After School Arts-To-Go: Storytelling and Illustrating
This is a virtual/on-demand class so you may register anytime.
“Storytelling and Illustrating with Collage-Print and Printmaking” (inspired by Faith Ringgold and Eric Carle).
Young artists will explore printmaking techniques to create their own hand patterned papers. They will learn about the life and art of mixed media artist Faith Ringgold and writer/illustrator Eric Carle as inspiration for their own unique art. Using their printed papers, they will cut and glue two-dimensional paper story quilt collage including written text and also use the collage technique to make an illustration of their favorite animal or imaginative fantasy creature.
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.
