Each of these workshops can be modified for the age/audience. Curriculum development can also be custom fit to dovetail in with classroom curriculum, so that there is content specific programming, so the finished art will tie in with what the students are learning in other areas.
“Papermaking” – Participants will learn a little about the history of paper and then use recycled material to make their own paper.
“Printmaking” – Learn how a print is made, make a printing plate, ink them up and make a print. This can be done in conjunction with papermaking, so each participant is printing on their own paper if it is done as a multi-week class. Or, as a stand alone class printing on regular paper.
“Book Making from start to Finish” – Make paper to start, work on story, poetry, and lino-cuts to fill the books and then finally bind the books. This is a multi-week project.
“Community Pulp-Painting” – Participants “paint” a large screen with pulp.
“Paint like the Masters” – Monet, Kandinsky, Seurat, Van Gogh…This class is a multi-week class which focuses on participants learning about color and painting through learning about a master painter each week of the class and then painting a picture in the style of that master.
