After-School Makers: Gemstone Trees with Heather Kushum Sheedy

Session 4: Wednesday, October 9th 3:30-5:30pm

After-School Makers is a supportive studio environment where teens are encouraged and empowered to dream, explore, create, and thrive. Each Wednesday, makers are introduced to a variety of contemporary art projects and mediums with local professional artists. Working individually or collaboratively each session, makers are challenged to pursue their unique interests and goals. Our program is designed for teens, Grades 7-12, who are eager to refine their artistic skills, experiment with new mediums, discuss new ideas, and develop a well-rounded portfolio.

All materials provided. Light refreshments included.

Project: Students will be guided to create their own unique gemstone tree on a rock base using wire wrapping techniques.
