Welcome to the Rare Hare Studio

The Rare Hare Studio offers art classes to children ages preschool through 8th grade, introducing a wide variety of materials and techniques.Students are encouraged to explore supplies and tools freely, as well as to participate in guided lessons. Basic artistic elements such as line, shape, color, texture, form, space, and value, as well as design concepts, are discussed and practiced at appropriate grade levels. Study of these elements is further enhanced by an emphasis upon the use of patterns and rhythm in art. Taking note of patterns in the environment around us and how they can be interrelated is an integral part of this process.

We offer a truly unique mix of classes where participants can discover new things and yet build on what skills they may already have. Some students can draw very well, others may prefer to make sculpture or weave.  At Rare Hare Studio, many of our projects used mixed media, so participants are exposed to a wide range of materials and applications. We offer opportunities to develop existing skills, and introduce new skills in a comfortable, relaxed environment.  Starting on 2/1/14, the studio will be open every Saturday from 10am-2pm, as Art FORM’s Creative Re-Use Store will be open, offering a bounty of clean, re-useable scraps for school projects, crafters and artists and the community for low-cost.  Donations of materials will also be accepted and processed on Saturdays–bring by your scraps!

Class Visits to Build Ancient Civilizations

This class of 3rd-5th graders visits the studio to explore ancient civilizations.  We discovered that Rome was not built in a day.

This student loved the PVC scraps for columns.  This piece of Roman architecture also has a marble floor.

In a 2nd session, the same student wanted to show how the Romans invented the wheel.  Using scrap wood and odds and ends, this student problemed solved how to make the Roman cart actually move with turning wheels.

Project, pride and smile say it all.

ROBOTS!

Robots took over the studio, but that doesn’t mean we were on auto pilot…

First, we had to sort through a lot of donations for the best robot pieces

We noticed it takes quite a bit of problem solving as we use many random pieces and trying to make them fit and balance is a fun, creative challenge! We could see their wheels turning and their genius flowing.

This movie star robot has her own agent; that’s how serious we are about our robots.
