We are planning to host classes outdoors this summer. While we don't know exactly what this will look like, we are hopeful we can provide in-person arts education in a safe manner. Classes will be posted on our website and Facebook page soon. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at what we have planned!
June 23, 24, & 25: Tie-Dye with Casey Bemis
This class will be presented three times and is intended as an activity families can do together! We will be ble to safely host 2-3 families each day.
Learn the art of resist dyeing. Students will be shown how to fold, twist, and bind fabric then apply colorful dyes to create unique wearable tie-dye creations.
June 30-July 2: Clay & Sculpture classes with Kathy Rogers
There will be two offerings this week! Turtles and Frogs for ages 6-9 and Fairytale Castles for ages 10-17. Both classes will explore how to shape clay using hand-building techniques with coil embellishments, applied textures, and nature printing.
July 7-9: Looking At Landscape With More Than Your Eyes with Laurel Geis
In this class, students will work from the local landscape, but not be tied to a direct image. We will focus on our senses and be inspired by sounds, smells, light, the weather, and how we feel to create a series of mixed-media landscapes. Students will learn how to use a variety of painting and drawing materials to create a number of sketches and a finished final artwork.
July 14-16: Watercolor Journaling 101 with Michelle Kunze
This class is a beginner's guide to journaling with watercolors. Students will choose their own subject then learn different tips and techniques on starting a journal. Instruction will include how to prep a base layer, mark-making, color, composition, and using mixed-media painting techniques to create a one of a kind journal.
July 21-23: Animal Sculptures with Casey Bemis
Learn tips and techniques on modeling animal forms using self-hardening polymer clay.
July 28-30: Mixed Media Painting with Laurel Geis
Create an exciting mixed-media work on a panel using digital image transfer techniques. Students will start with digital image transfers on their panels then enhance the composition with paint and collage materials.
