November Workshops for Kiddos & Youth
In this workshop students will be taught how to create their own lotus style book that can be used as a sketchbook, photo album or journal. Students will select the size of their book, the colour of their pages, and the cover design, enabling them to create a book that is uniquely theirs.
Creatures of the animal kingdom, beware! Students will explore and study animals of all kinds, both thriving and extinct, observable and mythical, learning their true natures and essences . . . and then splice and combine, juxtapose and transmutate to create their own FANTASTIC BEASTS! This six week course will introduce and refine various techniques and art forms including clay sculpture, fimo modeling, free form mixed media sculpture, acrylic painting, watercolour and industrial design. Emphasis will be placed on the artistic process, creativity, and FUN. Scary or whimsical, each animal creation will be an expression of each individual student.
Disclaimer: No animals will be harmed in this course. All beasts are released from any and all responsibility for any and all potential havoc they may wreck on our fair city!
Get printing with instructors Pam Lobb and Erin Candela from Graven Feather! This survey of 4 different Printmaking techniques will introduce the joys of printing to young creative types. Learning about Monoprints, Letterpress, Lino-blocks and Silkscreen printing is fun and easy, and there will be 3 different presses to try. Students will come away with beautiful cards, tote-bags, gift-tags and other fun hand-made goods. After the class, students can also take home their screens and a lino-block to continue making art at home.
