July is HOT with happenings…

By Jenn Korolenko, Education Assistant

June is leaving us in the dust (or should we say mud with all the rain?).  July in the Education Department at Grounds For Sculpture brings fun and educational workshops for all ages.
Check them out!!!

Saturday, July 16th
Printing and Drawing in 3D on Ceramics
Workshop Dates: Sat. July 16, Sun. July  17, and
Sat. July 23
Time: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Make functional art! During this intensive three-session workshop, students create drawings by pressing found objects or carving directly into clay, which is then used to create a plaster mold; a great technique for creating large bowls or platters. Molds can be taken home and used again. Bring a smock and rubber gloves as well as small textured objects, images from magazines or your own drawings for inspiration. Cost includes clay, plaster, glazes, use of tools and firing time. Instructor: Debbie Reichard.
Price: $245 Members, $265 non-Members


Saturday, July 23rd
Young Artist Workshops
Time: 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Join us for a potpourri of children’s fun! In these one-hour, hands-on workshops, kids create works of art inspired by our current exhibitions.  Workshops for ages 6 to 9 are Young Inventors and Nature-Inspired Sculpture and for 10 to 14 year olds, The Giant Timepiece and Surl’s Swirls.
Price: $12 Members, $15 non-Members. Materials fee is per session, per child. To register in advance, please call (609) 586-0616. Students who pre-register for these workshops will receive free admission to Grounds For Sculpture the day of the workshop.
