Ten Down Nine by Josette Urso

While you’ve been home cleaning and organizing in self-isolation chances are you made that pile of “stuff.” Eventually you focused your energy and enthusiasm to your family and everyone was organizing their closets and bed rooms too.  Now you have the real challenge, what to do with baby’s first t-shirt, parts of favorite board games or toys, bits and parts of memory-rich jewelry. It’s time to let your TEEN turn it into treasure by reinventing the stuff they or you don’t want to part with.

Making ART from found objects is hot and on-trend in eco-sensitive home decor and from July 6 to 10 at the Morean Arts Center – between 9 am and 3 pm, campers will be transforming trash to treasure. These art projects will make gifts for teens to make for family members too.

The art instructors, staff and all ‘makers” in the class will be wearing masks and complying with social distancing protocols while working in the sanitized studio workspace assigned to each participant for the week.
Visit the Camp section of the Morean Arts Center now for complete details. We are complying with current guidelines and have very limited capacity remaining available.

Maybe you already found a new life and purpose for all of that stuff. Yet your TEEN is still yawning at the stretch of summer to follow the 4th of July.  You’ve got fun in the bag with a summer art camp that is all about paper. In a July 6 thru 10 week long exploration “Beyond the Page,” teen artist will learn to go vertical, quilling and mastering other techniques for this humble art form. Paper is a wonderfully accessible and affordable medium. Your TEEN will love the opportunity to create beautiful, powerful, or statement making art and skills developed in this class are timeless and transferable to other mediums too! Campers get their own socially distances studio work space for the week.

Staff and campers are making fashion statements with their masks and the class size is reduced in capacity. Register now as only a few studio work stations remain available. After this experience you and your teen will never look at a bag or newspaper or notecards in the same way and the rest of the summer can be filled with easy and fun projects to be made at home.
