Option 1:
CPE 1010 | Paper & Book Arts in the Classroom
Eleonore Lee | Picante Paper Studio & Book Arts Studio | Santikos Building

Learn simple and basic methods of creating handmade paper and bookbinding structures that can be applied in any classroom. The first part of the workshop will focus on the fun, physical, and sensory process of papermaking - a method that can tie in to plant biology, chemistry and sustainability. The second part will focus on basic principles of bookmaking and binding methods that lend many options for cross-discipline lesson plans.

Option 2:
CPE 1011 | Metal "Selfies
Sarah Roberts | Willson Metals Studio | Santikos Building

Explore ways of transforming the ubiquitous "selfie" into a copper or brass sculpture. Demonstrations will include using a smart phone app to simply and quickly abstract a self-portrait and how to translate the image to metal using etching and sawing. Simple forming and cold-connections will also be covered.

Friday, June 21 | 9:30am – 4:30pm

Option 1:
CPE 1012 | Panoramic Drawing
Katie Pell | Drawing Studio | Santikos Building

Utilizing techniques employed in photography as well as our natural observation, work collaboratively to create two panoramic (extended point of view) drawings. In the first, emphasis will be on hand-eye coordination to create a freehand representational still life. In the second drawing, two-point perspective will be utilized to create an imaginary cityscape. Both of these projects open up the classroom to the possibilities of working large in a small space as well as working collaboratively in the classroom.

Option 2:
CPE 1013 | Color Theory with Fiber Reactive Dyes
Casey Galloway | Droste Design Studio | Santikos Building

Learn the full spectrum of color theory utilizing the safe and easy to use fiber reactive dyes.
