Ripple Effect 2018-2019 Sample.jpg

Ripple Effect is a free, weekly, after-school art class at the Batavia public elementary schools that focuses on integrating science, technology, engineering, and math with art. These classes have been generously funded by a grant from the Dunham Foundation and will be available from 2016-2019. 

The course is completed in 3 sittings - meeting weekly 3 times. Each 3-week session of the course is identical. Students may attend one session per school year.

During the 2018-2019 School Year, the following locations will have Ripple Effect classes available:

  • JB Nelson
  • HC Storm
  • Hoover-Wood
  • Alice Gustufson
  • Grace McWayne - NEW
  • Louise White - NEW
  • Water Street Studio - for private and homeschooled *
  • Batavia Apartments - for resident students only

* Batavia private schools include Holy Cross, Immanuel Lutheran, Batavia Montessori, and John C Dunham STEM School. Home schooled students from the Dunham Fund Service Area (Geneva to Montgomery) are also welcome.

2018-2019 CURRICULUM:

During this 3-week course, students in grades 3-5 will learn about dendrites and fractals in nature and in math. We'll learn two different ways to create dendrites with paint and chemicals. Each 12-student class will create a collaborative piece of artwork that will go on public display. Both art and STEM vocabulary will be reinforced with each fun project. The classes are held at the schools, but the instructors are from Water Street Studios.

FUNDING:

Ripple Effect is generously funded by the Dunham Fund. We are grateful for their mission to enrich lives in our communities.

Policies

Students enrolled in the Ripple Effect are expected to abide by the following rules in order to maintain their place in the program:

  • Attendance for the entire 3-week program is expected. Please do not enroll your child if there are conflicts with scheduling since there is limited space. Respect for teachers, students, and helpers is to be given at all times.
  • Loud or unruly behavior makes learning difficult for others and will not be tolerated.
  • Water Street Studios reserves the right to photograph all enrolled students and their artwork and use these images in promotional materials without the expectation of compensation.

Registration

Online registration for the upcoming school year will begin on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 9 am. See schedule below.
