Students will take home finished pieces reflective of both.
July 11. Shrink Art Masterpiece Jewelry. Students will create three pieces of jewelry by interpreting famous works of art. Artists includes in this lesson will be Picasso, Degas, Peter Max, Georgia O’Keefe, and Andy Warhol.
June 18. Under the Sea Paper Weight Cubes. Students will be introduced to three- dimensional arts while studying the importance of line, color, balance and rhythm in art. The student will begin with a ready-made cube in which they will design an underwater scene. Included in this lesson is a handout with illustration of various marine lives for students who might need ideas. Students will use acrylic paint to produce the six-sided work, which will be sealed with acrylic sealer to make it durable and ready to take home.
July 25. Woodsies Extraordinary Wearables. Students need the experience of working freely and spontaneously. In this lesson they create wearable art using people, animals and symbols as a basis for their designs.
August 1. Wonder Foam Collagraph Prints. Collagraph is a printing process which material is arranged in collage style on a rigid surface, coated with ink and then transferred to paper. In this lesson, students will use wonder foam to make the patterns on plates. Once students have designed their plates, they will use a variety of ink colors to produce their collagraph. Students will each produce an 11 x 17 piece.
August 8. Grant Wood and David Hockney Landscapes. Students will create a landscape painting using bleeding art tissue and watercolor (pre-filled) paint sticks using the influences of Wood and Hockney. Students and teacher will compare and contrast both artists, enabling the students to focus on the qualities they like from each artist, resulting in a 9 x 12 completed piece.
August 15. Take-along Sketch Book. Students will discover the art of book-making. These books are a work of art in themselves. Students will leave with one fully functioning book each. The books can be used as sketch books, journals, address books or notebooks.
