Description

Banksy used rats in a lot of his public art to symbolize himself, urban life and modern culture. Today you will use Banksy’s graphic and stylized work as inspiration for your own rat art. The year of the rat signifies wealth and prosperity. How will you incorporate these New Year symbols into your artwork? Students will stamp, splatter and layer their canvases to incorporate the street art style. Classes will be modified to be age appropriate.

Be it a bedroom in Arles painted by Van Gogh or Mount Fuji captured by Hokusai, there is a long tradition of artists finding inspiration from the environments around them. In this class we will derive inspiration from the places we spend time in every day, including our beloved Denver, our homes and even The Art Garage! Artists will use drawing, painting and collage. Lessons are adapted to be age appropriate.

In this class we will use a traditionally 2-dimensional medium and transform it into something sculptural! Join us as we rip, fold, paste, weave and restructure paper into interesting sculptural creations, both abstract and representational. Young artists will enhance fine motor skills while older artists will gain an understanding of construction techniques as they create one-of-a-kind sculptures. Lessons will be adapted so that they are age appropriate.
