If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, this is the course for you! This week long workshop is a fun way unleash your energy and creativity. We will practice many techniques for beginners and students who have worked with clay before. Wedging, centering, lifting, opening, tapping, trimming…before long you will be talking like potter. We will learn all of these terms and how they work, ALL HANDS ON! From throwing your form, getting it off of the wheel to trimming a neat foot in your pieces and adding extras. You will make functional bowls, mugs and learn how to add decoration and texture. All finished pieces will be food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe.
July 12 – 15 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Do you like Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic, Munchkin, Settlers of Catan, and/or Monopoly? Have you ever wanted to make your very own card game or board game to play with friends and family? In this two week class students are challenged to invent their own card game in the first week, and then invent a board game the second week. Students will learn fundamental game design and then make up characters, draw animals, monsters, and items and figure out mathematical systems (luck vs skill) that make the games fun to play. The class teaches students important design elements, function, communication, text, rule book writing, drawing, composition, color theory, character development, world building, mathematics, probability, and repetition. The final day we pull out all the cards together and spend the final day playing the games invented.
This session is a collaboration with Two Rivers Performing Arts School (TRPAS) and open to students in grades 3 – 7. Okay, class, pop quiz time. What do you get when you mix a young substitute teacher with a classroom full of the seemingly dumbest (and funniest) pupils found anywhere? A wise-creaking musical that’s sure to put a smile on the principal’s face, that’s what. When Miss Quackenbush takes over a class at the Little Red Schoolhouse, she soon discovers why the previous teacher had a nervous breakdown. Bad poetry, mice in the lunch boxes, and a student with the measles is enough to drive anyone crazy. Unless the likable but hare-brained pupils can pass a simple exam, they won’t advance to the next grade. It’s one inane answer after another as Miss Quackenbush tries to promote this bunch of block heads outta here. It won’t be easy, though. Only a fool would want to leave this school.
