Summer 2013 -Thank you for joining us this summer!

Thanks to everyone who made our summer studios so fun ~

We experimented with Marshmallows and Sticks, raced simple machines and struggled with Rube Goldberg inventions. We made sculptures that balanced, towers of rocks and hot glue that couldn't. We made plaster planets, see through drawings of creatures, painted balloons and the galaxy they belonged in. We tried painting and dripping with wax and glue resists on canvas and cotton, making something familiar and abstract at the same time, by adding dye and paint. We did ice painting and ice orb sculptures too. We played Pictionary Tag(too fun!)and Alien Attack, Night Watchman and Wink, and enjoyed our time together discussing our ideas, sharing our opinions, and inventing games to play in the Lego Zone.
ArtClub Afterschool
will start again Tuesdays and Wednesdays in October. details/link posted shortly!

Drawing Clubs: Reflection Portraits, Bob and Round Things - Thankyous 2012=2013

Drawing Clubs: Reflection Portraits, Gesture Drawing and Round things ...were a fun way to finish the school year! Here are some excerpts: 
We drew ourselves in the mirror...well actually ON
mirror, then we drew ourselves FROM the mirror in a few ways.

This is Bob. Tuesday's Artists made Bob.
So they could draw Bob.
We all drew Bob. 


...and we drew round things like Marbles and balloons in many different ways:

We drew marbles on Mylar and stuffed animals in motion
and tried to fill a jar of marbles too...

Our very last Wed. drawing studio, so calm you wouldn't
guess we were also getting ready to show our work!
 Round treats at our show.
