The Art of Play for Families (F22-01)

Instructor: Olivia Janna Genereaux

Families will be immersed in an environment of artistic discovery. Expect the unexpected in solving individual and group challenges. Using traditional materials in unconventional ways, kids and families will gain greater knowledge of the material world that will support the development of abstract thinking.

This class will meet in-person at AVA and, because of our space, is limited to 10 people. It is specifically meant for parents/caregivers and children to take together; when you register below, please choose the total number of children and parents/caregivers who will be attending.

At the age of eight, Olivia Janna Genereaux took her first after school art class-oil painting. She learned to paint from life and to mix colors. She loved the control of building her own world, and found her place. She chose to attend Rhode Island School of design, where she studied textiles and illustration, majored in painting, and graduated in 1986. Four decades later in 2014, she earned a Master's Degree from Lesley University, College of Art and Design. Her love of art is a gift she gives to herself and shares with others everyday.
