Everything Reptiles and Amphibians

In this unique interdisciplinary class learn a wide range of studio arts techniques and the science of reptiles and amphibians. Build and construct turtles in clay using hand building strategies, make camouflage paintings applying color theory and design principles, experiment with snake-like textures to make prints! Each day is an adventure!

Materials: clay, clay tool or reusable spoon/fork, thick paper, paint (primary color), paint brushes, cups for water and tray for mixing paint, recycled foam from the deli

Classes will be held virtually using Zoom and Google Classroom depending on the teacher’s preference. Some classes will include 1 or 2 field trips to local Concord-area conservation land, where students will practice the skills they learn virtually. During these field trips, everyone will be required to wear a mask and appropriately social distance. Any questions about social distancing protocol can send inquiries to Caroline Provost at caroline@theumbrellaarts.org.
