Spring Break Art Camp: Sculpture to Scale

Prairie Arts Center is excited to once again partner with the OSU Museum of Art for this year's Spring Break Camp. Camp will begin with a visit to the museum for an interactive tour of  BLOW UP II: Inflatable Contemporary Art, a whimsical exhibition that explores "the imaginative ways that air is used as a tool to create large-scale sculptures." Students will use these larger than life artworks for inspiration as they collaborate to create a large scale sculpture of their own. We will also visit some of downtown Stillwater's public sculpture, and have the chance to plan and draw out an imagined piece of public art. Finally, as a class, we will create a sculpture garden in miniature, creating works made from polymer clay, cardboard, wood, and more. 

Students should bring a packed lunch and snack and dress for the weather.

Instructor’s name

Art educator Jen Johnson holds an undergraduate degree in art history and English literature from the University of Kansas, as well as an MAT (Masters in the Art of Teaching) from the English Department at the University of Montana. In her own practice, Jen is equally invested in understanding the larger world through her interactions with the art objects of others and the making of her own art objects. Jen considers her greatest strengths as an educator to be the facilitation of reflective and critical conversations about art and art making, as well as the creation of safe environments for authentic explorations into the practices of self-expression and making. Her preferred mediums are mixed media, printmaking, and photography, but she enjoys the act of creation no matter the medium and considers it one of her greatest joys to make art alongside others.
