M3: Light/Shadow

July 20, 2013 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Get your STEAM (science technology engineering art and math) on this summer with M3!

Light/Shadow: July 20, noon-3pm, with Kevin Clancy

In this session, students will explore methods of manipulating light and shadow, resulting in an ephemeral collaborative installation. Students will learn about artists who employ light as their primary media, ranging from James Turrell to Anthony McCall, and participate in hands on activities, including drawing with light on photosensitive materials, video projections, experiments in color theory, and bending and refracting light through physical mediums.

Materials, Media and Me (M3) is a series of Saturday afternoon workshops for children ages 8-10. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.

The M3 classes have expanded this year to include and highlight Natural Found Objects, Time + Place, Cardboard, Electricity, Body+Movement, Code, Sound, Wood, Light+Shadow, Man-made Found Objects, Food Chemistry + Perception, and Fiber.

Students will explore the properties of the materials with the instructors—How does it bend? How can you attach it to another material? What can I make with this?—before planning their own project. Sign up for one or more M3 classes today!
