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.
The studio was very busy this summer with full camps each week, thriving artists and projects galore! We are transistioning from our summer programs into our fall schedule of classes and events. In addition to Rare Hare’s acitivities we are also excited about progress with Art FORM (Found Objects Recycled Materials) a nonprofit, 501c3 which currently shares space with Rare Hare. Art FORM offers workshops for students and teachers in creative re-use, and hopes to relocate to another building nearby soon. Stay tuned as we post more classes and events this fall. We are also booking private events, such as birthday parties for children or adults or other special group events for the 2012-2013 season. We recommend booking your event far in advance to secure the date and time that’s best for you.
Day of the Dead Elvis, Hippie Elvis, and Fire Chief Elvis…all help to make this collection very unique. The Elvis Head were on display for the Adams Avenue Street Fair and public’s reation was fun to watch. More people recognized Lady Gaga then Ghandi, which was kind of funny.
Teaching away from the studio with ArtReach, Rare Hare has the opportunity of working with kids all over San Diego. On this day we were at Onienta School in Imperial Beach, helping students to make ArtReach’s signature project, The Dream Quilt using oil pastels.
The Dream Quilts are alive with so much energy and color!
This 6th grade student from Encinitas visits the studio on a fieldtrip. In this class we made mobiles from recycled materials.
Using recycled and reclaimed materials in our F.A.I.R. sculpture class, this 3rd grade student make a figure.
In this Jackson Pollock Jr. class, we explored melted crayon art. Mom assist her 4-year-old son with the crayons, but the design is all his. The beauty of Jackson Pollock Jr. is that kids can discover new types of media they would otherwise not get a chance to use; parents assist as needed, or just stay close by and watch. Besides experiencing new types of art, this class is special because the parent and child work collaboratively; a chance for the parent and child to share the process and just BE TOGETHER, spending time with one another.
This young lady is proud of her weaving. We used reclaimed yarn and wrapped it around sticks; something so simple, yet full of color and texture. It was fun to watch Mom and daugther dance around each other as they took turns wrapping the yarn around the stick. Jackson Pollock Jr. is for ages 3-6 and is held once a month.
