June 16-20 & 23-27, 2014, 10 a.m.-Noon, Freedman Gallery, $75/week or $125/both weeks
Week 1: Invention and Structure with wood, paper, paint and cardboard – participants will design and create miniature model treehouses. Students will examine how trees have been represented in visual art throughout the ages, and using drawing and collage techniques, will create their own images of trees. Week 2: Architecture and Landscape: Working with local artist Amanda Deibert, who’s back from an exciting year of teaching in Africa, students will collaborate on a group project to build their own “treehouse” from recycled materials and found objects. Music and storytelling activities will be part of each week.
