Project Based Learning Electives provided by the Berrien Springs Virtual Academy
Collage Spring 2019
Email and phone: email@example.com 269-782-8809
Location Address: 9480 COLUMBIA RD, DOWAGIAC, MI 49047 (1.5 Miles East of M-140 on Columbia Rd)
Classes begin January 17- March 7
Thursdays 10:00-12:00 PM
(Families or groups with 4 or more students may make arrangements with the instructor for alternative times and at home class sessions).
Description: Over the course of the semester, students will learn to create compelling, interesting and unique imagery using recycled print matter and other found materials, with styles ranging from the abstract to photorealistic.
Artists of any age and skill level can become proficient in the techniques involved, so collage-making is a great alternative for those aspiring artists who either aren’t proficient or interested in traditional painting and drawing. Yet it is also a good way for more experienced artists to expand their range of skills or get out of a rut.
In addition to the finished pieces, successful students will leave class with a mastery of the value scale, a keener eye for detail, and a fuller appreciation for a satisfying and effective artistic medium that is all too often overlooked.
A selection of the students’ work will be displayed at a local venue after classes have finished.
Classes meet Thursdays from 10:00-12:00 at the instructor's home studio outside of Eau Claire, from January 17 to March 7. Families or groups with 3 or more students may make arrangements with the instructor for alternative times and at home class sessions.
Instructor: Jon Whidden is a local artist, teacher and homeschooling parent of 3 boys.
*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
