Creating Art Using Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire
From cave paintings to stone carvings, artists have been making their mark on the natural world for thousands of years. This summer, the natural world will make its mark on art. Using fossils, plants, wax, crystals, sand, mud, and more, participants will collaborate with artist Leah Wolff to explore the ways in which organic substances and natural objects can be updated and utilized as the raw materials for a complex and sophisticated series of artworks.

Under the Spell of Mysterious Forces
Magic, Illusion, and Performance-Based Art
What happens when a performer undergoes an intense emotional and physical transformation and becomes someone completely different than who they used to be? How is the act of creating an artwork similar to that of pulling off a difficult illusion or fooling an audience with a well-crafted magic trick? Artist Alan Calpe will take participants through the strange, mysterious, and sometimes disturbing world of performance-based art, with detours through the realms of photography, video, and other types of two-dimensional art.
July 8–August 14, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 2:00–5:00 p.m.
Babycastles Arcade—The Return!

Participants will work alongside this creative collective to explore the world of independent video games, merging the worlds of modern art and cutting-edge digital design to find new modes of interaction and interface, and collaborate with a community of likeminded peers to create a fully functional video game arcade.
Sculpture Boot Camp
An Intro to Making Everything…and More
