This class will offer a creative exploration of techniques, texture and thinking outside of the art box. We will be redefining the way your kids look at art. We will look at new ways to use ordinary art items as well as how to use objects they never considered possible. Students will create multi-dimensional pieces with a variety of materials, objects, paints, mediums and more. Techniques will include but not limited to collage, assemblage, painting, color blending, texturizing, distressing, transferring, layering, etc.
We will begin on the following projects and do more if possible, depending on how fast each project goes:
Project to learn layering, assemblage, texturizing, etc
Project to learn color blending, different paint/color mediums, texture
Unique collage, textile self portrait
Stunning art piece using textures, colors and natural God made elements such as seashells, grapevine, etc
