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