Week 1: Envision & Create!
June 28th – July 4th
Students will begin this lesson by building a sketchbook all their own to fill with mindful and observational drawings. Sketchbooks have a practice to them involving exploration, experimentation, and self-guided challenge. Students will be provided a series of exercises to fill their sketchbook with drawings, helping them develop a new skill and track their artistic progress. Supplies: paper, stapler (or tape, glue, or string), pencil, coloring supplies (like markers, crayons, or colored pencils), spoon or fork
Formline Art is the traditional art style of Native and Indigenous communities across the Pacific Northwest coastal region. Pattrick Price will bring his experience and skills as a Tlingit Formline artist to introduce students to this traditional art form. This program touches on visual art and social science standards, deepening student understanding and creative relationship to the land and the Native communities that call this region home. Supplies: paper, pencil, pen, and coloring supplies (markers or watercolors preferred)
