At ArtReach we like to go deep and allow time to sink into our topics.  Each class is taught by a professional working in their field, who is passionate, creative and not afraid to lean into students' passion and go off-book. Thursdays and Fridays are geared toward ages 13 and older. Students can begin their day challenging their imagination (and math skills) with D and D, or learning to work with metal through creating their own armor. Or perhaps try rock climbing at CRG and then dive into printmaking Got siblings? For every two ten-week class you sign up for, take $50 off your tuition!

Learn the basics of clothing construction, weaving techniques, and the basics of pattern making to create a minimal waste, unique and beautiful garment using needle weaving. Together we will explore surface design by creative use of colors, textures, and non-traditional materials. We’ll deconstruct garments to understand their construction and make patterns to fit ourselves.  Then using our weaving techniques, we’ll construct a one of a kind garment.  We’ll end our five weeks with a mini fashion show to share our work. No prior experience with weaving or sewing needed!

​Sense of Self in the Age of Selfies

In this ten-week intro to metalwork course, students will learn techniques to create their own wearable armour. We will use the theme of protection to explore a variety of scientific and artistic techniques involving working with copper. Students will practice wielding a jeweler saw to cut out their own unique designs. We will then build an electro etching tank using battery power and salt to etch unique designs into copper. We will also be using methods of hole punching, stamping, riveting, and patinaing, all to enhance and form their special creations. Throughout this practice, we will have the opportunity for self-reflection, and exploring the power of intention. What does it take to feel protected and how can we embody that through our hands and into the pieces we are creating?
