Sample Programs Offered

Program Title: WEBS

Program Type: Arts Curriculum

Program Description:

WEBS is a fine arts unit of study using the mediums of clay, paint, and textiles and incorporating the book The Spider Weaver by Margaret Musgrove. Each lesson begins with a movement exercise called the Brain dance, relating to spiders and their habits and habitats, and then separates into clay and painting stations, where the students use clay tools and paintbrushes. The students end up with a circular ceramic frame in which they have woven a web of different colors and textures, and a dance that they have created in collaboration with their group. This lesson provides the outline of the clay station.
