Summer Art Workshop (S.A.W.)
June 20-26, 2021
Drawing: People, Places, Things!
Students will experiment with various observational drawing techniques, sketching from both the still life and the figure.
Printmaking: What a Relief!
Students will be introduced to printmaking and how to create linoleum relief prints. Using this process, students will create relief prints on paper as well as collaborative bandanas. Bonus: You may also bring a T-shirt of your own to print your design on.
Students will make a series of small ceramic heads based on human proportions with an eye toward creating a sense of inhabitation, presence and personality. Well the heads will only be once-fired, students will learn how to build up rich surfaces using clay slips, terra sigillata, and underglazes.
