For our shortened summer session, we'll be focusing on introducing students to photography and printmaking. This session will include: potato printing and solar printing. Digital, Polaroid, slide, and moving images. We'll also set up a photography studio complete with a background and lights, will be learning about natural light and artificial lighting, and will be setting up our own still life images to capture!

Our Earth Art instructors are professional photographers/artists and educators, with art degrees in photography, printmaking, fine art, and design. they'll be bringing in both vintage and contemporary photography and print equipment for the students to get hands-on with.

"Learning Together": Fish Hook Workshop (7/28)
Love going fishing with your kids? Or maybe you've been thinking it's time for their first fishing experience? Then this is the perfect workshop for you! 

Our "Learning Together" workshops are a place where parent and child will not only be learning new skills together, but you'll be making items to take home, and having fun together in the process! This is also the LAST Earth Art workshop opportunity before the end of summer break/schools are back in session.

Today we'll be making fishing hooks in class for you to take home, and then offering some basic tips to ensure your next fishing trip with the family is a little safer. Class will begin with a demonstration of how the hooks are made- we'll turn metal from a solid into a liquid, pouring it into a hook mold, and then prep the hook for paint. Participants will then get to paint their own fishhooks with special marine paint.

Next, we'll cover a few basics like the essential tools every person should have in their tackle box, how to tie a fishing knot, we'll demonstrate how to remove a hook from skin, and we'll help your little one safely practice hooking a worm on their hook.

This class is geared towards children ages 4-14 years old and their parents. If this is your first Earth Art class with us, please arrive 5 minutes early to fill out some forms.

Zen Art Workshop (8/16)
Our classroom will be transformed into a peaceful, relaxing oasis today as we focus our bodies and minds on creating art that soothes. We'll start class with a story to center us, followed by a short yoga session. Then, we'll transition into "open art" time as we listen to music and use natural materials to draw and paint with. Students may choose to draw or paint abstractly, putting their feelings onto paper, or may choose to focus on still life objects that will be strewed about in front of them. 

This class is geared towards children ages 4-10 years old, and is a "drop off" class. (Adults may sit and read at the tables outside of the studio inside Champion Kids or take siblings to Open Play in one of the gyms on-site.)
