Explore and discover the endless possibilities of different art mediums through creative play. Better understand the unique abilities materials have while celebrating new ways to manipulate and create with them.
With each day focusing on a different material, April Break at the deCordova provides an invitation to imagine, experiment, and create with unusual and tactile art-making materials. This creative and play based class will be taught by one of our experienced instructors.
Each session will include time for conversations, asking questions and the sharing of new ideas and observations. We’ll take time to experiment and play, while creating collaboratively and individually. We will take movement breaks together and build in a time for a snack.
This interactive workshop is limited to 12 students. Participants will receive the zoom information one day prior to the class.
Tuesday – Tubes & Tunnels
Sail the seven seas or travel to the center of the earth in this playful exploration of tubes and tunnels. As we think about shapes, sound and movement, simple cylinders will open worlds of imaginative possibilities.
Prepare for your class by setting up a workspace and gathering supplies.
A studio is a designated space where an artist creates. It holds the artist’s special tools and materials, and helps the artist feel inspired and safe. Remember, every home, family, and artist is different. So all Studios will look different.
A few things to keep in mind as you set up a studio for your class.
Take time to organize and gather your materials before your class begins. To make clean-up easier, think about containers for your supplies, tools and scraps of materials.
Here is a list of supplies that you may want to prepare for your class:
As we will explore a different specific material daily, a few supplies are suggested for each particular class. while these are recommended, invite your child to collect ahead of time for anything else that feels relevant/important/inspires them to the days exploration
