Mini-Maker Session 2 weeks of Sept 30 - Oct 28
Time & Location
About the Event
The Mini-Maker Art Workshop is an opportunity for youngsters to think like an artist. Creative minds are encouraged to express their thoughts, ideas and interests in a light-filled, welcoming space. There are no mistakes in the process. There are only opportunities to learn through exploring materials and mediums, using known skills and finding new ones, envisioning and trying solutions to perceived problems. Your child will paint, glue, draw, build, and stitch. Most workshops will be open ended, where the end product is not as important as the process of getting to it. Occasionally, there will be a goal in mind. The children will learn to speak about what they are doing and will interact with others in a positive, encouraging and thought-provoking way.
Those involved in the Mini-Maker Art Workshop will be exposed to many different materials with which to create, including wood, paper, oil pastels, crayon, watercolor, tempera paint, clay. recycled materials, fabric, and more.
For those age 4- 6, the time will be focused on artistic expression, using the different mediums and exploring their properties through creative play. Those age 7-12 will do these things as well but will also be introduced to techniques like print making, collage, and stenciling. They will have opportunities to partake in various crafts such as paper-mache`, paper flowers and nature mobiles. Those age 13-15 can choose what they want to spend their time on.
The workshop runs in 5 week sessions. Each week, Monday through Friday for 2 hours each day, the studio will be accessible to those registered for the workshop according to their age group schedule. During any one session, the same exploration/project will be taking place each of the five days of one week. With a new week comes a new exploration/project. Therefore, if your 4 year old attends on Monday from 4 - 6pm and then comes back on Thursday of the same week, the explorations will be the same as those previously done. When they return the next week, the explorations will change. If they come for successive sessions, they will see repeated explorations with a small number of changes.
Once you register, paperwork will be emailed to you to complete and bring with you on the first day attended.
