Terracotta Relief Mandalas
What’s a mandala? Participants will be introduced to the rich history of mandalas as well as contemporary radial designs to develop their own one-of-a-kind relief, terracotta clay wall hanging. The best part is we’ll be using air dry terracotta so no need to fire it in the kiln!

Recycled Landscape Collages
Don’t know what to do with those discarded papers? This session encourages using recycled materials to develop engaging landscape collages while also being introduced to the concept of “atmospheric perspective” to imply the illusion of space and distance.

Prints and Pop-Ups
Let’s use the printing press! In this session participants will design a small series of styrofoam plates to print on using a printing press. Bring your own t-shirt or tote bag to print on if you’d like! Participants will also incorporate one of their print designs into an interactive pop-up.
