Free Art Class FlyerPRINTMAKING #13020

The art of creating a “Print” can be accomplished in many ways. In this informative class several techniques will be explored that are forms of “Relief Printing” and “Planographic” (flat plate) Printing”. Our young artist will create several images that can be developed into cards as well as framed artwork.

FIREWORKS DRAGONS #13021

In this unique sculpture class, as the Fourth of July approaches, each student will be guided through paper construction techniques that will expand their understanding of engineering techniques. A “Dragon’s Head” will be created by each participant, but not an ordinary dragon. These dragons will be theme based to celebrate the Fourth of July, as well as the explosiveness of a holiday firework.

COLORED PENCIL SUMMER #13022

As summer is off to a great start we want to take time to draw a “Lazy Summer Landscape” in colored pencil. A trip to the beach, or camping in the woods, or seeing a National Landmark are all summer images that deserve to be captured. Participants will be learning about different colored pencil techniques such as cross hatching, layering, scumbling, stippling and burnishing.

PAPER MACHE SCULPTURE #13023

Paper mache is a recognized high level art media in most countries of the world. In this two-hour class, participants will design and finish a sculpture in-the-round. Each person will create an armature and then add the skin that is paper mache. Each participant will discover that this paper-and-paste art media is not as messy as some people think. The instructor, David Smith, is a master of the medium.
GRADES: 1st - 6th

SUMMER'S END IN PASTEL #13024

As summer ends, and school starts, our art focus will be on the beauty of the coming fall. Students are taken in a new direction with their art as they learn that pastels are used in a very different way than crayons. Fall images will bloom as techniques such as blending, layering erasing and stencil are used.
GRADES: 1st - 6th

PAINTING ON CANVAS BOARD #13025

On of our most popular activities is painting on a canvas board. Participants will work on an image of their own choice. Instruction focuses on composition principles, different ways to apply paint to the canvas surface and finishing with attention to detail and the story that the painting relays.
