Hand Puppets

Taught by Sarajane Fellini

Have fun learning how to make simple hand puppets from a variety of scrap fabrics, beads, buttons, sequins, and other bling. Ideas for design could include favorite cartoon or super- hero characters or family pets. Using a box, each student will craft a simple stage for their puppets.

Balance in Art

Tuesday, April 5

1:00 - 4:30pm

Ages 11-15

Taught by Marvin Bolthouse

Balance in Art is one of the basic principles of design. Balance refers to how the elements of art relate to each other within a composition. That is, ensuring that one side of the composition does not seem heavier than the other. Students will learn to define balance in art, identify four different types of balance, and create a work of art that achieves balance. There will be a break halfway through class - students are encouraged to bring a snack!

French Impressionist painter Claude Monet is famous for painting the elaborate pond, Japanese bridge, water lilies, and gardens of his home, Giverny.
