Virtual After School Art Session 1
“Building 3D Art: Sculptures and Structures” (Inspired by Alexander Calder and Tara Donavan)
Young artists will create three-dimensional art by ‘building’ with a variety of materials using critical thinking skills and their imaginations. They will learn about the life and art of Alexander Calder and contemporary artist Tara Donavan as inspiration for their own unique art.

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. Some of the media experiences Jill has explored with her students include drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, cartooning/animation, glass fusing, wet felting, digital art/photography, and hand building with clay and on the potter’s wheel. Her personal inspiration comes from artists who use color and shape in dramatic imagery as well as from the delight her students exhibit in their art-making experiences.
