A new series of integrative arts workshops for homeschooled children. Guided by teaching artists, participants will gain hands-on exposure to various art forms.

Music in Space in Time is led by local musician and teaching artist Mike Pagnani, who has taught music in Columbia County for over 10 years. Designed for alternatively-schooled children ages 8-12, Music in Space and Time explores music from theoretical and historical perspectives through participatory and hands-on activities both indoors and outside in The Fields Sculpture Park.

What can we do when one page isn’t enough for a work of art? How do we define book art and what possibilities does this creative process present? This class will focus on creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Students will have a chance to create one or multiple books using collected mementos such as ticket stubs, hand-written notes, scraps of wrapping paper or old photographs as well as original works on paper. They will be introduced to simple bookbinding techniques and different book forms. We will consider the importance of page sequence and how pairing certain works together can alter how we experience the individual pieces. Students will repurpose old drawings and collages and use text, images, and patterns from vintage magazines to create new artworks, poems, and stories. Students will see how a seemingly random collection of papers can come together to tell a personal story. There are no limits as to what students can create! Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to collect materials they would like to include.
