This class has been canceled.

All students registered for a class scheduled to meet during the closure will be notified and given the option to transfer to another class or receive a full refund.

Wham! Bam!  Enter the world of Superheroes and let the special exhibit Hall of Heroes inspire to you to create 2- and 3-dimensional works of art.  Projects will include creating a mask of disguise, X-ray vision drawings, as well as a zoetrope (a mechanical animator) to make heroes move and fly. Learn fun techniques to create robots with embossed metalwork. Students will be introduced to simple anatomy to make muscular and strong figures, as well as learn about perspective to draw imaginary cities for their heroes to watch over.  Lastly, students will design their own moveable wooden getaway cars based on the “Bat Mobile.” The session will end with a Superhero Showcase of Superpowers in fun competitions.

Bring a snack and a brown bag lunch. DRESS TO MAKE ART!
