ARTS PROGRAM (8-12 yrs.)
Sky Village NYC After School Arts Program is a unique opportunity for children 8 years and older to take part in weekly drawing and painting classes at Sky Village NYC, and kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the International Training Center of New York 22-55 31st St. in Astoria, NY (11105).
Inspired by the "Yin Yang Theory" in Chinese Philosophy, we believe that greater physical, mental and emotional balance can be achieved through the practice of various art forms, proper nutrition and meditation. Our children's program will largely focus on visual and martial arts. We will also engage in a daily 10 minute "mind break"or meditation to help our students calm their nervous systems and steady their focus. Children should demonstrate an aptitude for drawing and painting to participate. Art methods that we will focus on include Origami, 3D drawing and painting. Children will be given smocks, pencils, drawing pads, paint brushes and 1 art board per month.
We feel confident with our regular after school routine your child will make significant steps towards regaining a sense of control and adopt systems for long lasting happiness and well being.
If your child is under the age of 10 years old we will arrange for one of our staff to pick your child up from school and walk directly to ITC or Sky Village for the afterschool program. We will be alternating 45 minutes of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (Monday + Wednesday) with 3D drawing and painting (Tuesday + Thursday) each week. On Fridays students will enjoy structured playtime and field games with Daniel Berrios from Unlimited Body NY! A sample of our weekly schedule is listed below.
