Morning Sessions: 10-12 AM
If You're Happy and You Know it...Get Creative! (for preschoolers)
teacher: Hannah Nebeker
Kids can develop an artistic foundation through cultivating and embracing their individuality. Your preschool-age child will be engaged in creatively open activities that encourage self-expression and nurture imaginative thinking. Each day children will be guided through crafting an art project that embodies his or her very own style. Singing and movement activities will be incorporated throughout the class time to accommodate young attention spans and wiggles.
African Safari (for ages 5 - 8)
teacher: Ireta Sitts Graube
Join me on a safari to Africa to see all the wild animals. We'll draw and paint many of these animals. Watch as your paintings of lions, elephants, gorillas and giraffes and many more animals come to life! You'll love playing with watercolors in this class.
Experimental Animal Sculptures (for ages 4-8)
teacher: Andie Richardson
Each day we will create various animal sculptures using different natural objects such as rocks, vegetables, sticks, wood, etc., combined with paint and other craft supplies. The animals can be real or imaginary, and the focus will be on experimentation and having fun with our hands!
Magic For Minors - Tricks Are For Kids! (for ages 8-12)
teacher: Brett Willyard
Become a real-life magician and learn the secrets magicians don't want you to know. We'll learn simple but powerful card tricks, how to use sleight of hand and work on presentation. We'll put on a magic show the last day.
Story Builders (for ages 9-12)
teacher: Mary Bess Gloria
In this class, the only limit is your imagination. First, we will create a concept for a story, then build the story world in three-dimensional space using items we rescue from the recycling bin combined with decorated papers and fabric. Using rocks, wooden clothespins or paper, we will create the characters. The result will be a portable play land you can continue to build on for the remainder of the summer.
Creative Jewelry Design (for ages 9 - Adult)
teacher: Andrea Mace
Learn how to design and create beaded jewelry. We will explore color theory, learn wire techniques and use hand tools to make one-of-a-kind jewelry including a matching earring, bracelet and necklace set. Bring your own beads if you have them to use in your designs, beads will also be provided as well as hand tools.
Materials fee: $15
Afternoon Sessions 1-4 PM
Canvas Creations (for ages 5 - 12) A daily drop-in class
teacher: Sarah Lippold
The children will collaborate on dyeing large sections of canvas to then be divided and used as backgrounds of our paintings. The children will learn how to make a paint pendulum, tie dye and use basic math to finish and frame their work.
Bookbinding/Printmaking (for ages 9 - adult)
teacher: Barbara Temple Ayres
Discover the fun of simple and complex bookmaking, incorporating papers you've decorated, using simple off-press printmaking techniques. We'll experiment with rubber stamps, bubbles, paste, chalk rubbings, marbling, monoprinting, and make some easy folded books and a sewn hard-bound book.
Introduction to Animation (for ages 8 - 14)
teacher: Dmitri Swain
Explore the extraordinary world of animation. Push the boundaries of your imagination. Think outside the box. And become a storyteller. We will explore cartoon drawing, make a flipbook, a zoetrope animation and also venture into stop motion and 3-D computer topics.
More Than Just a Painting (for ages 12 - adult)
teacher: Susan Simon
Wax painting is filled with spirit and wonder. The class will use melted wax, colors and a heat gun to create, experiment with and explore a world of magic. Class projects will include: treasure boxes, collage, self-portraits and flags.
Yarn Storming (for ages 9 - adult)
teacher: Jessica Sund
This class focuses on the use of yarn and textiles to inspire works using an art form known as "Yarn Storming," which involves creating hand-knit and crocheted pieces to wrap around an inanimate object, such as a pole or door knob, thus making it come to life visually. We will learn basic knitting, crocheting, and stitching techniques to create a fun and artistic installation.
