Workshop For Children!

Yes, indeed.  

I am going to teach a six-session workshop for children.

I'll be teaming up with the Clark Planetarium under the umbrella of Art Access, an organization in Salt Lake City that provides equal opportunities to inclusive arts programming for Utahns with disabilities and those with limited access to the arts. It's part of their program called "Kindred Spirits."

Kindred Spirits Workshop
Designed for children whose chronological and/or cognitive age is 5 to 13, the Kindred Spirits program offers young participants an opportunity to engage creatively in a variety of visual arts projects in an inclusive environment. By integrating children with and without disabilities, Kindred Spirits works to eliminate barriers, empower participants and foster growth.

A Workshop That Appeals to Astronomy Enthusiasts!
Painting Nebulae with Susan Jarvis
Wednesdays, February 5-March 12 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.

Design and paint your own nebulae using a variety of mediums. Participants, under the instruction of the Clark Planetarium education staff, will explore nebulae – interstellar clouds of dust and gas. Students will create compositions of their own star-forming regions. Under the instruction of the teaching artist, participants will design their own nebulae and paint them.

Artwork created in these Kindred Spirits workshops will be exhibited at The Clark Planetarium in honor of the Planetarium's 10th Anniversary at their location in The Gateway. The exhibit will open on April 4, 2013 and will also contain juried artwork from other youth in the community.
