Pop Art Painting  (ages 8-11)

Using traditional methods of gouache painting, printmaking, and collage, students will create vibrant paintings in the “Pop” art style of famous artists Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichtenstein. Just as the original Pop Artists drew inspiration from the world around them, we will look at popular culture, objects, and people we find interesting today for our inspiration. Instructor: Sarah Jane Ballentine

Comics  (ages 8 & up)

Learn how to create and illustrate a story in comicbook form. Students will learn about different forms of comics and how they came to be, how to put ideas into panels and speech bubbles, how to make a comic flow, and what makes a good story. Gag comics, story comics, and much more!

Art Dolls  (ages 11 & up)

Create poseable fabric and wire based figures embellished with beading and found objects. Students will learn to build and flesh out armatures with fiber based media, critical project planning, and adaptation to materials used in non-traditional ways. Instructor: Cat Lloyd
