Fall 2017 Courses

Ages 6–7
Sculpture, Animal Mummies, and You
Saturdays, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

Get to know our collection of animal mummies inside and out! Use paint markers and transparencies to make X-ray–inspired drawings. Then use paper, wire, and muslin to create your own sculptures based on this ancient Egyptian tradition.

Painting Miniatures and Murals
Sundays, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

Explore paintings big and small—from miniature paintings to large-scale murals, and everything in between. Play with color, shape, and texture, and then use your new skills to create a collaborative mural with your class.

Ages 8–10
Portraits and Places
Saturdays, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

Come face-to-face with the portraits in our collection. See how artists experiment with proportion and brushstrokes to develop unique styles. Improve your painting techniques and create expressive portraits.

Draw It Big!
Sundays, 10:30 am–12:30 am

Have you ever wanted to make a really big drawing? See Robert Longo’s larger-than-life drawings based on the world around him. Then, practice new techniques to create your own monumental works of charcoal on paper.

Painting Without Paint
Sundays, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

Learn the basics of assemblage, and piece together fabric, magazine clippings, and found objects. Make an artwork that tells your story and incorporates your own items from home.

Ages 11–13
Portfolio Development: Sculpture
Saturdays, 1:30–3:30 pm

Push your art-making skills to the third dimension. Learn how to use paper, chipboard, and wood to construct models that demonstrate balance, proportion, and rhythm. Build your portfolio with unique sculptures that are sure to impress any art school.

Animating Comics
Sundays, 1:30–3:30 pm

Explore narrative art and create your own comics. Think beyond the comic strip and find inspiration in our Korean gallery. Practice drawing techniques in pen and ink, and bring your illustrations to life with animation software.
