    3D Printing for Educators
    Make the most out of your school’s new 3D printers! Learn the basics behind 3D printing in this fun and informative one-day workshop! Learn how to run and troubleshoot common issues with your printer, how to slice a file for printing, and even how to create your own designs for printing using software designed for grades 3 and up! 
    Curriculum and Fine Art: Delivering Quality Art to Kids While Checking the Boxes for School
    Requirements in systems may vary, but they are a constant. In this Teacher Workshop, we’ll explore ways of meeting curriculum requirements while still providing content of artistic and cultural substance!

    Figure Drawing: Underneath it All
    As an artist, just drawing the figure isn’t enough. Understanding what makes up the structure, the substance, of the form solidifies a good illustration. How does our underlying structure support a believable figure? What are the prominent anatomical markers in the human form? Where are the common mistakes, the assumptions we draw without really looking at the figure? This workshop will address these questions with a figure drawing studio session.

    Narrative Visual Storytelling
    Narrative visual storytelling (AKA comics or cartoons) can be a powerful tool for students to express complex emotions and ideas through dynamic characters, vast new worlds, and original stories. Additionally, this powerful communication tool uniquely shows a passage of time through a series of panels and combines imagery with text, making it an ideal storytelling medium. Plus, it’s something kids love already!

    June Workshops
    2D Processes
    You'll work alongside other educators to develop a small body of work and reinvigorate your teaching practice under close faculty guidance. Each 10-by-10-foot studio contains an easel, storage and table. Studio spaces can be customized with materials and furniture to fit your needs. In addition to our dramatic, light-filled painting and drawing studios, scheduled access hours to our printmaking studios allow for creating work through intaglio, lithography, screenprinting, and monoprinting techniques.

    Contemporary Craft
    Residents working in Contemporary Craft will create in spaces designed and equipped for our students preparing for professional craft practices. Our jewelry and metals studio offers traditional metal working equipment, as well as casting, enamel and 3D printing technologies. CIA’s ceramics studio is fully equipped with seven kilns, including two walk-in kilns, a computerized Blaauw kiln, glazing studio, clay making lab, and a 3D clay printer. Our two-story glass studios are equipped for glassblowing, fusion glass work (casting, slumping, and bending), flame-working, and cold-glass work (cutting, grinding, polishing and sandblasting).
