BluSeed Studios announces two one-week art programs for young artists "Adventures in Clay" and/or "Adventures in Color." Each program will focus on specific projects that are designed for a variety of age groups.
The program is designed and developed to inspire young people to explore and discover art through creative projects in clay, drawing , painting, printmaking and papermaking. The program seeks to develop and strengthen creative skills, build self-esteem and confidence, develop a sense of individuality, encourage self-expression, and stimulate imagination in children. Joanna Merry will lead the classes. Space is limited to 10 students and partial scholarships are available!
Merry graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh in May 2011 with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics and printmaking. After graduation, she spent the summer traveling in order to partake in various programs and work exchange opportunities at numerous art schools and centers. Among these were Penland School of Crafts, Alfred University and Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts. Joanna has assisted and taught several children's workshops over the past couple years including the 21st century program and Monday ceramics classes to children of the Ted Kay Center in Plattsburgh.
