|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Friday, repeating until July 31, 2015

State of Create is an exciting drop-in art club for teenagers. With the support of experienced staff members, we’ll explore challenging materials, professional techniques, and new art forms. Beginning June 5, Come join us each Friday (except for July 3).

June 5: Casting Call

Using plaster and molten pewter, we’ll create small sculptures. Tools and materials will be sharp, hot, and dangerous today, so be careful!

June 12: Cut and Run

Papercraft has become increasingly popular in the past couple of years. Using templates and instructions we’ll make intricate folded paper sculptures, and even invent some of our own. Tools will be sharp at this session!

June 19: Tricks of the Trade

Some might call it cheating, but there are a lot of tricks that artists have used to make their work look really good. Today we’ll check out the techniques that make realism easier.

June 26: Stitch Fix

Sewing and weaving can be done using a wide range of materials, for some really cool effects. Crafty ideas on Pinterest and Etsy might inspire you to create some cool fabric, yarn, and sewn objects.

July 10: Tile Style

Making mosaics is a great way to make a very durable, long-lasting work of art. Using stone, glass, ceramic, and masonry, we’ll make some neat mosaics.

July 17: Mask Yourself

What are you hiding with a mask? What identity are you becoming? This session combines the best of fantasy, play, and artistic craftsmanship to create neat masks.

July 24: Bookin' It

No need to move fast, we’re making art books. Books made using folded paper, cloth, and other materials can be really creative and dynamic works of art that are more than just a single image.

July 31: Under Pressure

Drypoint is the process of incising into a plate with a hard-pointed object in order to make an image. Traditionally, plates were made from copper, but today many artists use plexi-glass. For this project, we’ll experiment with both! Also, there’s a really cool big printing press.
