Art Around the World

Jun 26 - 30, 2023

9AM - 3PM

Concept

Pack your bags and get ready to embark on the artistic adventure of a lifetime! We start our journey by creating our very own passports, and then off we go to Japan, Mexico, Italy, Panama, and Brazil. Each day students focus on one destination and create beautiful and creative works of art specific to that location. Projects include Japanese ceramic tea cups and paper lanterns, Mexican prayer boxes, Italian frescos, colorful mola textiles from Panama, and papier-mâché parrots from Brazil. We also explore the culture, folklore, and history of these destinations.

Join us for a week of experimentation and pulpy play as we explore the possibilities of paper! In this workshop, we investigate all of the different forms this everyday material can take. Projects range from making our own recycled paper, to papier mâché, to casting paper pulp to create unique objects and textures. As we learn how to work with paper, we learn about where different paper fibers come from and how they have been used across cultures and traditions. Students end the week with a plethora of sculptural paper creations!
