Summer Art workshops for teachers Texas

PCT will be offering their annual art and theatre workshops this summer,adding film making to the roster of classes this year,giving students the opportunity and ‘know how’ to create their own short film.

Additionally,there will be workshops in painting,acting,costume creation,print making and even a paper mache class.

Acrylic Painting will be the first of the workshops offered beginning on June 23-27 from 10-11 a.m. Teacher Katherine Burns will teach the craft of painting with acrylic paint to students ages 8 and up. Each student will be replicating Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” on 11×14 inch canvas. The cost of this five day workshop is $50,with a $10 art fee for supplies.

The Printmaking workshop will also be held on June 23-27 — immediately following the painting class — from 11 a.m. to noon. Katherine Burns will also teach this workshop,which is the same price as the aforementioned class and for students ages 8 and up. The class will incorporate traditional drawing skills with projects that involve printmaking,which could be as simple as painting a potato and pressing it to paper,or as complex as carving into a piece of linoleum or foam to make your image.

Film Making classes will be taught by Chase Ramsey and Cody Head on July 7-11 from 1-3 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of the movie making process — script writing,directing actors and producing and editing film. This class is for 6th grade and up. Tuition is $100,which includes all software and equipment.

PCT’s Trunk Theatre workshop is back again this year on July 14-18 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Designed for the younger age group of 5-8 years old,Trunk Theatre is where pretend play becomes real,as students will learn to create a costume,become a character and act out a story. The teachers of this class are Laura Hutchings and Victoria Rhodes. The tuition fee is $50.

Also new to this year’s summer workshops is a Paper Mache class that will begin with some paper,water and glue and end with each student creating their own hanging,3-D,paper mache fish.

In case anyone is wondering,paper mache (or papier-mâché,which is French and literally means chewed paper) involves the process of mixing paper — often times newspaper — with water,glue and other substances,which will make a material that hardens as it dries. Before the mixture dries hard,it is applied to a formed shape — usually made with wire or other shaping material. The resulting dried mixture becomes a very hard,rigid object that will hold the shape it’s been applied to. It can then be painted and displayed.

Really,what kid would not have a blast mixing up a bunch of paper,glue and water to make a fish they could hang in their room? The answer to that question can be found out at the paper mache workshop on July 21-25 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Ashley Pickering will be teaching this paper craft class,which is for kids 7-12 years old. The fee is $50.
