Art Adventures (F20-OL)

Instructor: Allison Zito

Art Adventures is an opportunity for elementary school artists to discover great works of art, observe nature, and refine their skills while exploring new and familiar art materials, methods and techniques. Students will observe, explore, investigate, make connections and create their own masterpieces inspired by great works of art and the natural world. We will draw, paint, create sculptures, print, make toys, and much more. Lessons will include cultural storytelling, games, history, and lots of fun.

This class will meet online via Zoom.


While this class began on September 30, we are still accepting new sign-ups on a rolling basis. The tuition is pro-rated accordingly.


The tuition includes the price of an art materials kit, which can be picked up at AVA. Discounts are available for families who feel they have the necessary art materials already at home. For families who feel they have the necessary art materials, please call AVA at 603-448-3117 to register. For questions about the necessary materials, please email Karl Neubauer at
