2023 Summer Programs in Ignite
Shadow Boxes with Teaching Artist Warren Beal
Saturday, June 03, 2023
11:00 AM-12:30 PM OR 2:00-3:30PM
The objects that we throw away, lose or forget about, still have a life afterward. Discover the joy of assemblages by combining objects in your own meaningful way. It begins with an empty cigar box, but will be transformed to show a glimpse inside your mind. Registration begins two weeks prior to start date. Ages 16 and up.
Drop-In Activity: Blind Contour Drawing
Join us in Ignite to make portraits of our community! Blind contour drawing involves making a continuous line following the contours of your subject, without looking at the paper! This drawing technique is used to train your brain to look more closely at your subject and has surprising results. Add it to our community board or take it home! Step-by-step instruction sheets will help you in this self-guided activity. Materials will be available in Ignite while supplies last. Ages 5 and up.
