Art & Music of Brazil – Cultures Around the World

This is going to be a very vibrant class! ¬†ūüôā

We’ll be creating our own sets of maracas, creating Carnival masks and maybe even building our own kind of jingle tap (Think tambourine…) !¬† We’ll end the day with a Carnivale type parade.

 

Art & Music of Ancient Egypt – Cultures Around the World

Join us on an adventure of epic proportions as we learn what it might have been like to be an ancient Egyptian scribe!

We’ll take a close look at the artistry and utility of ancient Egyptian carvings, learn why we can still see and read these things after thousands of years, and try our hand at creating our own Egypt inspired art on clay tablets.

Art & Music of Japan – Cultures Around the World

REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE FOR THIS EVENT ON SUNDAY 8-27-17

Beautiful Art of Japan

We will be using a combination of modern and ancient techniques to paint beautiful designs on silk! ¬†We will be using a three-step process, beginning with resist, then a beautiful technique for dyeing in vibrant colors, and finally using black and stencils to finish the details. (Younger children may wish to skip the last step… but will have great fun with the first two!)

When you select your ticket, please choose which size you would like to work on (both are the same price). ¬†We have either a long 8″ by 54″ scarf suitable for older children and adults to work on (yes, moms! ¬†You’re welcome to enjoy this art form as well!) and we have square scarves that are 21.5″ X 21.5″, suitable for younger children (because they will be less overwhelmed by the size!) or for creating a wall hanging. ¬†You can even choose to paint 2 square scarves (just make sure you add the appropriate ticket for that!) and then turn them into a beautiful throw pillow when you get them home.

You will go home with instructions on heat-setting your project, since we do not have the ability to do so on site. You’ll need to have clothes iron to complete this step. ¬†If you plan to make a pillow, you will need to have needle and thread, and either a pillow form or stuffing. ¬†These items will not be supplied to you.


Rich Musical Culture of Japan

We will also be learning about traditional music of Japan, which we will enjoy listening to while we paint, exploring and experiencing some traditional instruments of Asia, and learning a bit about how Chinese and Japanese culture have influenced each other.
