Mondays (FULL)

Mondays: May 13, 20, June 3, 10, 17
With spring right around the corner, we’ll shift our focus to art we can appreciate outdoors and in the garden. Using clay, a few simple tools, and our imaginations, we’ll design and build fairy houses, toad abodes, and other unique structures to give shelter to our small friends in the garden, both real and imaginary. (No class on May 27)

Wednesdays: May 22, May 27, June 5, 12, 19
Students will be introduced to simple and fun printmaking techniques such as relief printing, mono-printing, and collographs (a type of collage printing).
