Art Specialty Track

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone

*Specialty tracks are three part sessions that really delve into a content area

In this track, you will learn how to make prints on fabric using a silk screen as a fun way of exploring creative self-expression.  We’ll start at the very beginning and learn how to transfer an image onto a silk screen, and then practice printing on t-shirt, pillow cases and other fabric items.  Through this track, you’ll see how to make modifications to the process all along the way that make silk screening accessible for budding artists of all ages and skills, and help to ensure that it is affordable for any summer camp art room budget.  Lastly, well investigate how creative self-expression can be great hands-on way to think about Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel’s ideas about what it takes to be a “text person” and a great teacher.
