RMCAD will again partner with the Jefferson County Public School District to host a Professional Development Day for art educators. The event will take place at RMCAD on Wednesday, August 13, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Participants can earn Professional Development credits by engaging in workshops throughout the day.
Attendees can participate in three workshops. The following workshops have been confirmed:
Inspired by the popular TV show Project Runway, participants in the Paper Fashion workshop will create one-of-a-kind garments and accessories using simple construction techniques and recycled paper.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to create a simple Collagraph plate to make unique prints.
This workshop brings participants back to the basics. Attendees will explore the history of pinhole cameras and create their own to take home.
Raku firing is a process in which pottery is fired at a low temperature and then moved, while hot, to a closed container filled with combustible materials, such as paper and sawdust. In this workshop, participants will learn about Raku glazes and fire tiles in a Raku Kiln.
Inspired by graffiti and street art, participants in this workshop will learn a basic crochet technique and the history behind yarn bombing.
3D Chalk Art Perspective Showdown
Working with pastels, participants will learn the fundamentals of 3D perspective chalk art and compete in a perspective showdown. Participants will be grouped together in teams and judged by RMCAD Outreach.
Registration includes lunch, snacks, materials and facilitation by RMCAD faculty. The day will conclude with a frozen yogurt social.
Additional details will be announced in July.
