Use your love for color and design while creating art on fabric. Create banners, scarves, t-shirts, and more while painting on silk, learning tie-dye, shibori, embroidery, and other textile arts forms. Please bring a white cotton pre-washed t-shirt to the first class.
Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2019 are invited to register for this class.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of class on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Exploring Fabric Arts class with the afternoon Drawing and Painting class, and Lunch Option 4.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
