Youth Art Classes Burlington Parks & Recreation's art instructor offers a range of art classes where students explore their creativity with watercolors, acrylics, pastels and paper crafting. Brush handling, color mixing, paper identification and familiarity with a variety of media forms are among the topics students will learn during their time with her. Deirdre Czoberek's four-week sessions are offered periodically throughout the year. Dierdre holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UW and many years of experience as a teacher of youth art workshops in local schools, museums and libraries. 

Babysitting Basics 
Boys and girls 5th through 8th grade learn all the basic skills needed to be a great, confident babysitter. Topics include: children's different age characteristics, managing behavior, general infant & toddler care, play ideas, safety issues and instruction on what to do in emergency situations. The one-day class is offered periodically throughout the year. Don't see an upcoming date? Feel free to contact our Burlington Parks & Recreation department - we'll make sure you're notified as soon as the next one is scheduled. Instructed by Camp Fire, Babysitting Basics is part of their "Kids Self Reliance" program which aims to encourage a child's self-esteem and feeling of empowerment.

Decoy Carving & Painting  Burlington Parks & Recreation is pleased to offer this class in partnership with the Washington Brant Foundation! Students are introduced to the art of hand-carving a duck decoy--from learning simple carving techniques (which incredibly do not require the use of carving knives) to "texture painting" their decoy with oil paint. Parents can accompany/assist, or sign up for their own decoy alongside their child. Check out the program flyer linked above for current course offerings. Would you like to learn a little more about the Washington Brant Foundation?

Photo composition, editing classes and special outdoor excursions build on your expertise.
