What you'll learn in this kids art class:

The Teens will learn many different technical aspects of both printing and dyeing throughout the week by designing a print, mixing dyes, and of course screen printing their design onto fabric.

By the end of this week students will be equipped to coat and expose their own screen and will complete the class with fabric that is truly their own.

Textiles for Teens Summer 2012 is a pilot program at the Textile Arts Center offering three one week fiber arts classes introducing teens to the world of textile arts.

These classes; Weaving, Printing with Dyes, and Sewing+Fashion, will be comprised of instruction hours as well as free open studio time. Classes are located in our Artists in Residence studio space, and allow for students to work in shared studio spaces within the larger studio space.  

Participants will benefit from a knowledge of textile history while attaining an awareness of its various applications in the field of fine arts, product + fashion design, as well as textile design. Students will be inspired through hands on art making, engage in critical thinking, and build on their abilities to take part in group critique. 

Whether you are here to create portfolio pieces or just for fun, this is a great summer experience. Classes are divided by age (13-15 & 16-18) Students share a studio space with one other students, giving them the room to explore and the experience of their own studio space.
