Our regular May classes are exploring art with metal all month.
We began our month with a metal tooling project using aluminum foil, tacky glue, and shoe polish; and, we're wrapping up our month with continuous line drawings turned into wire sculptures! The challenge in working in three-dimensions is that we have to abide by the laws of gravity!
So excited to share this project with our budding artists in June! Check it out:
Artists will use sterling silver wire in two gauges to shape a bangle bracelet to the correct size. Once the metal is shaped, we'll use a wire-wrapping and beading technique to fill-in the design. Each artist will make one bracelet over the period of two classes.
Tools used: jeweler's pliers, small anvils, and hammers.
We're gearing up for summer classes and that starts with our instructors making all sorts of examples! It's a rough job being an Orange Easel Instructor, but someone has to do it.
First up is our Clay Action Figures. Young artists will design their own action figure and then bring it to life using a polymer clay. We'll design and sculpt during the first class period, and then apply paint and glossy varnish in the second class.
Watch here to see a figure come to life:
On the afternoon of Mother's Day, ten special families joined us to make art together! We hope you left with not only a beautiful piece of art, but also some great memories!
