Picasso's Basement LLC is a new art enrichment program for all ages based in Fanwood NJ. Owner and Instructor Paula Cohen-Martin has been an illustrator for 20+ years and a mom who loves working with kids for 13+ years.
Paula has a BFA from Parson's School of Design, a Certificate of Eligibility to teach Art in New Jersey and has been running a home-based art program for 2 years.
She's excited to finally bring Picasso's Basement (which was literally run in a basement!) above ground and into the town park recreation buildings, schools, and homes.
Picasso's Basement is available for schools, kids and tween parties, senior groups, libraries, and scouting groups.
Paula's first two classes being offered through the Fanwood Recreation Department are "Make Your Own Comic Book" class and "Art That's Eco-Smart".
In the Comic Book Class the children will learn to create visual stories, put them in comic book format, get drawing instruction, ink like the professionals, and get their books printed by a real comic book publisher.
In Art That's Eco-Smart kids will learn the hip new art of upcycling, turning the everyday into the extraordinary and making incredible pieces from cereal boxes, detergent containers, cigar boxes, and more.
Classes start the first week of October and registration is going on right now through the Fanwood Borough website:http://www.fanwoodrecreation.org/programs-children/arts-crafts
Keep your eye out for more as Picasso's Basement adds an afternoon preschool class shortly.
