Mucky Buddies – Take + Make Craft Kit @ Old Masonic Hall
Jan 31 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Mucky Buddies - Take + Make Craft Kit @ Old Masonic Hall

 

A spin off of the Muddy Buddies kids ceramics class, Mucky Buddies is a non-ceramics sculpture class. We’ll make our own sculpture and art materials using mostly household items and explore different ways of creating and having fun with our homemade materials. We’ll make slime, salt dough, model magic and raid the recycle bin for project materials as well, and then sculpt all kinds of creations from monsters to holiday ornaments. Think mad-scientist meets artist. For most projects, things will get messy, so be prepared. Kids might want to create a “mad artist” notebook, to make notes on our experiments. Great for all members of the family!

Ages under 6 years will require hands on assistance of their parents or older siblings.

Each kit will contain projects for two individuals. A limited number of craft kits are available so only 2 kits per customer please.

Craft kits will be available for pick up from 9am-9pm Tuesday-Sunday from Washington Ave side of Old Masonic Hall. Please allow 24 hours between reservation and pickup.  Video tutorials to complete each activity will be posted on our YouTube and Facebook same day.

To complete this class at home you will need:

Something to protect your work area like newspaper, carboard or an old pillowcase

Mixing Bowl
Mixing spoon/spatula
Scissors
Rolling pin, or a jar or bottle to use as such

Optional, but helpful items to have on hand are:

Hole punch
Stapler
Hot glue gun
Food coloring

Building Hope – The HYPE: Expressive Life Drawing @ Old Masonic Hall
Feb 18 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Building Hope - The HYPE: Expressive Life Drawing @ Old Masonic Hall

Building Hope in collaboration with BreckCreate, learn about life drawing. While we will be drawing from life, our focus will not be on realistic replication, but on expressive mark making through gestural drawing and doodling. We’ll explore different types of drawing tools and techniques, how our emotions and thoughts come through our mark making, and we’ll do number of exercises to loosen up and allow our creative spirits to express freely. Expect some silly drawings and laughter and be ready to open your perception of what makes a drawing “good.” This class is fit for any level of artist, though for this class, it may be the beginners who will produce the sillier or “better” drawings in the group.

About the instructor: Kia Neill is native to Chicago Illinois, received her MFA from The University of California, San Diego, and relocated to Denver CO in 2014 from Houston Texas, where she was Full-time Faculty of 7 years at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Glassell School of Art. After repeat visits as a Guest Artist in the Breckenridge Arts District (now Breck Create), Neill moved to Colorado to explore her deep attraction to the mountain landscape.

This event is limited to 9 participants Ages 12-20. Presented Free of Charge by our Generous Sponsors for Summit County Residents Only.

Building Hope – The HYPE: Soft Sculpture @ Old Masonic Hall
Mar 18 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Building Hope - The HYPE: Soft Sculpture @ Old Masonic Hall

Building Hope, in collaboration with BreckCreate, learn about soft sculpture.  Not all sculpture consists of the bronze statues you see in town, or the other stone, metal, or ceramic artworks we most often see in public spaces. Artists make sculpture from all kinds of material, even food! In this class we’ll focus on fiber and use fabric and yarn as our main sculpture material. We’ll go over some sewing and assembling strategies, embellishment, and experiment with how a flat pattern changes when transformed into a dimensional creature. Patterns for different creatures will be provided for students to use or alter..
