Dip, Fold, Press – DYE! (ages 8 & up)

JULY 10 – 13, 10AM – 2PM (bring lunch)

This exciting, hands-on class introduces fabric dyeing techniques (think tie-dye, but much cooler!) From classic Shibori Japanese dying to natural dyeing with plants, coffee, tea, and more, this class will be messy and full of unexpected results!

Cost: $95 ($80 for YAC Members) 

Artful Adornment: Decorative Art (ages 10 & up)

JULY 10 – 13, 2PM – 4PM

From little looms to tiny tassels, this class is everything art that you can possibly think of! From wearables like bracelets, earrings, and scarves, to traditional wall art like tapestries, ornaments, and even stained glass! This is a great class for creative hands to try out a bunch of different techniques and materials and leave with a lot of beautiful objects. Cost: $60 ($50 for YAC Members)

 Let’s make paste papers, pop-up cards and books! (ages 10 & up)

JULY 17 – 20, 10AM – 2PM (bring lunch)

This week-long class will start with paste paper exploration; they are fun and fast! Next we’ll use all these colorful paste papers to make pop-up cards and simple pamphlet books. Then we’ll move into making a more complex book using recycled materials. This book will make a great sketchbook or journal for students to take home and continue making art! Cost: $95 ($80 for YAC Members)

Painting Lab – mix and make (ages 8 & up)

JULY 17 – 20, 2PM – 4PM

Mix your own paints and learn a variety of techniques to create both abstract and representational art. No experience necessary, in this class, everyone’s an expert!

Cost: $60 ($50 for YAC Members)

ZINES  (ages 8 & up)

JULY 24 – 27, 10AM – 2PM (bring lunch)

Become a published artist! This class will walk through the process of making a ZINE, a small publication in the form of a simple book, usually made from one or few pieces of paper and published in singles or small editions containing hand-drawn and/or collaged images that tell a story, present an idea or mood. We’ll walk through hand-drawn illustrations using artist-grade materials and end up with a box collection to take home! Cost: $95 ($80 for YAC Members) 

 Photography: Art Through the Lens (ages 12 & up)

JULY 24 – 27, 2PM – 4PM

Photography has come a long way from a tiny hole in a box to that device in your pocket. Learn to use the tools you already have to take great pictures over and over again! There will be some fun surprises along the way, including building a camera from a box and a scavenger hunt! Cost: $60 ($50 for YAC Members)
