Art and Architecture – Spanish Edition – Monica Crawford
The students in this class will explore the unique art forms found in art and architecture of Spain. The following thematic studies will be explored: create nature in architecture by rebuilding Antonio Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia with model magic, study paintings of Salvador Dali, more than a beginner’s guide to surrealist painting, and learn about Spanish tiles and the mosaic art form through the looking glass of past glory and history of Spain.
Art from All Angles: Enter the Dimension of 2D and 3D Space – Haley Kirtley
Discover the new possibility of space by creating cool, eye popping, and zany three-dimensional art forms using materials found in nature, around your home, as well as traditional media such as cardboard, paint, clay, wood, plaster, and more. We will carve, construct, and assemble to study the hands-on sculptural process for a deeper understanding of art in the round. So, won’t you join us and add your personal dimension of artistic space with your own style of painting, assembling, and sculpting?
Creative Ceramics: Wheel Throwing – Jenna Hall and Ethan Hughes
Clay is a material full of creative and artistic possibilities. In this class, we will learn to use clay on a potter’s wheel to create functional cups, bowls, mugs, and/or creative containers from your imagination. We will study several ceramic forms, work with various surface techniques, carve, add, modify, and alter the form of the containers you create into something functional, whimsical, and exciting.
Mixed Media Multicultural Experiences – Ashley Hurt and April Yates
Through art, we can truly see the whole world. No passport is required; just bring your imagination, and we can experience many different world cultures. We will celebrate unique cultural expressions as we travel abroad within our own art studio and in our imaginations. Your creations will include a Japanese Haiku book, a Koinobori (Carp Streamer), a Japanese block print, a milk jug African mask, a Navajo weaving, and more!
