Social Sculpture, Clay, Thingamakids
Social Sculpture / Reduce Reuse Refurnish !! We will explore balance, weight, and aesthetics to construct unusual furniture out of used cardboard. By the end of the week we will have a banquet using the objects we’ve made. Artist: Selena Matranga
Students will first learn about basic methods and techniques of hand-‐building clay sculpture, like coil, slab, pinch, and free-‐form. They will also learn on how to use molds and stamps on clay, and finally how to bind parts to make a good structure for their work.
Sessions will emphasize student practice in which they will conceive, sculpt, and paint a sculpture of their own, utilizing the techniques they’ve learned.
Thingamakids Through interactive maker workshops that incorporate music, movement, visual art and science, CAMPers gain a unique and well-rounded experience in creativity, collaboration and experimentation. CAMPers explore and learn to discover random treasures wherever they are; hand-create their own engaging instruments and sound props out of recycled materials, and delve into the magic of performance as they combine creativity, musical expression and storytelling.
STart CAMP is open to CAMPers entering grades 1-5
Capacity: 45-48 CAMPers
