Muddy Days: Clay Session II

(ages 6-10)

Deborah Bazer
Our delightfully muddy hands will create a wide array of art using clay, that gorgeous squishy stuff that comes from the ground! You can push it, pull it, poke it into just about anything you can think of. Come learn about where clay comes from, and how to use it. We’ll create our own artwork using coil, pinch and slab techniques, and then finish it with colorful slip (liquid colored clay) and glaze. We’ll also have plenty of time outside for playing games, exploring other malleable materials, and telling stories of magical and muddy places. All art work from this class will be fired and ready for pick up a few weeks after class. Please bring a lunch, water and a snack.

Cat Tales

(ages 5-9)

Lahri Bond
We’re not kitten, when we say this class will have you feline good. Students will draw, paint, make masks and three-dimensional cats in paper maché, while hearing remarkable tales of human-kind’s other “best friend.” Come be whiskered away as we hear paw-sitive stories, meow-velous myths, and hiss-terical folk tales of ferocious felines, cantankerous kitties, and terrific tabbies, while creating fabulous furry creations. Snack, lunches, games, and drawing time will be spent outside. Please bring a lunch, water and a snack. A won-fur-full good time is guaranteed fur all.

Your Dragon is Stepping on My Tale!

(ages 7-10)

Deborah Bazer

Do you love folklore and mythology? Then come join us in the magical lands of your imagination as we craft dragons, unicorns, wizards, selchies and a host of legendary beasties out of paint, pencil, pastel and paper mache. We’ll also make books from marbleized paper and feather quill pens to create our own tales and tails. Along the way, we’ll hear stories from around the world about many mystical and magical creatures. Please bring a lunch, water and a snack.

Super Powered Kids

(ages 7-10)

Lahri Bond
While The Avengers, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Spiderman have captured imaginations in popular movies and cartoons, their origins are in the simple line drawings and fertile imaginations of young artists. We will explore the art of visual storytelling, first by learning to draw some of our favorite cartoon and comic characters, then by inventing our own. Over an action-packed week, we will illustrate multi-paneled stories, and then make our own masks, symbols, utility belts, and super-gear to become the actual superheroes we have drawn. Snack, lunches, games, and drawing time will be spent outside.

Spr’outin About

(ages 7-10)

Deborah Bazer
Come, explore the forest, and create nature inspired art. We will start by making our own sketch books to draw in. We’ll also make baskets and sew bags to collect treasures from outside, and to carry our sketch books in. Then, we’ll make our own beautiful brushes out of sticks, hair, wool, leaves and feathers -- works of art in themselves. We’ll even experiment making paint and ink out of berry juice, clay, crushed rocks and nut shells to use in the art we create.  Our exploration will also include some natural dyeing of wool with plants, nut shells and flowers. Most of our time will be spent outside, playing games, observing, drawing, painting, telling stories, and collecting natural materials to use, with other materials, in our artwork. Please bring a lunch, water and a snack.

Dinotopia: Dinosaurs Then & Now

(ages 5-9)

Lahri Bond
Dinosaurs roam the Pioneer Valley once again, as Terrific T-Rexes, beautiful Brontosaurs, and sensational Stegosaurus converge in Amherst. We will imagine how dinosaurs were, and how different the Pioneer Valley would be today if dinos still roamed around. With glue, paint, paper mache, and ingenuity we will create real and imagined dinosaurs, as well as the dwellings, vehicles, and spaceships they might use. Snack, lunches, games, and drawing time will be spent outside. Please bring a lunch, water and a snack for a dinoterrific time.
