Merideth FerrellSilk Painting Together

Merideth Ferrell has been part of the All About Art Summer Camp since it began. This summer she will teach students how to create colorful designs and images on silk. Students will work together to create a large silk mural.

Tom MillerBuilding Community 3D Structures

Cottage Grove artist Tom Miller will teach students a range of paper-building techniques to design their own, three-dimensional home space, that will be connected to the rest of the class in a vibrant community grid. This giant, collaborative sculptural work becomes a visual metaphor for the interconnectedness and strength of our diverse community.

Alex MauneyCollaborative Songwriting and Storytelling

With Eugene artist Alex Mauney, students will build and gather around a paper campfire before going on an imaginative journey of their own devising in this collaborative songwriting and storytelling program. Harmonicas in the key of C will be given to each student to keep. Turn-based gameplay using dice and a class-made map serves to provide story and material for the original songs students will write together.
