Recycled Art Installation
Maximum 15 Students

Location: Mackey Room 102
Students will collaborate to create a large-scale interactive sculpture incorporating using recycled objects in an artistic way such as fabric, cardboard, and a variety of building materials. Experimenting with collage, unexpected combinations of materials, and getting inspiration by the art of current working artists the students will engage their intuitive imagination, while strengthening their 3D building vocabulary.

Painterly Printmaking: Monoprints
Maximum 15 students

Location: Mackey Room 102
Students will explore Monoprints, a printmaking technique that creates original one of a kind artworks that cannot be exactly duplicated. Monoprints are often referred to as the most painterly of the printmaking processes. A smooth non-absorbent plate is directly painted upon then transferred to paper or other material through pressure resulting in a original print. Some examples of historic monoprints include work by Matisse, Cézanne, Picasso, and Degas.

Pop Art: Jim Dine
Maximum 15 students

Location: Greathouse Room 215
This workshop will experiment, develop, and explore painting skills influenced by Jim Dine. Students will be reintroduced to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. One work will be created using crayons, colored pencils, water color, India ink, and oil pastels.
