Session 1 : June 10 - June 14
For students working on a portfolio for art school applications or those who simply love to draw and doodle, this week is a foundational class in line, tone, composition, and color. Bring a sketch book and your imagination and be motivated by Louisiana landscapes and the architecture of Old Mandeville. We will have walking field trips for drawing outdoors in the morning then develop watercolor, collage and embroidery skills on larger works informed by the morning sketches. Other observational drawing and painting skills will increase with inspiring and wacky still lifes done in a range of media.
Session 2 : June 17 - June 21
Students will broaden their creativity and build their skills as they are introduced to a variety of fiber art techniques. Wet felted bracelets, needle felted animals and embroidered self- portraits will inspire teens to develop work that is personal as they discover new to ways to creatively problem solve. Enroll your artist today and watch their potential come alive!

Session 1 : June 17 - June 21 12:00pm - 3:00pm
In this session of Young Artists Studio, we will dive into color theory and the development of how the use of color changed and evolved art movements and abstraction. Students will begin their journey working with value and patterns of light and dark in a grayscale before creating a color system that best suits their painting at hand. We will explore patterns of light and dark using ink before developing the composition further with different degrees of color abstractions.
Session 2 : June 24 - June 28 4:00PM - 7:00 pm
In this session of Young Artists Studio, we will explore the history of a local treasure, Newcomb Pottery, as well as the distinctive decorative style that makes Newcomb College Pottery so unique and special to Louisiana. Students will learn to make their own functional items such as cups, bowls and vases on the pottery wheel and will hand build platters using a slab roller.
Newcomb Pottery, also called Newcomb College Pottery, was a brand of American Arts & Crafts pottery produced from 1895 to 1940. The company grew out of the pottery program at H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College, the women's college now associated with Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
