Making Your Mark Alexandra Guynn ’12 and Avery McNiff ’12
This workshop will meet 3:30-5:30 Mondays and Wednesdays, it is recommended for 3rd-6th grade children.

Prints have been an important medium in social and political events in various countries and cultures. Each week we will experiment with a new method of printmaking using mainly paper and paint. These methods include techniques derived from woodblock printing, found object printmaking, stamp and stencil making, and even fingerprinting.

Sports Study Casey Watters ’15 and Emma Erwin ’15
This workshop will meet 3:30-5:30 Mondays and Wednesdays, it is recommended for 3rd-6th grade children.

In this workshop, we plan on integrating the cultural, historical, and scientific aspects of sport in correlation with hands on activities. Each session we will focus on these topics in relation to at least one sport; such as soccer, tennis or gymnastics. To further the experience, we will bring in real college athletes to share personal stories and demonstrations.
