ART LAB with Luke Ramsey

Science and art collide in this exciting and new after-school class!  Students ages 7 -10 will explore the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) through creative experimentation, building a ‘robot artist’ capable of producing abstract works of art. They will become engineers and use the power of wind to create wind-powered kinetic sculptures, explore the science of sunlight using cyanotypes made with pressed Sonoran plants to explore the power of light, from photosynthesis to photography.  Plus, using math, students will learn to create mind-illusions by following simple mathematical instructions.

Students age 7 – 10.

Summer Clay Camp with Dani Sirrine

In this class students will receive one-on-one instruction in clay. Students will work to expand their knowledge by participating in various assignments tailored for where they are on their personal journey with clay. Students will have the opportunity to learn the basics of hand building and learning about glazing techniques and will get to go home with several beautiful finished projects. Whether this is their first class, they are familiar with the basics, or they are interested in learning advanced techniques, this class offers an opportunity to grow as a budding, young artist.

Ages: 10 – 15
