Art Like Me!

Jul 11 - 15, 2022

9AM-3PM

Concept

In this workshop, design and create works of art based on the things and people who are important to you! Throughout the week, students create magical 2-D artworks using various mixed media to curate into a book that tells an autobiographical story. Work creatively with paint, oil pastels, collage, glitter, clay and papier-mâché. Sculpt ceramic family trees and papier-mâché world sculptures that replicate treasured memories. Children will also use sketchbooks and learn about famous artists to help ideas flow! Get ready to tell a story through art; at the end of the week books and sculptures are displayed.

This workshop is taught by a bilingual art educator who will support our English and Spanish speaking participants through the use of both languages during instruction. 

El taller será dado por un profesor de artes profesional que apoyará tanto a nuestros participantes hispanoparlantes como a los que hablan inglés haciendo uso de ambos lenguajes durante la clase.

¡Arte como yo!

En este taller se diseña y crea obras de arte basadas en las cosas y personas que son importantes para ti. A lo largo de la semana, los alumnos crearán obras de arte mágicas en dos dimensiones, utilizando diversos medios mixtos para confeccionar un libro que cuente una historia autobiográfica. Trabajarán de forma creativa con pintura, pasteles al óleo, collage, purpurina, arcilla y papel maché. Esculpirán árboles genealógicos de cerámica y esculturas del mundo de papel maché que reproduzcan recuerdos entrañables. Los niños también utilizarán cuadernos de dibujo y aprenderán sobre artistas famosos para que las ideas fluyan. Prepárate para contar una historia a través del arte y al final de la semana expondrás los libros y las esculturas.
