts away pieces from the surface, leaving a raised area which will receive the ink.  A roller is then used to apply ink to this raised surface and the image transferred to paper with a press or by hand burnishing or rubbing.  Since the recessed, cut-away areas do not receive ink, they appear white on the printed image.  Relief prints are characterized by bold dark-light contrasts and an impress into the paper of the inked lines.  The primary relief techniques are woodcut, wood engraving, and linocut.

Sequential Art I

CARTOON CHARACTER

Grades: 4rd through 12th

Students will build a comic campaign in the sequential arts discipline as they communicate their ideas through cartooning while learning some sketching, brainstorming, and  graphic design techniques.

Such things will be explored such as ways of developing story content & creating graphic (visual) flow, inking techniques, and much work on character development. There will be high regards to the development of the one-panel and three-to-four panel cartoon strip.Regarding age: Generally, elementary students participating in this class who apply themselves with interest in the projects can be quite successful in learning certain skills that we might think that they are too young to master and gaining confidence and enthusiasm to boost their continued creative path. The student is guided through the different projects to help them get the best results that can be achieved. The younger artist, usually grades 4th through 8th, has a slightly different supply list than the older student.

July: Drawing Better I: REGARDING ELEMENTS & PRINCIPLES of DESIGN

All ages will benefit from this class. The younger kids or beginner artists will be introduced to techniques, principles, and skills of which the intermediate and advanced students will practice, relearn, and take to the next levels. Everyone has a lot of fun in this class because it is not intimidating nor is it boring. Each class has some review, fun, warm-up exercises, and a new and interesting project each week or two introducing a new concept in drawing, including projects that involve drawing from a statue, or exploring some new way to draw with a new tool like charcoal or ink. Sometimes we will even create out of clay or paper something to draw. The boundaries for this drawing class are far reaching and any student should acquire a good toolbox of techniques and other knowledge by the end of this class.
