Department of Tactile Arts
- Collage Art Technique
- Clay Animation
- 3-D Arts
- Beginning Fused Glass Art
Collage artwork is made from an assemblage of different materials, thus creating a whole new image. Students explore and learn how to combine poetry, paint, pastels, paper and paste to create new art. Visual creativity and written expression are encouraged for fun and freeing experience. Ceramics courses offer students the opportunity to personally connect to artwork through a hands-on, sensory experience as they watch their creative ideas literally take shape. Students also enjoy learning to share their artistic work and visions with others through representation at collaborative art fairs and exhibits. Clay animation projects are shared CAA’s television productions and film festivals.
