Clay Time
Saturdays: July 16, 23, 30; 10-11:30 am
Allow us to take care of the mess as your young artist gets elbow-deep in the mud. Students will look at examples of ceramic artworks in the Museum before modeling and glazing a clay sculpture of their own.
Instructor: CaSandra Johnson

Making Faces
Saturdays: August 6, 13, 20; 10-11:30 am
Everyone loves to make a funny face! In this class we’ll investigate portraits in the gallery and look into mirrors to understand how the face is put together. In the studio we’ll make collages and paintings full of character and expression.
Instructor: CaSandra Johnson


Strung Up
Saturdays: July 16, 23, 30; 1-3 pm
Joslyn Members: $35; General Public: $45
Learn to create sculptural artworks using wrapped and woven yarn and string. A special exhibition featuring fiber art by Sheila Hicks will show us that spectacular things can be made by twisting, wrapping, weaving, and knotting simple fibers.

Screen Printing: Make it Mine!
Saturdays: August 6, 13, 20, 27; 1-3 pm
Joslyn Members: $50; General Public: $60
Screen printing is an easy way to take a t-shirt, book bag, or even a pillowcase and make it your own. We’ll identify symbols and shapes in the gallery to inspire our personal logo design. We’ll create simple stencil screen prints to make our mark on a t-shirt and anything else you want to bring to the studio!
