Students will have the opportunity to make their very own customized pens out of Sculpey oven-bake clay while learning basic clay sculpting techniques, and how to mix new colors!


Thursday, November 8:   

Students will first learn a basic bookmaking technique, and then use their imagination to create multiple “exquisite corpses” in their books. “Exquisite Corpse” is a game that was used by Surrealist artists to come up with fantastic and often absurd drawings. The students will also learn about multiple Surrealist artists.

1st-3rd graders

Tuesday, October 30:

Students will get the chance to compare and learn about Victorian Houses and create their own drawings using oil pastels. The students will learn about different shapes, lines, and patterns in order to create their dream house.


Tuesday, November 13:

 Students will be inspired by the art of Nam-Jun Paik and his work to create their very own mixed media collages, taking home a unique art piece! 

Fall 2018 Workshops

OCT 6, 10am-2pm: Fused Glass Pendants

This is a drop-in class; no pre-registration required. Stop by the studio anytime between 10am-2pm on Saturday Oct. 6 and learn the basics of glass fusing. Make a small pendant that can be turned into a necklace, keyring or magnet. Each pendant is $12. Children under age 12 are welcome with an adult helper. And because it's World Heart Day, there will be heart millefiore to use in your design if you wish!

OCT 20, 7-9pm: Sip and Screen

  

This will be a 2-hour workshop with instructor Meghan O'Connor exploring the screen printing process. We will apply inks to paper, fabric, and other alternate surfaces to play with layers of color and transparency. We will use pre-made photo stencils, paper stencils, and found textures and other objects to layer imagery. Other possible opportunities: put designs on t-shirts, collaborate with others, and combine images! Oh yes, and there will be some sipping of beverages going on. Pre-register by Oct 15. $40/person.

NOV 17, 1-4pm: Mixed Media Photo Transfer

  

The workshop, taught by instructor Cindy McClellan, explores collage, image transfers, stenciling, found objects, composition and more!
