Art Camp -day 2


100_4680

On day 2 of Art Camp students reviewed their outdoors paintings and used masking tape to cover elements they wanted to save before adding more paint to the images.

100_4679

This process was a new experience for the campers.

100_4695

Campers explored adding thin layers of solid color to allow the previous layers to peek through.

Participants enjoyed exploring many different methods of using crayons in new and unusual methods.

DSCN7987

Learning to melt crayons was lots of fun for all.

DSCN8001

Painting with crayon was another fun experiment for everyone as they learned to draw with a warm, soft crayon.

DSCN7999

We also created crayons from what was left melted in the muffin tin.

DSCN7992

Everyone enjoyed the creative process.

DSCN7993

Crayon shavings were also used to create melted images with the iron.

DSCN7997

Lots of fun accidents and explorations were had by all participants.

Maybe you can join us for our next crayon explosion session in the future at the Art Junction.

Drawing Lab -Week 2


DSCN6833

This week we again focused on the fun in drawing.

DSCN6826

Beginning with some watercolor lines and squiggles, participants began the experimentation into artistic discovery.

DSCN6825

The next step was to find some line, pattern or design to begin the process.

DSCN6829

Participants began to add pencil, pen and marker to their watercolor lines to develop an imaginative image.

DSCN6834

This fun exercise, although challenging, encouraged the creative juices to flow.

DSCN6832

It was fun to build off of others’ ideas and to begin with a few random strokes of watercolor.

DSCN6837

If drawing scares you…maybe you need to come to the drawing lab to let your creative self loose!

Drawing Lab -Week 1


DSCN6672

Drawing Lab began last week with a session of exploration and imagination.

DSCN6670

Using lines and scribbles as a beginning point participants were looking to have fun with the drawing experience…following the creative trail on its imaginative journey.

DSCN6668

Curious images appeared from various collaborations.

DSCN6671

Simple tools were used as a fun time of creative exploration was embarked upon.  Wish you could have joined in the fun…maybe next time!

Bead Day


 

On Saturday, November 3, the Art Junction held its first bead workshop.

Participants explored creating clay beads from Sculpey polymer clay.

Exploring was the name of the day as everyone discovered colors and mixing techniques as well as different types of beads to create.

For most of the participants this was a first experience with creating clay beads; everyone learned new techniques and everyone was surprised by how quickly two hours passed for the workshop.

Here are some examples of the beads created on Bead Day.
