Wildcat Art

Wildcat Art is the 8 week long Saturday art program offered every spring, by the University of Arizona School of Art. Now in its 20th year, Wildcat Art classes are structured to encourage students to explore ideas and issues through contemporary (digital media, installation, performance) and traditional art media & practices (drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, design). Experiences are designed specifically for students at each age/grade level from kindergarten through adolescence (K-12). Classes are taught by advanced and graduate art & visual culture education students, in collaboration with art & visual culture education faculty.

Please download the 2014 Wildcat Art Registration Form here to enroll your child(ren) for 2014 Wildcat Art Program.

Previously our curriculum has included experiences in movement and contemporary dance; narrative and storytelling; collographic printing; cyanotype photography; post-modern architecture; clay; stop-frame animation, and other art-making processes. The theme we explored in 2013 was, Identity: Your Interconnected Worlds, which included personal geographies; diversity; our desert environment and sustainability; community; collaboration; and identity! We visited both the Arizona State Museum and the Center for Creative Photography, too (and were visited by local artists)!

Wildcat Art is a non-profit program that serves the Tucson community while providing hands-on teaching experience for advanced undergraduate and graduate art education students.

Classes run every Saturday from 9:30am – 12:00 noon and are held in the School of Art Building on the University of Arizona campus. Our 2014 schedule is as follows: Classes will meet each Saturday, from March 8th through May 3rd, with the exception of March 22nd (our Spring Break). Our exhibition will open on May 10th,  from 11:00 – 1:00.

Our annual exhibition is held at the University of Arizona Union Gallery for students and their families.
