July 7th – Weaving 101: Students will make their very own loom, learn how to string it, and learn the basics of weaving. At the end of this session, students will have completed the first steps towards creating beautiful woven art.
July 8th – Stencil Theory: Just as children of old would learn the basics of painting by using stencils made by a master artist, students will learn to create traditional colonial images from our master artist, using stencils to replicate his art.
July 9th – Art of the Pen: Students will make their very own ink using fruit. With this ink, they will create beautiful calligraphy art and letters with a feather pen.
July 13th – Paper Flowers: Students will learn to make a wide array of paper flowers: from roses and poppies to lavender and daisies.
July 14th – Still Life 101: Students will learn the basics of form and lighting from our Master artist and they create a still life together.
July 15th – Pinch and Pull: Students will create a vase from special, air dry clay. When the vase is done, they will learn how to ass addition features, such as animals, flowers, or funny faces to their creation.
