More Information about Arts Benicia After School:
Our upcoming multi-week workshop at Mary Farmar will focus on drawing and painting. This workshop will be led by Les Overlock. Les is a well-known artist in Benicia who has taught in school settings for 37 years. He loves to paint animals, faces, buildings, trains, planes and automobiles. He loves color and promotes painting outside the lines. His focus in education is to make the experience memorable and a building block for all future work. The enjoyment of art is experienced in the way Les enjoys his teaching. It’s a fun ride!
Inspired by STEAM guidelines, projects are designed to encourage critical thinking and problem solving. Lessons include plenty of opportunity for creative expression.
ABAS is sponsored by The Benicia Unified School District.
