Multi-Class Residency Workshops:

Our workshops engage students in personally relevant art projects that promote the creative re-use of everyday materials.
We offer K-12th grade, adult, and multigenerational Residency Workshops which are a 1 hour minimum duration per day and generally are offered as a multiple-week workshop series. Each workshop meets grade-level appropriate Common Core standards in Visual Art & Science. We customize all workshops to fit the needs of each group and can also create workshops based on a particular theme or material. Workshop fees vary according to the selected workshop, duration, and the number of participants.

Students will investigate their surroundings and make connections about the landscape, manmade world, and community. Experimenting with sketching, paper-making, and collage they will create a collaborative large-scale interlocking paper “quilt”. The final piece, which represents the essence of the surrounding environment, will be crafted out of handmade recycled paper created from natural and discarded materials.
