Ages 7 to 10
A spellbinding series of themed workshops celebrating the dark arts, and crafts, of the season.
4 weeks: Saturdays, October 1, 8, 15 and 22, 2022
11 AM – 1 PM
Includes all materials, see workshop details below.
In the kick-off class, we will make a Message cube. The Message Cube was introduced as part of Quincy’s last show at Lyceum, which focussed on methods of divination. A take on the Magic 8 Ball, the message cube is gently rolled in your hands or on a soft surface. Ask a question and see what the cube says!
Using a wooden cube, students will have access to a variety of materials including image and stencil transfers. Students will learn how to work on a multi-sided piece and about the various sealing materials so that the art may be handled regularly. The students will come away with a cool, functional, tactile piece of art.
This week we’ll explore basic acrylic painting techniques by painting a spooky night scene. Using cradled wood gallery panel and acrylic paint, students will be walked through basic blending and hard edge painting methods.
Since before the Victorian Era, people have been obsessed with capturing the dearly departed in photos and art, including taking portraits of, and sometimes with the deceased!
Building on the skills from the last 2 classes, students will make their own ghostly images using either a collage or painted background, and some basic image transfer methods to create a layered, haunting scene.
Stowe your stash in a bespoke bag of your own making! Make your own Trick or Treat bag using heat transfer flock and vinyl. Students will have access to a variety of pre-cut transfers, letters, beads and shapes. We’ll learn about layering and media layout, heat transfer methods and mirror-image applications.
