9:00 AM - 12:00 PM    Engineering For Kids Summer Camps - Aerospace Engineering Jr.
Aerospace Engineering Jr. Ages 5-8: June 21-25 from 9am-12pm Aerospace engineering is one of the newest disciplines of engineering, facilitated by the growth of the aviation industry in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Aerospace engineers are responsible for the design of aircraft and the subsequent assembly or construction process. Aerospace engineering can also be further broken down into two separate branches: aeronautical engineering, which deals with the design of near-atmosphere aircraft, and astronautical engineering, which involves exo-atmosphere spacecraft. Super Hero's Week Ages 8-14 : June 21-25 from 9am-12pmIt’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s...Heroes Week! Students will join other engineers their age as they seek ways to protect the world and save mankind in the process. Students will join a league of heroes and will compete against other leagues by performing engineering-related challenges, such as saving an ecosystem from a potentially lethal oil spill. Only one group will end the week as the ultimate league of super heroes!  During Heroes Week, students will explore the fields of environmental engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering as they design and construct tools that will help them protect the world, as all good superheroes do.Sail the Seas   Ages 8-14: June 21-25 from 12:30pm- 3:30pmBeing a pirate involves more than just swabbing the deck and searching for buried treasure. Our Engineering For Kids pirates have to engineer ways to build their ship, load it up and sail around the world. Sometimes, buried treasure isn’t found on an island but in a dark cavern far below the ocean’s surface. In this camp, students explore industrial and marine engineering as they design their own boat and sails and devise ways to dive deep into the ocean to retrieve buried treasure. Medieval Defense Jr. Ages 5-8: July 26-30 from 9am-12pmIn this camp, students build their very own castle and then work to defend it by engineering canons and catapults. Become a knight and join us on the question for glory and justice!. Students will select a shape for their coat of arms and cut it out. At the end of each class, students will draw a picture of the design they created building on their coat of arms each day. At the end of camp, students will have a completed coat of arms to take home that shows off all of the challenges they’ve overcome.Inventor's Workshop Jr. Ages 5-8: July 26-30 from 12:30pm- 3:30pmOver the course of a week, students will invent new machines and explore creative design solutions using the Engineering Design Process. Discover how a wind-up toy works and design your own drawing robot inside the Engineering For Kids Inventor’s Workshop.  MinecraftEDU: Traveling into the Future Ages 8-14: July 26-30 from 9am-12pmStudents will learn how to use teamwork and manage resources like an engineer in the real world. Building in Minecraft allows students to experiment with designs and materials, all without the risks associated with building.Hardware Engineering: Get Wired with Makey Makey Ages 8-14: July 26-30 from 12:30pm-3:30pmIn our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment. Please Note:  If you sign-up your child/children for the morning session (9am-12pm) and the afternoon session (12:30-3:30pm) there will be adult supervision during the 1/2 lunch break between programs.  Parents will be asked to send each child with a bag lunch each day which they will enjoy outside.

Focus on style or technique pursuing your area of interest. Can’t think of which direction to go-brainstorm with us!Lunch Bunch Teens: Workshops will be held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12:30-3:30pm. These classes are held indoors and outdoors weather permitting, bring a lunch, drink and snacks as needed, big art T-shirt recommended for protection from messy projectsNOTE: Bring a list of portfolio requirements if you are headed to art school/college, or working on a merit badge.LUNCH BUNCH Workshop Topics.  (T/W/TH- 12:30-3:30pm)QuillingCeramicsPainting (acrylics & water colors)DrawingOil Painting (water mixable)JewelrymakingEnamelingPrintmakingPet Portraits in colored pencil (guest artist)Fiber ArtsPaper Arts (including papermaking)Ceramics* Workshop There hasn’t been much time in the art room this year, but maybe you would like to make a vase, lifelike head, a sculpture of you dancing, mother holding a child, try a decorative bowl or serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.

So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.

Can’t think of which direction to go-brainstorm with us!Lunch Bunch Teens: Workshops will be held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12:30-3:30pm. These classes are held indoors and outdoors weather permitting, bring a lunch, drink and snacks as needed, big art T-shirt recommended for protection from messy projectsNOTE: Bring a list of portfolio requirements if you are headed to art school/college, or working on a merit badge.LUNCH BUNCH Workshop Topics.  (T/W/TH- 12:30-3:30pm)QuillingCeramicsPainting (acrylics & water colors)DrawingOil Painting (water mixable)JewelrymakingEnamelingPrintmakingPet Portraits in colored pencil (guest artist)Fiber ArtsPaper Arts (including papermaking)Ceramics* Workshop There hasn’t been much time in the art room this year, but maybe you would like to make a vase, lifelike head, a sculpture of you dancing, mother holding a child, try a decorative bowl or serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.

Come be inspired by others and the studio atmosphere. Enjoy one or all of these three day summer workshops this summer. Use your skills to build on, request guidance from experienced artists and come up with artwork to springboard into the next level of quality. Show work in the gallery if you are ready to share. Focus on style or technique pursuing your area of interest. Can’t think of which direction to go-brainstorm with us!Lunch Bunch Teens: Workshops will be held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12:30-3:30pm. These classes are held indoors and outdoors weather permitting, bring a lunch, drink and snacks as needed, big art T-shirt recommended for protection from messy projectsNOTE: Bring a list of portfolio requirements if you are headed to art school/college, or working on a merit badge.LUNCH BUNCH Workshop Topics.  (T/W/TH- 12:30-3:30pm)QuillingCeramicsPainting (acrylics & water colors)DrawingOil Painting (water mixable)JewelrymakingEnamelingPrintmakingPet Portraits in colored pencil (guest artist)Fiber ArtsPaper Arts (including papermaking)Ceramics* Workshop There hasn’t been much time in the art room this year, but maybe you would like to make a vase, lifelike head, a sculpture of you dancing, mother holding a child, try a decorative bowl or serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.

Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.

Focus on style or technique pursuing your area of interest. Can’t think of which direction to go-brainstorm with us!Lunch Bunch Teens: Workshops will be held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12:30-3:30pm. These classes are held indoors and outdoors weather permitting, bring a lunch, drink and snacks as needed, big art T-shirt recommended for protection from messy projectsNOTE: Bring a list of portfolio requirements if you are headed to art school/college, or working on a merit badge.LUNCH BUNCH Workshop Topics.  (T/W/TH- 12:30-3:30pm)QuillingCeramicsPainting (acrylics & water colors)DrawingOil Painting (water mixable)JewelrymakingEnamelingPrintmakingPet Portraits in colored pencil (guest artist)Fiber ArtsPaper Arts (including papermaking)Ceramics* Workshop There hasn’t been much time in the art room this year, but maybe you would like to make a vase, lifelike head, a sculpture of you dancing, mother holding a child, try a decorative bowl or serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display.

Can’t think of which direction to go-brainstorm with us!Lunch Bunch Teens: Workshops will be held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12:30-3:30pm. These classes are held indoors and outdoors weather permitting, bring a lunch, drink and snacks as needed, big art T-shirt recommended for protection from messy projectsNOTE: Bring a list of portfolio requirements if you are headed to art school/college, or working on a merit badge.LUNCH BUNCH Workshop Topics.  (T/W/TH- 12:30-3:30pm)QuillingCeramicsPainting (acrylics & water colors)DrawingOil Painting (water mixable)JewelrymakingEnamelingPrintmakingPet Portraits in colored pencil (guest artist)Fiber ArtsPaper Arts (including papermaking)Ceramics* Workshop There hasn’t been much time in the art room this year, but maybe you would like to make a vase, lifelike head, a sculpture of you dancing, mother holding a child, try a decorative bowl or serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics. The glaze is the satisfying finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design a solution to an organizational problem in your room. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your favorite culture. Ceramics* are clay pieces fired to a hard durable "bisque" then "glazed" with a powdered glass paint which is fired again to create a hard, slick, waterproof, brilliant colored surface.(please allow 2 weeks for the drying time, firing, glazing, re-firing processes)Painting Workshop (acrylics & watercolors) Compare different types of watercolor paints on different surfaces, experiment with innovative styles, share your own techniques and explore your preference for abstract vs realistic subjects. Work on color mixing, layering, combining watercolor pencil and wet methods, drybrush, ink over for final details. Try pen aire working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Drawing WorkshopLove to draw with graphite, charcoal, colored pencil or pastels? Let’s experiment with all of these looking at faces, figures, animals and still life this summer. Work in a studio setting, surrounded by emerging artists’ work. We will all be at different levels of experience so be prepared to learn and be inspired by others. If you have a sketchbook bring it with you and remember why you love to draw! Oil painting (water mixable) Oil painting was a favorite of the masters and still is widely used, but the materials have evolved.  Some are even cleanable with soap and water now. Oil paints last a long time and are not as affected by light as other paints. Experiment here and decide which paints are for you, before you invest in a whole set. Definitely wear a paint shirt or smock- this paint is permanent!Jewelrymaking WorkshopJewelry is one of the oldest artforms and is worth a trip to a museum to see how the ancient cultures made theirs! Join us for this relaxing and focused project- designing wearable art. We will explore basic beginner necklace, pendant, earrings, and bracelets using the wide variety of materials available today. You will learn how to use tools to make a metal wire spiral, loop, clamp and crimp. The more confident you become the better your designs will become and reflect your personal style. The colors, textures and choices keep you coming back to make more!Enameling WorkshopEnameling is done by fusing glass powder or pieces to something metal, the art is in the design, colors and various techniques. We will use copper and powders along with bits of spun glass and fuse it together in a small kiln. After it cools, students will polish the copper piece to give it a finished look. Students will have time to make several final pieces. Come try this ancient art form still used today.Printmaking WorkshopWhy make just one picture when you can make many? Design a T-Shirt logo, card series, special prints for your friends and family. Learn how to silk screen, dry point, make several unique monoprints. I met an artist who made live fish prints and then set the fish free! Maybe you will find something that inspires you to make more than just one of something. I learned printmaking in high school and started my own business making team shirts!Fiber Arts WorkshopThere are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest-clothing designs, stuffed friend, embroidery, relief art, mixed media critters, you name it we can figure out a way to make it out of fibers (strings, cloth, floss, foam, lace, ribbons). Re purpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric, come with an idea or we will find what inspires you!Paper Arts (including papermaking)Quilling WorkshopThis historic art form has made a resurgence with beautiful colors and contemporary themes. It is defined as a paper filigree that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create decorative designs or images. Not unlike the zentangle drawings, you will find yourself quietly immersed in the patterns, colors and small motor work used in this paper craft, losing all sense of time and worry, replaced by purpose and focus-very relaxing!SAT. Teen Workshop Series Macrame Workshop (guest artist) (4 sats. in July)Macramé, uses the art of knotting rope, to create wall hangings and plant hangers. It was big in the 1970’s when organic living was becoming the trend. You will learn several basic knots, choose from several examples and get faster each day as you master the skills. Plant hangers can be dip dyed to show a color gradient, beads can be added into the knot tying process. Find a beautiful branch/stick to hang your wall hanging from as part of the display. Cotton and hemp rope materials used.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at: 1475 Conestoga Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425.
