We will explore traditional art processes including drawing and sculpture, and bring them to new life using iStopMotion software. Artists will work with a partner to explore character and set design, filming and editing. The club will conclude with a film festival to showcase the artists hard work!

For K—1st Grade
Creative Canvases

What surface can you paint on?! The possibilities are endless! This week artists will create a series of paintings. Artist will paint on patterned fabric canvas, using their interests as inspiration. (We will be using time during this class to photograph images for next weeks session.)

Photo Frenzy

Once a photo is taken the ability for it to take on a new life emerge! Artists will have the opportunity to use a professional digital camera to take photographs. Each artist will take the photos from their series and use it to create a new work of art using the following processes: painting, tracing cutting and collage.

Sew What?

Sewing is an exciting form of textile art! During this session we will review basic sewing techniques. Artist will be given the opportunity to make a bag, monster, stuffed animal? A variety of templates will be provided to give artists the guidance to make a sewn creation.

The art form of mosaics have been around for thousands of years! Artist will use beads and cut paper to assemble mosaics that can be turned into cards to keep or give away to family and friends.
