This course will explore the possibilities of printmaking and mixed-media done with what would otherwise be considered garbage. In a society that produces an insane amount of garbage a day, it is important to rethink, reuse and creatively take advantage of the great resource that recycled materials can bring to your art. The environmental benefits of reusing materials contribute to extending the useful life of an object and as a consequence, reduces the amount of waste generated while creating art. It expands our source of materials and gives the artwork an additional sense of purpose.

Materials easily found at home: cardboard, paper bags, plastic utensils, paper towels, old clothes, etc.

Additional materials include: Sturdy paper, water-based paints, some brushes, glue, scissors, and tape!

Photoshop skills and knowledge provide great creative possibilities. For this class, we will work on projects that incorporate Photoshop tools and techniques that will serve students well as they progress into higher education and beyond. This class teaches the basic skills and good work habits that are essential to mastering Photoshop – skills that will prepare you for a lifetime of creating digital art with ease. This class will be both fun and valuable – lessons learned here will enable students to build portfolios suitable for high-school submissions or college applications. At the end of the course, each student will be able to exhibit prints of their work. This class can be a great compliment to the Photography class if you’re thinking of taking two classes!

There are so many reasons to love the art of collage! One beautiful element of collage is its ability to tell stories in a tangible and playful way through a variety of materials, expressive textures and techniques. This class will reference the work of artists like Judith Pfaff, Mickalene Thomas, Robert Rauschenberg, Romare Bearden, Henry Matisse and others. Students will dive into the basic principles of design, patterns, weaving, and sculpture - all through the process based lens of collage. This hands-on online workshop will consider the relationship between 2D and 3D using simple materials. Participants will incorporate found objects and materials into their collage work to create rich textural compositions.
