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.
