FEELING A LITTLE OVERWHELMED & NOT SURE WHAT TO PICK?? READ ON! HOPEFULLY THIS WILL MAKE CLEAR WHAT EACH CLASS IS ABOUT:
ARTIST STUDY: A Mixed Media class dedicated to studying two Master Artists. We will learn drawing basics then build on that with painting techniques as we replicate what worked for these famous artists. Four weeks of VanGogh followed by four weeks of Picasso with all supplies included.
CLAY CREATIONS: Introducing our first class dedicated solely to CLAY! Your artist will love getting to create 3-dimensional art pieces that allow each one to learn about structure, shape & form in a super fun way. Artists will learn fundamental techniques while experiencing a tactile medium. Techniques include but are not limited to coil, slab and sculpture along with pointers for applying paint to their creations. BONUS: We now have a Kiln! So we get to fire up these pieces making them stronger and more legit.
PUPPETRY: In this 8 week workshop we will create papier mache puppets using a variety of mediums including clay, wire, papier mache, acrylic paint and fabric. Artists will leave the course with their very own unique and original character, complete with a personality and bio. Puppet performance for parents on the last day of class.
UKULELE PAINT + PLAY: Led by Seth Womble – master painter of ukuleles, this session will be split up into four weeks of painting your very own ukulele (yes, you get to keep it!) then four weeks of learning how to play your painted ukulele. Cost $150
THE ART OF HAND LETTERING: This class is exclusively designed for the budding artist who sees the potential for letters to be an art form in an of themselves. Tips ‘n tricks and guidance through different styles of lettering plus room to create a number of your own art pieces whether it be a letter, a word or a string of words together.
MURAL COLLABORATION: Large scale collaborative art techniques led by mural artist, Seth. Has your keiki ever wondered how to make a small drawing BIG?! This is the class for them! The group will work together in the creation a large masterpiece. No room for disappointment with that.
MIXED MEDIA CLASSES: In these classes your artist will learn a wide range of skills through exploring a variety of mediums and tools. Your artist will learn much more than just cookie cutter crafts! We strive to expose students to aspects of art history, current art makers, and the elements of art (line, space, color, balance, etc.), while letting them run a little wild with their own imagination. Mixed media classes are an excellent starting point for trying out an art class with us as some other more advanced classes we offer may require mixed media as a pre-requisite.
MODERN CRAFT COLLECTIVE : A full session worth (8 consecutive weeks) of 1.5 hour workshops for tweens ’n teens (11-teens). Artists who enroll will be guided through a new project facilitated by a talented artist & maker in our community (+ our very own creative gurus!). This was a huge hit this past session we have to offer it again! This group will again delve into the making of a variety of creative, trendy things any tween or teen will be sure to love!
* because this is longer and more involved (both materials + time teaching) the cost for this course is $150
DRAWING 101: Take advantage of this amazing artist teaching legit skills in drawing! Seth is a world renowned artist well-known for large murals both here on island and abroad. Take a glance at his website (sethcre8s.com) and you’ll definitely want your keiki/teen learning the skills he has to offer. Techniques in shading, various perspectives, still life, portraits & landscapes will be explored in a not-at-all boring way. We’re pretty confident your artist will come away really proud of what he/she will create throughout this course.
