We will investigate our neighborhood as a jumping off point for creating new worlds and some fantastical creatures in which they will live. We will do observational and landscape drawings, make illustrated maps, create unique animal masks from papier mache, and devise cool artifacts.
Back by popular demand! Students dive into the principles of modern design, looking at influential architecture, furniture and graphic design. Inspired by Californians Charles and Ray Eames, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Corita Kent, students will make model homes and furniture, and create graphic posters.
Come with us on a journey to Japan, India and Africa for inspiration, as we explore and create our own modern twist on handmade arts and explore textile design such as batik, paper weaving, calligraphy, tool-making, and printmaking.
Young artists will create fun and unique art projects based on contemporary art. Using inspiration from artists like SWOON, Nick Cave, Cindy Sherman, Chuck Close and Shepard Fairey, we will explore paper, pens and paint to create pieces of personal expression, environmental awareness, geometric pattern, and fantastic works of imagination!
