Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum
Session titles include:
1. Wonders of the Natural World- Lets use our observational skills to explore nature. Come work outside and in the classroom focusing on different painting and drawing techniques. Utilizing still lifes, the landscape, and their imagination, students will create varied works using wet and dry media.
2. Drawing from Sculpture- Observational drawing is an essential skill for any artist. Throughout history artists have developed their observational and compositional expertise while drawing from sculptures. Create portfolio worthy work using charcoal pencil on hand toned paper while drawing from works by acclaimed sculptors.
3. Building, Forming, and Exploring 3-D- Explore sculpting while experimenting with a variety of materials and subjects. Materials include, but are not limited to; wire, paper, and air dry clay. We will begin with exploring each material and seeing what we can do with it, and then begin constructing our original works.
4. Storytelling/Puppet/Marionette Making- Discover types of puppets from around the world, and then learn how to create your own marionettes from start to finish. Our class will explore techniques of designing characters, making technical drawings, constructing, painting, and assembling our marionettes.
5. Claymation- Create your very own original animation! Students will think up a short scene, create a corresponding storyboard, and build clay characters. Finally students will build the sets and capture their characters in action!
6. Stop Motion- We will look into various stop motion artists, and then make our own stop motion animation. Students will think up a short scene, create a corresponding storyboard, build a puppet, and then bring them to life.
