Discovery Classes for children 9-13

The Arkansas State University Museum will begin its Summer Discovery Class program on Monday, June 7. Classes will be offered in Native American Crafts, Ceramics, Photography and Printmaking for students 9 to 13 years of age. No previous experience is required.

Each class session will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until noon and includes all supplies. Class size is limited to 12 students and early registration is encouraged. The cost of each class is $80. There is a $15 discount for ASU Museum members and ASU faculty and staff.

The schedule for the coming summer is as follows:

June 7-11 Native American Crafts - a great way to learn about Native American culture while creating several craft projects that relate to objects in the museum collection. Crafts offered for the week include Kachina masks, gourd rattles and beading.

June 14-18 Ceramics - Students will work with clay to produce three-dimensional forms. Instruction will include working on the wheel as well as methods of coil and slab building. Ceramic pieces will be fired and painted or glazed.

June 21-25 Photography Students will learn the basics of photography as an art form. Classes will encourage students to explore ways to use light, texture, form and line to compose a photograph. Cameras will be provided for each student.

June 28-July 2 Printmaking Students will learn the basics of printmaking using both linoleum block and mono print methods. The class will teach students composition, line, form and texture.

Advanced registration with payment is required for each class. Telephone registration will not be accepted unless paid by credit card. Registration forms are available by email, fax or at the museum office. Cancellations may be made up to seven working days prior to class and the check will be returned. Fees are non-refundable five days before the first session of each class.
