The Great Mash-Up

Jul 25 - 29, 2022

9AM-3PM

Concept

Do you remember the last time you let your imagination run wild—deconstructed a soda can into a creature or sculpted a “broccolion” on your dinner place? This workshop explores students’ creative side through drawing, writing, found objects and ceramics. “Canimals” await around every corner. Create a “bananaconda” habitat, write and illustrate a poem about a newly discovered “scranimal” or sculpt it in clay from a recycled object. Imagination is the only limit.

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!
