Art in the Meadow (For Teens)
Dates: July 12-16
Course Description: This week-long course geared towards teenage students will use the meadow for an intensive study of plant life, an exploration in history, and art-making possibilities. We’ll work in drawing, watercolor, and lino-cut printmaking. We’ll press plants, learn to identify them and figure out their role in the delicate ecosystem of a meadow. We’ll experiment with making our own pigments and explore the creative possibilities that plants offer.
Cost: $225 members / $250 non-members
Materials: Students must supply their own watercolor set and brushes. We recommend a pan set of 12 or more colors. Crayola sets are OK, but professional brands like Sakura-Koi, Faber-Castell or Winsor Newton produce much better quality paints. If you plan to use the paints again it is worth spending more for a quality set. The pan set allows you to conveniently carry the paints outdoors and mix your paints directly in the pan. We will provide paper, lino-cut tools and inks, as well as any other supplies that are needed.
