5PM: PICK UP
Sculpture is one of the foundational classes at Scribble mainly because it directly teaches to our mission: art making is about problem solving and responding to the materials in front of you in the moment. In this class, artists will explore all types of building with a variety of materials and methods, all to teach (through experience) the most basic elements of sculpture: structural stability and aesthetic detail/interest.
Painting is a complex and beautiful process that children love. We'll explore watercolor, acrylic, ink and other forms of mark making with a brush and without. Alternating the painting surface, material and tools will give our artists a wealth of various experiences with the art of creating work (both abstract and representational) with paint.
UPCYCLE ART (WEDNESDAYS)
A huge part of being an artist is transforming everyday materials with creativity and hard work! This class will be all about taking materials that could be perceived as garbage and using them to create beautiful pieces of artwork. This is recycling as an art form...making jewelry, sculptures, drawings and paintings out of everyday recyclable objects!
This class will give artists experiences with both traditional and non-traditional printmaking methods including block printing with found objects, linoleum printing, mono-printing and more. We’ll print on many different surfaces including wood and various types of paper and then explore layering over our prints with painting, drawing and collage.
TOY DESIGN (FRIDAYS)
Who wouldn't want to make their own toys with a creative twist?!? This class is a play on sculpture, drawing and painting. This spring, we'll begin by designing and creating our own board games complete with clay pieces. Then, we'll use painting, drawing and collage materials to make working creature pull toys out of wood!
