What's the story? That is the question we are asking as students create their paintings in this awesome new class. Works of art often tell stories. Artists can tell a story in many ways—by using a series of images representing moments in a story, or by selecting a central moment to stand for the whole story. We will be exploring both!
Together with Lindsay, from our beautiful little St. Catharines studio in Ontario, we have developed an interesting storytelling curriculum using printmaking techniques like Gelli plates, brushwork, lino blocks, stamps, and templates.
Through guided step-by-step instruction, students will learn how to:
- Create a storyline in a visual medium
- Printmaking, collage & mixed media techniques
- Create a short stop motion animation that they produce & direct
- Assemble their final canvas to bring home!
All supplies are included BUT students need to bring an iPhone or iPad to complete their stop motion animation.
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
And ... Good news! Since we have started adding more specialty classes, we noticed our Exploratory Class students also signing up for a Specialty class or two.
This is so great as with the Exploratory Classes students are introduced to lots of new projects, techniques & mediums but then continue to hone their skills & interests in the Specialty Classes. The Early Bird Deal takes 30% OFF the specialty class price when they are already registered in the 13 Week Fall exploratory class. Please note if you are wanting to take advantage of this deal please register for the Exploratory class first and then register in the Storytelling class using the code: MORESPECIAL.
