So much in our homes are made of ceramics.*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)Ceramics* Workshop - Glaze (June 28-June 30, 12:30PM-3:30PM)The glaze is the satisfying colorful finishing touch.

Try pen air working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Jewelrymaking Workshop (July 19-July 21, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Jewelry is one of the oldest art forms 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.

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 TeensWorkshops 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 are working on a merit badge.Workshop TopicsEnamelingCeramics (separate Bisque and Glaze weeks)DrawingPainting JewelrymakingSculptureVision BoardingPrintmakingFiber ArtsEnameling Workshop (June 14-June 16, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Enameling 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.Ceramics* Workshop - Bisque (June 21-June 23, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Time to get creative with clay: maybe you would like to make a vase, a lifelike head, a sculpture of a dance, a mother holing a child, a decorative bowl, or a serving plate. So much in our homes are made of ceramics.*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)Ceramics* Workshop - Glaze (June 28-June 30, 12:30PM-3:30PM)The glaze is the satisfying colorful finishing touch. Use your humor to create a special piece or design an intricate pattern. Maybe you love candles and you want a stand that is unique to your style, a mask from a favorite culture, a sushi plate or you make jewelry and paint coordinated medallions and beads. *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)Drawing Workshop (July 5-July 7, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Love 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! Painting Workshop (July 12-July 14, August 9-August 11, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Compare different types of paints (acrylic, oil, watercolor, gouache) 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 air working outside on a landscape or springhouse study.Jewelrymaking Workshop (July 19-July 21, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Jewelry is one of the oldest art forms 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!Sculpture Workshop (July 26-July 28, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Sculpture is creating 3-Dimensional artwork, large or small, soft or hard, abstract or representational. Remember the joy of handling play-doh, building a snow person, and turning a box into a fort? Students will use a variety of materials (wood, clay, wire, paper, plastic, etc.) to create several sculptures. They will have fun learning techniques of sculpture, developing textures and shadows, terms, tools and styles. If you like to build things, come sculpt with us. Rain or shine - we will work outside on beautiful days!Vision Boarding Workshop (August 2-August 4, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Thinking about your upcoming school year yet? What do you envision a great year will look like? Start a plan with us. Hope, think, imagine, and leave with a beautiful mixed-media piece illustrating what you plan for this exciting new school year. Stephanie will guide you through the reflective process: gathering ideas, narrowing down your unique key elements to include and how to represent them visually. Time permitting, additional paper art activities will be introduced.Printmaking Workshop (August 16-August 18, 12:30PM-3:30PM)Why 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 Workshop (August 23-August 25, 12:30PM-3:30PM)There are so many art forms under this umbrella! Which direction you go will depend on your interest: clothing design, 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). Repurpose a pair of jeans, weave a wall hanging from yarn, ribbon and fabric...come with an idea, or we will find what inspires you!Students have the option to add Monday and Friday for $60 to any week EXCEPT the week of July 4 - students can add just Friday for $30 that week.The Chrysalis Art Center is located at 1475 Conestoga Road, Chester Springs, PA 19425.

We will paint indoors in our studio and outdoors "plen aire." General materials are provided; students may bring specialty materials as desired.Beginners Pottery for Stress Relief and Relaxation with Stephanie Pirozzi (Saturdays, 4:30-6:30pm) ages 13+Experience the restorative power of clay in this course designed to enhance well-being while learning basic pottery techniques that will serve as the foundation for your pottery practice.
