About the Courses:

Create Like the Great!  Mixed-Media Sculpture (grades 2-5)

Do you LOVE creating artwork?  Explore the artist within you and create with kiln-fired clay, glazes, acrylics, plaster, beads, seeds, reeds, metal/colored wire, bottles, and recycled/found materials.  Turn materials into whimsical functional items - hanging mobiles, figures, and more.  Students will learn about modern/abstract artists who will inspire you (i.e. Calder, Miró, Picasso, Koons, and Dalí).  Their works will influence students to create their own masterpieces!  Come have fun and create incredible projects at the same time.  We may create animals, sports figures, funky shapes, holiday items, and more.

Instructor Michelle Beyman believes art and creating with clay is great for the mind, fingers, and soul.  For more information, please contact Michelle at 203.247.0478 or at mrbeyman@optonline.net.

Clay: Open Studio for Middle Schoolers (grades 6-8)

Bring your creativity to the “Art Room” at the Recreation Center.  Be inspired by the creative work around us by famous and up-and-coming artists in museums and galleries both local and worldwide.  Let the environment inspire you to create a bowl, pot or sculpture.  Build on your clay experience at school and explore different clay techniques – sculpting, coil, pinch, relief, slab, and extruded.  Experiment with textures, patterns, layers, colored slips, and various glaze techniques.  We will incorporate wire, string, and other non-clay materials to finished projects.
