Sketch Book-Making, Decorative Papers and Collage
Students will create beautiful marbled paper and other exciting decorative papers and make a hand-made sketch book. Visit the nearby beach and collect shells, small driftwood, and other objects to add to your creations. Drawing will be emphasized throughout the week.
Painting With Watercolors and Acrylics
Students will learn how to work with paints and washes while simultaneously being encouraged to develop their imagination and story-telling skills. Part of class time will be spent outside on the beach, sketching and painting the landscape around us.
Functional Clay Projects
Learn to build functional mugs and bowls using basic hand-building techniques such as slab construction and plaster forms. Students will learn different finishing techniques using clay slips and bright colored glazes.
Clay Head Wall Tiles
Students will create whimsical clay head wall tiles using newspaper armatures, clay slabs and coils, rubber stamps and glazes.
Wood and Found Object Sculptures
Inspired by the work of artist Louise Nevelson, students will create unique 3D sculptures made out of cut wood shapes and found objects. The pieces will be glued on to a board and finished with a solid color.
