Children's Happy Day

Hey Errybody

The kids are young preschool age, so each instructor (Lauren, Sheryl, Mia), will be partnered with an intern/new instructor who will shadow and assist as needed (Bretta, Melissa, Micah).

We will be studying portraiture, and we will be making Cubist portraits in the studio from pre-cut shapes. 

 Every instructor will also get a feltboard with felt shapes, to demonstrate how one can use different shapes to make a person. Have the kids pick out appropriate shapes for a head, hair, eyes, etc., and build a person together. Do this in a quiet gallery of your choice. 

The routes are as follows:

Lauren: Feltboard 1, 2, 3

Mia: 2, Feltboard, 3, 1

Sheryl: 1, 3, Feltboard, 2
