Teacher’s Workshop at MFSM
This summer our museum held a teachers’ workshop in screen printing from August 4 to 8. Seven regional teachers and educators learned about cut stencil, photographic and hand applied stencils for water-based screen printing. Some of them applied this new technique to glass fusing imagery, t-shirts, printing on handmade paper, and using different color paper. A print exchange was held on the last day so everyone traded prints made during the workshop to start their own personal print collection. The teachers represented all grade levels and will apply their newly learned skills in their own classes.
Creating projects based on artists, and artistic movements was the focus of our 2014 Marshall Fredericks Sculpture Museum Art Camps. We looked at works from Banksy, Frank Kupka, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Marshall Fredericks, Wayne Thiebaud, Claes Oldenburg, and many more. Each student was able to experience painting, drawing with various mediums, sculpting and even painting “en plein air.” We tried to give all students the chance to try something they may never have tried before, and experience art in new ways. On our final day of camp, each student was able to have an “art show” of all the artwork they had created for the week. Students were able to explain, and show-off all their hard work! It was a great success!
