Fall Session: Spread Your Wings and Roar ART-ventures @ Wells Road School
This art-rageous program is truly like a trip to the zoo. Design Stuffed Teddy Bears, create Owl Paintings on canvas, and sculpt Clay Peacocks with zany feathers. Color real Rubber Duckies, paint Ceramic Bunny Banks and make Wooden Animal Puzzles in the style of Oaxacan alebrijes. Even travel back in time to paint Dancing Dinosaurs with watercolors. We'll also pop into the zoo food court to create Mixed Media Sandwich Collages and Pasta Relief Clay Tiles and visit the photo booth to make Cardboard Mustache Masks and draw Minion Self-Portraits. On the way out, we'll stop at the gift shop to design Sticker Resist T-shirts, decoupage large Paper Mache Letters, and build wacky Mix-and-Match Character Blocks. Art-explorers experience painting, drawing, sculpting, fabric design, decoupage, collage, and more. A trip to the zoo that you'll never forget! Art explorers bring home exciting handmade souvenirs each week. This is an 8 week session. **No class on 11/22, 12/6, 12/27, 1/10.
Winter Session: Lions and Tigers and Pigs, Oh My! @ Kelly Lane School
Animals have been an important subject for artists all over the world since the beginning of time. From ancient caves to the present day magnificent creatures can be seen in paintings, sculptures, ceramics, mosaic art, fabric design, masks and stained glass. On a wild journey through the animal kingdom, art adventurers discover a multitude of kooky critters-as well as their own creativity--while exploring various techniques, tools, textures and materials. Stained glass giraffes, fabric dogs, ceramic elephants, wooden snakes, colorful dinosaurs, and clay lions with fluffy fiber manes. These are just a few of the animals created during our cool and playful art excursions. Fun facts about each creature are included and masterpieces go home each week. A ROARING good time! **No class on 3/8, 3/22, 3/29, 4/12.
