Description

The universe is a wacky place full of actions and interactions with black holes, galaxy-eating collisions, asteroids, meteors and nebulas. Young artists/explorers will design and create their own constellations using the stars, name them, and develop a story or myth that supports their ideas. They then imagine and visualize what a planetary terrain looks like or what a parallel universe is comprised of. Students will envision these alternative worlds (including their colors, sounds, shapes and patterns) as two- and three-dimensional representations using a variety of materials. In the process, they'll build new skills in drawing, painting, collaging, printmaking and mixed media, adding up to an exciting out-of-this-world camp.

Description

Play and expression come together in this course that introduces children to basic art making techniques and art vocabulary. Inspired by a theme, students are encouraged to come up with creative solutions that can begin as drawings, become vibrant paintings and then three-dimensional constructions. Lessons in process are demonstrated and reflected upon as students consider a creative method that is thoughtfully discussed and becomes part of a creative arc that extends beyond the last class, as they continue "Artin' Around."

Description

We dare your young artist to be artistic and innovative. In this course, the design process is introduced to young artists who are challenged to think of new and unusual approaches that achieve exciting results. The instructor presents examples of entrepreneurs and inventors who have changed the world with their product design ideas because they dared to think differently. Building on these inspirational profiles, students develop concepts that push their own creative limits. It is a failure-free classroom that encourages outlandish (but practical) solutions presented by students who dare to imagine, explore and innovate.

Description

Freedom is an ideal that often comes with great struggle. This course presents the concept visually for the youngest of artists. Students hear the stories of freedom fighters, advocates and champions (both historical and fictitious), and connect them to their own experience as they create their own interpretive artworks. The projects encourage a dialogue about civil rights, our responsibilities to one another and the oppression, bigotry and bias that can threaten a free society.

Description

Silliness and an enthusiastic hooray for the absurd is a natural part of the childhood experience; they're kids' way of understanding a complex world. This course unites that natural inclination with the act of "making" to give young artists a look through the keyhole of art and design. Oldenburg, Disney and Dali are the diverse talents that are used to introduce the topic, and students reinterpret their own "silly" in comic strips, games and sculpture. It is a show of creativity and expressive play that values the trait that children do best.
