Session 1 – June 30 – July 11
Hometown Architecture – Become a tourist in your hometown. You’ll tour Pittsburgh with a digital SLR camera, experiencing the wonderful architecture that the region has to offer. Students will also experience photo manipulation using Adobe Photoshop. Trips include local downtown buildings as well as regional marvels like Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.

Session 2 – July 14 – 25
Into the Fire – In this session we’ll focus on making work to fire in the soda kiln. In this process, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is sprayed into the kiln shortly before the firing is finished, glazing the work while it fires. Functional and sculptural pieces both look great using this process. Come and try out a new type of firing!

Session 3 – July 28 – August 8
Fresh Fashions – Screenprint, sew, and modify your own unique clothing. This summer we’ll help you make your fashion dreams a reality in our design arts studio. Take advantage of our professional quality sewing machines, screen-printing equipment, dress-forms, and more. We’ll supply the materials and equipment—you bring the creative vision.
