Youth Workshop: DIY Lava Lamp

Posted By: Berkeley Art Center (BAC)
A DIY Lava Lamp workshop will take place during our Northern California inspired exhibit,  I Look for Clues in your Dreams.  Come get your California groove on in this fun workshop! DIY Lava Lamp making serves as a hands-on learning opportunity for kids and also a creative exercise with recycled materials. Art Instructor Chelsea Smith received her BFA in Ceramics at University of the Arts London and has worked at art institutions in England, Sweden and the U.S. She is currently a studio assistant at Oakland's Creativity Explored and teaches at Golden Gate Children's Art and NIAD Arts Center.
Harnessing the Magic of Nature
6/19/2016 7:00:00 PM UTC - 6/19/2016 10:00:00 PM UTC
Posted By: Berkeley Art Center (BAC)
Learn to identify, gather, process and use a variety of natural materials suitable for making pigments to be used in watercolors, illustration, and mixed media works. This workshop will also present a number of techniques for collaborating with the elements and chance transformations introduced by various natural processes (e.g., allowing your work to be shaped by the wind or flowing water, charred with fire or faded by the sun, and texturized by rusting, being buried in earth, or encrusted with crystals).  All of the techniques are environmentally friendly, non-toxic and many of the materials are locally available and free! For adults only and individuals with some experience creating 2D artwork. Please wear suitable clothing to work outside, including sturdy shoes – we will be spending the afternoon in the beautiful park surrounding the Art Center. $30 for BAC members / $40 for non-members
 All materials provided.
