Eat a Still-life camp week was very filling. Each day a new technique accompanied a new treat. Not all were sweets, we did incorporate some fruit too. Painting, clay sculptures, soft sculptures (sewing), utilitarian clay work (dessert plates), drawing and digital photography were explored.
Drop-in sessions and classes are continuing throughout the summer. Drop-in hours are 10:00-5:00 Monday through Friday and Saturday 10:00-12:00. Classes can be seen on our websites calendar. Look for future classes and extended hours in September. With a *BYOM* (Bring Your Own Materials) option that lowers the cost of every class to just $10 an hour!! The above are examples of some work created this month. The above right is from our clay class. We have 5 on display in our front window as a hanging herb garden, still get lots of wonderful comments on them. This one has a bit of a twist, a lid. Can't get over those eyebrows!
The chubby bird was created for a father's birthday. I want to know what this little guy is thinking. He has a, "Um, I have something I need to tell you," expression.
As the studio continues to grow, we continue to reach out into our community. Part of Studio 4 Art has been Studio 4 Art on Wheels (in operation for 12 years). This is a camp that I led at Marinwood Recreational Department. It was for ages 5-8. They learned about self-portraiture, screenprinting, relief printing, clay sculptures, color theory, composition, and the creative process!
Studio 4 Art will be at Marinwood Recreational Department this fall too! Look for us on Fridays. Studio 4 Art will also be at Marin Primary, Olive Elementary, and Hamilton. If you would like your school to become enriched with an After School Art Enrichment Program, please contact us. We are also now following the California state guidelines for art education, which helps to replace some of the art education that is being taken out of our school systems.
Thanks for reading through! I never think I have a lot to share, until I set down to compile photos. Future will be shorter posts for easier absorption!
