An introductory course in sculpture with a twist - students will create cake sculptures with a variety of mediums including boxes, foam, paper plates, card board, molding paste, cake piping utensils, acrylic paint, and a variety of decorative elements like lace, trim, buttons, and fake fruit, and molding paste. You will create design ideas by drawing and model making, looking at related art works, and material and construction demonstrations.
Secret (Travel) Agents - In this week which blends art and science, teaching artist Andrea Lofthouse leads students in an investigation of the real and make believe worlds of animals. Using a change in scale, the idea of animals on vacation and other goofy ideas, we will create fun art projects - making vacation itineraries, maps, journals and dioramas such as a bird hotel or a bug water slide or a possum resort. Students will learn drawing, painting and design skills, use creative writing, and make their own 3D sculptures.
Secret (Time Travel) Agents - In this week, teaching artist Andrea Lofthouse takes children on a journey to the future where they must create travel paraphernalia such as postcards, photos, buttons, goofy trinkets, etc… of life in the future. Based on drawn and written observations of life around us - the city, buildings, and cars - we will imagine how our world will look in the future and create drawings and designs for maps, menus, journals, and create a 3D time machine.
