Description

Curious George is (of course), but so are Sherlock Holmes, Sally Ride, Lara Croft and Pandora. Whether they are fact or fiction, detectives, explorers or mischief-making animals, curiosity motivates them all. This course examines that trait from the mundane (What is under the rock?) to the complex (Can we walk on the moon?). Young artists become familiar with stories of human inquiry that lead to their own interpretive artworks in the form of drawings, sculptures and stories, as well as original characters who ask questions and search for answers.

Have you ever wondered how to capture the wonder and beauty of nature in your artwork, but at the same time express your feelings about what you see?

In this course, young artists develop their artistic voice while creating artwork that expresses a range of feelings and multiple views of a subject. In the process, the course builds basic art and design skills, and encourages young artists to explore a variety of media.

Description

Celebrated throughout history, carnivals combine elements of a circus, parade, public street party and masquerade ball -- all rolled into one! During the celebrations, people often dress up or operate large character puppets and perform for audiences outdoors or as part of a show. In this course, students create larger-than-life puppets that can move, perform and even parade, while learning innovative puppetry construction techniques using colorful paints, fabrics, assorted modeling and recycled materials. No idea is too wild as they draw inspiration from the carnival costumes and pageantry of Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Southeast Asia and beyond.
