What is the Theme? 
Medieval Magical Castles

For this session Sparklers will imagine they are Lords, Knights, Queens, and Kings ruling over a kingdom. Each week we will learn about medieval times and use different techniques in art to create our projects.

Week 1 & 2 
Slab-Rolled Castle Towers
Sparklers will begin this class by learning the different components of a medieval castle. What helped fortify castles to make them safe? Were they made of stone, wood, or brick? Were animals used around castles to fend off attacks? What other key parts of a castle can they create? A moat? Battlements? Drawbridge? They will then learn slab building techniques and work to sculpt and paint their towers.

Week 3 & 4
People and Creature Puppets
Who lives in magical castle tower? Knights? Kings and Queens? Dragons? Unicorns? Dogs and Cats? (Dogs and cats were kept in castles to reduce the number of rodents!)  Sparklers will draw and design 1 or 2 puppets to create throughout the next two weeks of class. We will use a variety of yarn, felt, and fabrics to create our puppets and full medieval outfits.

Week 5 & 6 
Crowns and Shields
 Sparklers will design their very own crowns and shields using foil, paint, jewels, and a variety of different techniques. We will learn how to distress our shields with paint buffing techniques.  They will also draw and design a crest to go on their shield.

What is the cost? 
$144 for 6 weeks of class
