ClassDescription
Drawing from LifeLearn fundamental skills and develop better control of drawing. We will learn to craft and draw a still life with props, observe through nature drawing, and do fast sketches and long drawings. Students make their own sketchbooks to fill with observational drawings using classical methods and deepen observation. Materials include graphite stick, marker, pen and pencil, and sketch paper. Scaled for different age groups.
Zine MeansWhat does “zine” mean? Learn how to make the popular tiny books that everyone loves! The zine-making techniques in this class introduce students to paper folding as an artform, increase dexterity and are easy to share including loooooong accordion books, 8-page and 12-page zines, groupwork zines and one colossal zine. The magic of zines is continued with drawing and collage about favorite subjects; every zine is unique! This class is scaled for all ages and incorporates collage, illustration, and creativity for every student who loves to read and share their own stories. Materials include drawing and office paper, drawing tools and collage supplies.
Your Daily Journal (Drawing & Writing)In this class, students explore writing and drawing skills. Students make their own journal to use in response to writing and drawing prompts based on daily themes, to practice skills of interpretation, self-expression and communication using writing and drawing. Introduction of easy poetry forms like haiku and lost-and-found collage exercises encourage creativity and free association, with writing and drawing components. See your student grow in their ability to write and draw to express themselves! Materials include pencils and pens, drawing tools, office and drawing paper, magazines, and collage supplies.
Clay Creations- Hand-BuildingIn this clay class, students will learn a variety of clay techniques such as scratch and attach, slab building, and coil building. Students will practice a new skill and work on a different project each day. Students will get to take home their work after it’s fired & glazed! Monday-Thursday students will create work, and Fridays are open glazing sessions for all clay students.
Wheel Throwing for Ages 13+We are very excited to offer wheel throwing pottery making for ages 13+! Join us in TAC’s ceramics studio to learn the fundamentals of how to throw on a wheel and create a variety of wheel thrown wares- bowls, cups, and more! Students will get to bring home their work after it’s fired & glazed! Monday-Thursday students will create work, and Fridays are open glazing sessions for all clay students.
Book MakingA deep dive exploratory class on different ways to create books! Students will learn a variety of book binding techniques while creating their own sketchbooks, journals, comics, or storybooks!
Digital Art Making (ages 13+)Dive into digital art with illustration and animation in a 5-day intensive summer class. Students will practice with Procreate and Procreate Dreams to build digital art skills for creating characters, comics, short animation and original digital design. Students will come away with a digital art portfolio and beginning skills in digital media. Artwork can be kept on a student art website, managed and owned by the instructor at creativeaccessart.com. This class is perfect for students who wish to practice digital art for concept art, comics, and animation, or who would like to explore digital art as beginners. 
Game DesignIn this class, students will work together to create a collaborative game map, including characters, objects, challenges and objectives. Using a multitude of art skills, materials, tools and abundant imagination, students will create all elements of a game as they play it. Each day will be a new task and a new level in their game, with students making decisions for how to change things, what rules to follow… and what rules to break! This multi-media and SEL-informed class will encourage community collaboration and creative thinking for students who are interested in making and playing games, character design and crafting. Learning practice includes social-emotional skills in self- and social-awareness, collaborative problem-solving, and decision-making.
