Watercolor Painting for Kids

Course No. YAPT 160 00
Cost $125 Register Now
Credits 0.0
Sessions 8
Dates February 7–March 28 (Saturday) – 1–3pm

Through a playful and experimental approach we will embark on an exploration of the fundamentals of watercolor painting. We will learn the basics such as paint mixing and application techniques, compositional tools such as line and shape, subjects such as still life and landscape, and an array of non-traditional approaches to encourage creative exploration and problem-solving. Emphasis will be placed on developing confidence with the medium, an understanding of formal elements, and a desire for working out of the box. Students will create several finished paintings and be encouraged to keep an explorer’s watercolor sketchbook both in and out of class.

Breathe new life into mundane discarded objects that clutter our landfills. Explore craft and fine art and design with sculptural/wearable art in the spirit of Project Runway’s ‘Unconventional’ challenges, and sustainable ideals. Students can create a head piece, mask or garment from found objects (start collecting them now) and costume design as you rework everyday materials into new objects with soul. Start collecting materials like plastic grocery bags, junk CD’s, crunchy plastic packaging and other found plastics now!

Wheel Throwing: Beginning + Advanced

Course No. CECR 200 00
Cost $345 Register Now
Credits 0.0
Sessions 8
Dates February 3 - March 24 (Tuesday) – 6 - 9pm

Discover throwing on the potter’s wheel to create forms ranging from refined porcelain vessels to rustic teabowls to sculptural objects. We will begin with fundamental elements of centering and making cylinders, cups, bowls, and plates, and continue by exploring form and scale. Finishing surfaces with various methods of carving, joining, and decorating will also be included. Everyone has a unique way of touching clay and this will be an opportunity to get better acquainted with your unique touch while using the wheel. Please bring sketches of forms, decorative patterns or drawings, texturing tools, basic pottery tools, a small bucket, a towel, and plastic to cover work. All experience levels are welcome.

Sessions 2
Dates March 7 - 14 (Saturday) – 9am - 5pm

What is a web page and how do I get one? How does a web designer/developer get the website to look the way it does? Join us for a fun and creative approach to understanding web site development, in a non-coding, artistic, and relaxed environment. We will start with the fundamentals of good web design – and learn how the user views your information and social media posts. From there we will try some ‘hands-on’ page design using Adobe Dreamweaver. This class is great for a beginner as well as for the more advanced learner as we’ll also delve into interactivity and marketing.
