Art In Focus: Weekend Drop Off
Contact: Valerie at email@example.com
Art in Focus is a two-hour drop-off art session for ages 8-15, featuring a different topic each week. Taught by professional teaching artists, these weekend classes are designed to teach and build upon art-making skills while introducing students to imaginative expression.
October 5: Character Counts
Students in this class will create unique characters using fundamental sculpting techniques. They will develop skills in clay modeling and construction while moulding figurines and animating them in a series of stop motion film shorts using Boinx iStopMotion software.
October 12: Printing on the Press
Using CMA’s vintage press, participants will learn basic printing and press skills! Students will create relief, collograph, and blind embossment prints. Plus they will make their own linoleum signature block to sign each print.
October 19: Setting the Scene: Animating with iStopMotion
Using cardboard, paper, paint and found materials, students in this class will learn how to design and build their own sets. After constructing these imagined places, CMA’s teaching artists will guide the group through the animating process, giving students the chance to animate their scenes in a series of stop motion film shorts.
November 2: Fashion to ‘Hand-dye’ For
This is not your average tie-dyeing class. Students will learn traditional techniques such as Batik (wax-resist hand-dye) and the Japanese method of Shibori, as well as classic tie-dye. Participants will design their own patterns and experiment with colors, leaving with a hand-dyed t-shirt and tote to sport this fall.
November 9: “Drawn to Animation”
This hands-on arts class is perfect for the avid illustrator. In “Drawn to Animation” students will learn how to create moving flip books, as well as animate with chalk and dry erase markers–all with the technical aid of Boinx iStopMotion software.
November 16: Painting Cityscapes
Take in that magnificent Manhattan skyline! Participants in this class will learn traditional painting techniques, color mixing, and how to create their own palette as they design cityscapes inspired by CMA’s surrounding views.
