We are excited to be piloting two weeks of Emerging Teens online this summer, mentored by SBMA Senior Teaching Artist, Tina Villadolid.

This program is for students aged 12–15 who want to activate their curiosity and inspiration through an exchange of ideas with artists and peers and hands-on art making at home.

Two different weeks with themed projects will be offered. Materials for each week will be boxed in an Art Pack for families to pick up curbside on Friday, June 19, between 2-4pm for session 1 (June 22 – 26) and on Friday, July 3, between 2-4pm for session 2 (July 6 – 10).

Session 1: Printmaking/Textiles

Let’s take a look at the layers of complex patterns on Japanese textiles, break them down, and create our own using printmaking techniques. Meanwhile, take on the challenge of recreating a work of art from the Museum’s collection using textiles instead of traditional painting and sculpting materials.

Session 2: Sculpture

Investigate the ways in which sculptures seem to either defy gravity or emphasize it. Develop both abstract and symbolic personal imagery in three dimensions while experimenting with both lightweight and solid materials.
