Ever wonder how to create a Bar-ba-loot in his bar-ba-loot suit? Or a Scraggle-Footed Mulligatawny? Then this week is for you! Dr. Seuss was not just an author and illustrator, he was a sculptor too! To get the best understanding of what his characters would look like, he would build them in 3-D form to study every angle. Join us as we look to the beloved artist author Dr. Seuss and his menagerie of strange and unusual creatures for inspiration. After creating a 2D sketch of what your Seussian creature will look like, you will then use wood, wire, and paper mache to craft your 3D Seuss sculptures!

In this week long class we will look at the art of Eric Carle and his fantastic illustrations… Paying special attention to The Mixed Up Chameleon and all of his friends, of course! Students will explore a variety of different painting and printmaking techniques in order to create a bevy of interesting textures. They will then take these papers and rip and cut them up in order to create new, collaged animals and their environments!

In this glass etching workshop, students will learn about the power of positive and negative space as well as organic versus geometric shapes. We will apply hands-on science and safely play with corrosive materials to learn the art of etching! If they wish, students can bring their own smooth glassware to use, or take advantage of a variety of other glass surfaces supplied by The Art Garage. This exciting new class will be sure to intrigue all artists!

Description

This unique class will examine our feelings and social development by merging storytelling, peer interaction and - of course - art! Students will explore how different colors and materials can make them feel different emotions, and will investigate how they feel before and after making art. Each day artists will create one process and one product based project inspired by stories with themes such as empathy, good manners, and the keys to being an overall healthy and happy individual! Some stories include Do Unto Otters, Rude Cakes, and Please Mr. Panda. Projects will use acrylics, pastels, watercolors, markers, and more!
