Compass Arts Mixed Media Art StudioMixed Media Art Studio for K-5th homeschoolers
Taught by Amanda E. Gross
Mondays, 1:00pm-2:30pm, April 1 - May 13
No class April 15

Each session, students will have fun exploring and creating in a different art medium. With a focus on natural and recycled materials, our experiments in mixed media will include printmaking, sculpture, textiles, natural dye, and more! First, we’ll investigate the art technique and creative process used by professional artists or a particular culture, along with the social context of the work. Students will interpret artworks, discuss how media is used to tell stories or makefunctional objects, and do warm-up art exercises. The majority of each session will be time for students to develop and express their own ideas through play and making art. At the end of each session, students will present their pieces to share. This class price is reduced by 30% from our regular pricing for a 90 minute art class specifically for the homeschooling community. For questions regarding curriculum, please email Amanda directly @ grossdraws@gmail.com.

Amanda E Gross is a Beacon, NY-based visual artist and educator. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a Master of Art Education from The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Amanda taught art in a variety of media - and English as a second language - outside Boston, worked at a children's museum in San Francisco, and designed instructional materials for adults. As an artist, Amanda creates paintings, drawings, and embroideries with a deep reverence for nature and playful irreverence for social mores, often with re-purposed wood, fabric, and tiles. Her artworks have been widely exhibited, including a January solo show at Beacon's Catalyst Gallery, and her illustrations and graphics have been featured in educational and commercial contexts. If not doing something art-related, Amanda is probably petting a cat, brewing kombucha, pad-drumming, or enjoying an awesome Hudson Valley hike or cultural offering with her ecological designer fiancé.
