explore materials and design techniques with a super cool focus on female artists

for 4th-6th grades

We’ve taken 2022’s Fab Lab and *totally* leveled up. For 2023, we focus on truly fantastic female designers from a range of backgrounds, time periods, and media choices. With each project, CJ’s own fantastic young makers model their own designs on a specific artist’s creation. Materials and techniques include collage, assemblage, textiles and simple sculptures.

Highlighted artists include Yayoi Kusama, Betye Saar, Ruth Asawa, Louise Nevelson, Katrina Sanchez, Frida Kahlo and Annie Albers.

We are soooo excited for these projects (omg!) – Mini Mirrored Rooms, Monochromatic Collages, Assemblage Dream Scapes, Yarn Urchins, Wire Sculptures, Reflective Portraits and … to weave it all together, Mixed-Media Wall Hangings.
