School's Out Workshop: Tree House
Ages: 6-11 Fee: $60 / $52 members Imagine a tree house…then spend the day using wood, paper and clay to construct one of your own. With a focus on creative invention, we’ll help you design a miniature hideaway for your imagination.
Micro Moon Walk with Naomi Cobb
Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Registration: Pre-registration is not required, but it helps us to plan if we know you are coming (email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.) The moon is nearly full on March 6, but it is also at its furthest distance from the earth. This smaller and dimmer looking moon is also known as Crow Moon: sound of crows heard often; or Sap Moon: soon the sap will be rising in the trees. Join naturalist Naomi Cobb on a walk of discovery beneath the light of this late winter moon. You never know what we will find in the moonlight at Lynden, but a bonfire and treats are promised.
Fee: $85/$75 members (all materials included) Registration: Space is limited; advance registration required. If you'd prefer to register by phone, give us a call at 414-446-8794. Learn the technique of marbling to decorate textile surfaces with swirling patterns, reminiscent of that found in natural marble stone. Create completely unique prints, and let the organic process guide your artistic decision-making. This workshop will provide you with all you need to create your own marbled tea towel set and silk scarf. A great opportunity for those who would like opportunities to extend the techniques they have learned in Leslie Perrino's silk scarf painting workshops. Feel free to bring along some high quality paper (such as watercolor paper) for additional marbling experiments. Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking.
Weekly Art Drop-In
Drop into our studio for informal art exploration. Come for 30 minutes or stay for 2 1/2 hours; visit weekly or stop by when you need an after-school activity; bring a friend or sibling or try it on your own. Each week we'll introduce different materials, processes and themes, and get you started on a project. We'll focus on three-dimensional artmaking--though we will also do plenty of painting, drawing and collaging--and make use of Lynden’s special resources: the collection of monumental sculpture and 40 acres of park, lake and woodland. Watch for occasional outdoor artmaking days, too.
Ceramic Handbuilding: Trays, Tiles and Trivets
Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included) Registration: Space is limited; advanced registration required. If you prefer to register by phone, please call 414-446-8794. Working in clay is deeply satisfying, and making pottery allows one to explore aesthetics and function simultaneously. In Trays, Tiles, and Trivets we will work with porcelain slabs. The focus will be on different surface decoration techniques such as stencils, image transfer, various carving methods, and adding underglazes for color. With changes in scale and minor additions our flat designs will magically turn into functional trays, tiles and trivets. Bring textures and objects to press into the clay as well as images and designs that you would like to see take form on your pieces. They will then be fired and finished with a clear glaze to protect the surface and make them functional. Those attending more than one workshop will find plenty to do each time. Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. You will need to return at a later date to pick up your pieces.
