Elemental Arts Dates & Projects:

June 2: Earth – Celebrate the start of summer with a great morning together! We’ll explore land art with our urban eco-artist, and add our own lasting elements to the projects using concrete. We’ll also create handmade prints, using nature and earth for our inspiration and impressions.

June 16: Wind – The wind will become our collaborator in our artwork! We’ll make kinetic art, flying art, and paint with air. You won’t want to miss this one! Wild artists encouraged to bring their mad scientists.

June 30: Fire – Who has the most heat? THE SUN! We’re use the sun’s power to make cyanotypes, and to make shadow art as well. Then, as families, we’ll explore the art of encaustics- using melted wax to create abstract masterpieces, suitable for hanging.

HAPPY 4th of July!

July 14: Metal – We’ll shape wire to create line sculptures, emboss copper to make beautiful 2D art, and play with group sculptures and photography. You’ll be surprised by how accomplished your projects will look!

July 28: Water – Water is a summer MUST! We’ll paint in the most unusual ways and make some great memories and art! We’ll also make monotypes, a special kind of printmaking, and celebrate our love of places with water- rivers, lake, oceans, and more! Come dressed to get wet; swim goggles necessary for wild painting!

Note: Creativity brings us closer together- all family members should come prepared for fun: art clothes, closed toe shoes, things that can get wet, and a sense of humor!
