4Cats Arts Studio

4Cats Arts Studio

We recently had an opportunity to take a workshop called "Robot Polymer Clay" at 4Cats Arts Studio. This particular workshop is for mixed ages and it's one hour long. I like the fact that this was a mixed ages workshop so that my children were able to take it together. My boys were entertained by the owner of 4Cats Oakville, Jennifer. She is very friendly, energetic and my boys were comfortable with her. My first impression of 4Cats Arts Studio is the amazing art work that is displayed at the studio. It's an art collection from the students and curators. See some of the photos below. It almost feels like you are walking into an art gallery.

Jennifer gave my boys a chance to get comfortable by letting them draw for a few minutes. I thought this was a great idea and ice breaker. My boys used up all the paper that Jennifer provided. My 3 year old surprised me by his new style. He didn't do his usual robot drawings. He was just drawing lines randomly, in a very care-free manner. Perhaps he was being inspired by his surroundings.

Robot Polymer Clay end product looks very polished and simple however there were a lot of steps involved. Jennifer guided us through each step and always said "it was no big deal" if we missed a step or did a mistake. I was impressed that my 3 year old had no problems doing exactly what Jennifer asked. I even had a chance to create my own robot with my boys. We did so much and didn't even realize an hour went by. My boys were excited to see their robots go into the oven so that the clay would harden. Jennifer then glued them onto the background board and voila it was completed! At the end of the session my boys were very happy with their robots and so was I!

4Cats offers Camps, Workshops, Birthday Parties as well as Artist of the Month classes, that run for 11 classes. In the Artist of the Month classes, they cover 2 artists a session and students work in a variety of mediums. The students learn the history of the artist and their style. It was really impressive to see some of the students work. 4Cats has a unique approach in teaching children about art and making it fun. It was so great to see both of my boys enjoying themselves and learning something new.
