Middle School Art Academy Photography

Anyone can take a picture, but to become a photographer you have to see the world around you in a unique way. In this class we’ll cover photography basics such as composition, exposure and lighting, then go beyond that to learn how to take creative portraits of your friends, action shots, artistic nature photos and abstract pictures. Participants should have a camera with some adjustable settings (digital is best) and be prepared to share new photos for our hands-on workshops each day. Fee includes a print package of your best work on archival-quality paper.

Middle School Art Academy Small Metals & Simple Metal Techniques

View and Register

If you like to wear or exhibit your creativity you may enjoy small metals. Students will bring in small metal items and alter the items to re-purpose them and create items such as candle holders, wind chimes or jewelry! This is a cold connection workshop that explores using rivets to join metals and/or nonmetal pieces together. This simple technique can be used to make projects with elevated areas, moving parts or multi-layered work without the use of a torch. Drill and rivet found metal parts together. Hammer and bend parts into different shapes.  Come explore with lots of hands on creativity.
