Teen Art Class at Crooked Line Studio
jun 14, 2021 at 11:00 aM
This class will be an exploration of visual storytelling techniques and elements inspired by the timeless story, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. After reading the book, we will meet on June 14th, 11am-1pm at Crooked Line Studio for a discussion and art activity. We will begin by discussing the themes, symbols, and ideas within this beloved story, as well as the technical ways in which the author communicates some (perhaps troubling) issues with adulthood and society at large. We will learn about satire and illustration techniques. After the discussion, we will dive into making our own collages!
We hope teens walk away with an appreciation for a new (but old) book and a piece of art that they are proud of. They will also gain a better understanding of the elements of satire, symbolism, and illustration.
Registration is required in order to receive a copy of the book and to attend the art class. Books will become available for pickup from the library June, 1. Register here https://docs.google.com/.../1FAIpQLSe047MK8.../viewform
