WEEK ONE | June 13 – 17  
9:30am – 3:30pm  3-D SCULPTURE JAM | Kathryn Henderson | Ages 7-12
This all-sculpture class will provide plenty of opportunity to make the imagination come alive with whimsical and rich three dimensional art. We’ll make large and small metal wire and paper mache sculptures that will be painted and decorated with fabric and trim. A small human figure will be made using plaster/webbing strips and then painted to take on the look of metal. Clay-like “sculpy” will be used to create an animal of your child’s choice. We’ll use wood and other materials to further the exploration in three dimensional art. Please bring a snack and sack lunch and wear clothes you can be creative in!
COST: $300             EARLY REGISTRATION: $270


WEEK TWO | June 20 – 24
9:00am – noon  ART ON FABRICS | Deborah Padrick | Ages 6-12
See what a difference it makes painting on fabric instead of paper! Luscious colors come alive on cotton, silk and soft animal sculptures using dyes and acrylics. One day we will tie dye so please bring to class 100% white cotton items to color: pillow cases, t-shirts, socks, dishtowels, whatever you want to brighten up with the very cool look of tie-dye.
COST: $190             EARLY REGISTRATION: $170

1:00pm – 4:00pm  A RAINBOW OF MIXED MEDIA | Deborah Padrick | Ages 6-12

Proportion, perspective and shading will be expressed through colored pencils, ink pens, watercolors, acrylics and pastels, keeping the young artist interested, challenged and engaged. Fun objects like cupcakes and donuts, flowers, and interesting buildings will be themes for our paintings. Some of the paintings created will be modeled after artists such as Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper. Visuals will help us learn the techniques and styles of these artists; students then create their own mini-masterpieces. Please bring snack and lunch. This class can get messy so bring a painting smock, shirt or old clothes.
