After School Arts-To-Go: Expressing Movement with Art
This is a virtual/on-demand class so you may register anytime.
“Expressing Movement with Art: Charcoal and Paint” (inspired by contemporary artist Heather Hansen, Jackson Pollock, and the science of magnetism and movement).
Young artists will combine art and science to create abstract artwork that explores and captures movement. They will learn about the life and art of Heather Hansen and then explore chalk and charcoal techniques to create and capture motion. The action painting of Jackson Pollack will lead them to experiment with the forces of motion by using paint and small objects to make lines and shapes with paint by rolling and sliding.
On demand: four teaching videos (approximately 20 mins each) are emailed upon registration. The art kit will be shipped to you and the shipping is included in the price. The kit contains all the materials needed for creating alongside the teaching videos and for hours after the video ends.
Jill Hunt is a passionate art educator who recently relocated to Leelanau County and is excited to connect with the area’s arts community. She has guided students ages preschool-adult in a variety of art experiences and workshops as well as creating art curriculum for schools, summer camps, and activities for museums.
