Art Enrichment Theme

The Spring 2020 theme is THE POWER OF ART

  • It can change you, your life and your future.
  • It can help you connect to your community and locate your identity. 
  • It can change the way you see the world and the way you dare to dream. 

In Monday Art Enrichment during the spring semester, participants (ages 4 to 14) will engage in a visual quest to explore and experience the power of art, and then project their personal visions in an empowering final art show on April 27, 2020. 


The first class parking will be offered at R19 parking lot and parking meters near the CVA building.

We will be offering a drop off and pick up service after the first day and the remaining weeks of classes. The procedure is such:

  • Beginning at 4:00pm teachers from Monday Art Enrichment will be stationed at the doors on the backside of the CVA facing the R19 parking lot. Turn off Terrace Drive at the ‘Brain sculpture’ going down the hill to the parking area behind the CVA, you will be able to circle the parking lot and drop off your child. Your child will then be escorted to his/her classroom by one of our teachers. This procedure will be followed at the end of the day at 5:45pm as well.

About Art Enrichment

Art Enrichment is a hands-on experience and community outreach program offered by the Art Education division at Kent State University.

Each semester, a fresh group of children aged 4-14 come to campus after school to experience inventive, cutting-edge curriculum provided by our undergraduate students in Art Education. The students in the Teaching Practicum course are responsible for teaching children in our after school Art Enrichment classes. Supervised by Senior Faculty Member, Dr. Koon-Hwee Kan, students plan a comprehensive unit of art study and studio mastery for an assigned age group. The lessons follow a primary unit theme set by the instructor for the semester and a secondary theme developed with teammates for each set of required lesson plans. Individually each student plans three lessons that engage children in looking at art, intelligently talking about art, learning art skills, and creating art. The culminating activity is an art show featuring all the artwork created for family and friends to enjoy.
