They will work with colors in both two and three-dimensional art to develop their artistic skills. Students in grades 3-4 will learn 2D design and 3D creation techniques. They will create woven owls, a stained glass fixture and a layered cutout using paper landscape scenes. Students in grades 5-8 will design and construct their own haunted house by creating a patterned fabric by carving stamps and transferring the design with fabric paint.
