WITH BROOKE PICHE, BRIT BURCH, CHRIS COOPER, HANNAH SEITTER, AND GUEST ARTIST CHRIS REID, WITH VOLUNTEERS FROM THE BRANDON EMBROIDERERS
Learn creative methods for building puppets. Art instructors will help students design and construct unique puppets with inspiration from Jim Henson and local artist Chris Reid. Develop storylines and characters that express identity and imagination. Students will cut and attach fabric, textiles, and faux fur, then add details such as wings, mustaches, hats, sweaters, tails, and more. Families will be invited to a puppet showcase at the end of the session.
SAT: 1-4PM, JAN 26, FEB 2 & 9
SUPERHERO FOR A DAY
Working with drawing, photography, and paint, students will create superhero self-portraits. Learn to draw characters in dynamic poses, as well as experiment with collage, paint, and pastel to create cityscapes and scenes.
SAT: 1-4PM, FEB 16 & 23
PAPERMAKING & NATURE’S DESIGN
Learn where paper comes from and how to create your own from recycled materials. You’ll blend fibres, mash, press, and mix natural materials into squishy paper pulp! Learn to dry your paper on screens like a pro. Explore designs found in nature to make colourful mandala creations and beautiful gifts.
SAT: 1-4PM, MARCH 2 & 9
SOUNDSCAPES AND MUSICAL PAINTINGS
Learn how artists create art with sound. Construct a soundscape with handmade musical instruments and create an imaginative world which encourages deep listening. Build confidence in developing your own creative style by experimenting with new media and mind-stretching painting exercises.
