Tuesdays: Ceramics Class (Clay)
This class is both for beginners and students that have some experience with clay. We will be using the pinch pot method to create an animal. Use the coil method to create a jar. And, we will use slabs of clay to create a box. Students will also get to try wheel-throwing. All of these projects will be decorated and glazed.
Wednesdays: Fibers Class
Students will learn ways to recycle in this class while making some fun projects. We will be creating our own paper, as well as, use plastic bags to make plarn for crochet and weaving projects. The students will also be able to use some fabric manipulation methods, like stamping and dyeing, for upcycling one of their t-shirts. Macrame, the knotting method used in friendship bracelets, will also be used to allow the student to try new ways to create jewelry.
Thursdays: 2D Class
The student will understand proportions and concepts used to create their very own self portrait using oil pastels. They will also learn methods used in chalk art while creating a “stained glass” drawing using glue for the “lead lines” and chalk for the “glass” colors. Lastly, we will incorporate printmaking methods for making a cardboard print plate to be used to stamp onto paper that we have decorated with paint.
