May Arts Workshops line-up at ArcWorks Community Art Center

I am really excited to share the listing of our May arts workshops.  We have been hard at work, trying to get some basic workshops together.  We would love to see each and everyone of you at one of the classes.  If you have any questions, please contact me directly at: mkirkpatrick(at)ne.arc.org or 978-531-7146

Here is the listing for our May Arts Workshop:

Mother’s Day Craft: Basic Embroidery for Kids!

Saturday, May 5 9:30AM to 12PM

Instructor: Merritt Kirkpatrick

Fee: $40

Age 8 to 14

No matter your child’s age or ability, kids are taught three basic stitches, embroidered on felt and framed with a decorative wooden embroidery hoop. We will make a Mother’s Day present they will be proud to give you! All supplies, including blunt end needles, are included.

Magic Ball Scarf: Beginning Knitting

Saturday, May 12 & 19 from 9:30AM to 11:30AM

Instructor: Jan Pacak

Fee: $40

Age 10 to Adult

Learn 3 basic knitting techniques! You will make a beautiful summer-weight scarf using the magic ball technique! Rarely do we use up every inch of yarn that we buy for a project. Eventually, most knitters are overwhelmed with leftovers. Here's a fun way to use them up and create a beautiful knitted item at the same time. It's called "magic ball" knitting, and we will use beautiful yarns provided in the cost of the workshop!

Basic Cartoons for Kids

Saturday, May 12 & 19 from 1PM to 3PM

Instructor: Jason Lapham

Fee: $50

Age 7 to 12

This exciting class will teach children many aspects of cartooning, from basic cartooning using simple shapes through to drawing advanced cartoons from television. Starting with the basic circle, your child will learn the basics of facial expression and proportion, all while creating a world of character and motivation. We will then move on to situations to draw, and place the characters in. Just paper and a pencil will be enough to take your child on this journey!

Color Class for Pre-Teens and Teens

Wednesday, May 17, 24 & 31

5Pm to 7PM

Instructor: Olga Gernovski, exhibiting artist, member of Rockport Art Association and Marblehead Art Association

Fee: $85

This class introduces your child to the knowledge and practical training of color harmony, and gives them the opportunity to grow as young artists.  The curriculum for the introduction of color combination for a painting has been designed for 10 to 15 year olds to strengthen their knowledge in art, and help further develop their pictorial skills.  Each class will start from a demonstration along with an explanation.  They will then follow-up with a color exercise.

Beginners Embroidery for Teens and Adults

Instructor: Merritt Kirkpatrick

Fee: $55

Age 13 & Up

This class will provide all the guidance necessary to embroider a small design using a number of the most used stitches. Apart from having fun, these sessions will give you the confidence to try some of the more specialized classes.
