Here, middle school and high school aged artists can gather to learn new techniques, express, share, and
inspire. Making art can be a solitary experience, but we learn so much from one another! Sharing opportunities
for learning about a different art media, former middle school art teacher Sarah Rydecki will give
students the chance to acquire some new skills that can be applied to their own unique interests and
artwork style. Pick and choose which weeks to attend or sign up for all six!
July 12: Small Ceramics— Students will view and be inspired by the Ceramics Invitational Exhibit, learn some
basic building techniques, and then have the chance to create several small clay pieces. Students who are unable to take additional sessions will be able to pick up pieces later after they have been fired.
July 19: Ceramic Slab Cylinders— Start with this basic form then apply other techniques to make it
July 26: Character Design— Walk through the steps of drawing for ideas and planning. Explore a variety of art
supplies to bring the character to life.
August 2: Paint Ceramics, Free Choice Finish Characters, Paint & Print— Students who joined prior
sessions (either July 12, 19, or 26) will paint and/or continue work on previous pieces. Those joining for the day
will be able to learn and use some fun acrylic painting and printing techniques.
August 9: Mixed-Media Collage— Students are encouraged to bring photos, scraps, and keepsakes that can be
added to a work of art. Some image transfer techniques will be taught.
August 16: Watercolor— Students will have the opportunity to learn about, play with and create using a
variety of techniques. The Michigan Watercolor Society Exhibit may inspire ideas!
