Ages 7-12 - Summer Sketching, with Eva Scopino

A class that is both focused and fun! Drawing can benefit visual thinking, powers of observation, and problem solving.

Students will experiment with a variety of materials, including found objects, natural materials, food, and more. Learn new techniques to draw, paint, sculpt, build, and collage. Create a large-scale group project from a Sol Lewitt wall drawing. Let your art get wacky! Tuesdays & Thursdays, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm, July 31 – August 16

Ages 12-17 -
Fun with Photoshop, with Lucy McClure

Learn the basics of Photoshop through weekly creative assignments. Students will learn to clone, make photomontages and composites, and much more. We will explore the creative and artistic aspects of this powerful program while still considering the basic elements of a good photograph. This course is designed for teens, but interested adults are welcome.

Supplies: Digital camera and thumb drive required; access to a home computer and printer recommended. Students must provide their own paper for printing. Wednesdays, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, June 27 – August 22.  No class July 4

Afternoon Clay, with Michael Bradford

Teens, college students, and adults are welcome to join our exploration of all things stoneware, using both hand-building techniques and the potter’s wheel. Each student is taught individually at his or her own experience level. Start by learning the foundational skills to create basic ceramic objects, such as cups, bowls, and floral containers. As students refine these skills, they will work on more complex projects, enabling them to combine techniques and to push their creativity and problem-solving abilities. Glazing and other surface treatments will be explored. Supplies: Wear clothes that can get dirty. Optional: bring a small towel. Tools are available for sale. Notes: Includes three hours of weekly practice time. Thursdays, 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm, June 28 – August 9
