This workshop incorporates art history with studio practice in a variety of media. Students are guided through hands-on explorations of the elements and principles of art while creating a series of fun and challenging projects. This fall, we will be focusing on these core goals: understanding art in context, developing individual voice/point-of-view, exploring creativity through individual and collaborative projects. Lessons address Illinois State Standards in Fine Arts Education.
