Get ready to learn about 5 mythological creatures - and some of their real life counterparts! Each week we'll create original artworks inspired by mythological/real life pairings, such as unicorns along with narwhals, dragons and Draco flying lizards, the sphinx along with a lion - to name a few! We will utilize a variety of two- and three-dimensional media in order to bring our creatures - and their environments - to life!

What would happen if you drew a tiny dragonfly with a three-foot wingspan? Or focused on one small flower in order to paint a section of it really large? These are just some of the tiny things we will look at on a much larger scale! We will also learn about famous artists who practiced this technique - such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Chuck Close - as well as learn about electronic microscopes and what worlds they can show us under the magnifying glass!

For the month of May we will look to the cosmos for inspiration. We’ll learn about the planets, galaxies and stars - all while making art about them, of course! Some topics we will cover are the phases of the moon, solar flares, and the constellations. We will even design a junk art “rover” to explore a planet in our solar system… or beyond! Classes will be structured so that they are adaptable to a variety of age ranges, will focus on age-specific skill building, as well as social skills. Be sure to join us for this very exciting, space-tastic edition of Homeschool Club!

In this exciting edition of Ceramics Club we will be making ceramic object that may look ordinary, but each harbors a secret ceramic surprise!

Whatever the assignment, your artist is sure to treasure these unique ceramics for years to come.
