Holiday Break Class Descriptions:
All participants will create projects under the same theme, but will use different techniques and materials based on age of student.  Classes will be organized by age.  Projects will vary daily.  We provide projects that introduce children to new art materials, artists, and concepts that offer the students a chance to dive deep into their creativity and art making.  Older participants have the opportunity to utilize the Art Department’s facilities, gaining exposure and experience with advanced equipment and software.  Our instructors are art instructors at SUNY Oswego or graduate level Art Education majors.

Project Themes:

Day 1: Create a Soft Sculpture:
Students will create soft sculptures inspired by their imagination. At the end of the day students will have their own creative “pillow” to cuddle and use to decorate their room.

Day 2: Build a World:
Using 2d and 3d skills to develop their project, students will use mix media materials to create a world and characters to live in it.

Day 3: Multicultural Day:
Students will create works of art inspired by patterns from around the world.
