Instructed by: Allison Smith
Our adventure kit for this month takes you on an "exploration" of five art mediums -- perfect for the young artist who wants to sample different types of art! You'll learn about the elements and principles of design and explore ways to create abstract art. While on your art journey, you'll learn how art expresses emotion and try your hand at some projects sure to stretch your creativity!
This kit provides detailed, illustrated directions -- so you can get off that computer and create -- as well as links to online instructional videos by visual arts educator, Allison Smith, who will guide you step-by-step through each project. Each kit includes five full projects, one for each day of the week. Many materials are re-usable for you to practice your art again and again!
1. Drawing: Focus on Line
2. Painting: Focus on Color
3. Textile: Focus on Texture
4. Sculpture: Focus on Shape
5. Ceramics: Focus on Size and Space
Each kit includes: oil pastels, brush, acrylic paints, painters tape, styrofoam forms, yarn, canvas board, paper, ruler, stencils, wire, beads, air dry clay, rolling pin, needle tool, fettling knife and modeling tool, instructions
Supplies students should have at home: paper towels, a plastic bag, a piece of cardboard and your imagination!
These kits will ship the week of July 20.
