  • Crafts – Explore decorative art including pottery, basket weaving, paper, and more.

  • Digital Photography – Learn to tell a story through photos. Concepts of photography and artistic consideration may be covered.

  • Mixed Media – Create art where more than one medium is being used, combining traditional and non-traditional media.

  • Painting – Explore one of the major forms of creative expression through a variety of paint mediums; tempera, watercolor, acrylic etc.

  • Drawing – Explore one of the major forms of creative expression using a variety of drawing mediums: pencil, pastel and charcoal.

  • Sculpture – Learn to create three-dimensional artwork using clay, papier-mâché, found objects, plaster, and other materials.

  • Fiber Art – Learn to use natural and synthetic fibers to create artwork by sewing, dyeing, embroidering or felting.

  • Street Art – Explore the history, meaning, mediums, and processes used to create artwork outside traditional art venues. Painting, stenciling, poster art, sticker art, street installation, etc.

  • Illustration – Learn to design images intended for integration in media such as posters, flyers, magazines, books and comics.
