Now Hiring Art Teachers for 2018 Spring Break Art Camps

Design your camp, your way.

Art Professors, please pass this along to any upper-level students or recent graduates who you think would be good candidates.

Camp Dates are Monday – Friday, March 12-16, 2018

9:00-12:00 and/or 1:00-4:00*

Camps are 3 hours a day for 5 days, and allow students to dive into a specific topic or medium and explore it in some depth over the course of the week.

One camp should be for ages 5-8 and one for ages 9-12
You can opt to teach both camps for a solid 7-hour day (you'll get paid for 7 hours) or you can just pick one or the other.

If you can't do all 5 days, you can split the days between yourself and another teacher, but you need to work together on your plan for the week so it's a cohesive experience for the kids.   
You can also team-teach together at the same time if you're willing to split the pay.  

I will also be there every day to welcome the kids, get them checked in, do introductions, etc. and assist throughout the day as needed. 

ASSETS:

  • WE HAVE A PRINTING PRESS!!!!  This one, in fact.  It's a very nice piece of equipment, I'd ask that kids never use it unsupervised. You'll probably want to be the one setting it up and maybe just let them turn the wheel. 
  • We can have a screen printing frames March; we'll need them anyway for the adult course in screen printing we're starting in April.
  • 6 digital cameras with tripods.  These are simple point-and-shoot and suitable for kids to use.  We can get parents to sign waivers if you want to do a photography walk-about in
    the downtown/strand neighborhood. 
  • 10+ bags of raw wool and silk for felting projects (dyed various beautiful colors)
  • We have access to several kilns with nearby businesses/organizations that can do both bisque and glaze firings.  There is staff on-site to help with them, too.
  • Digital projector and projection screen
  • Drying racks, 8 easels, and 16 adjustable-angle drafting table tops
  • All the basic supplies for painting, drawing and sculpting

I hope that gives you some ideas!  If you have an idea that requires specific materials, let me know and I'll see if I can make it happen.

Please Include:
  1. Dates and times you want to teach
  2. Topic you want to teach 
  3. What, specifically, will students make?  How many can they expect to make?
  4. What's different about this camp that they wouldn't learn somewhere else in Galveston?
  5. Supplies, equipment needs
  6. Phone number where I can reach you
I will reply within two days and we can discuss teaching rates, materials to prepare, resources, brainstorm about details, etc.


Reply by JANUARY 15th to be considered!!!

Dreams in Color

Solo show featuring artworks by Gretchen McDaniel.

Gretchen was born in Houston, and raised along the Texas Gulf Coast. She moved to Detroit on a whim, and stayed there for eight years. Her discovery of Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party” and Diego Rivera’s “Detroit Industry Murals” showed her the power of art in making a statement. Back in Houston, she remarried and was taught quilting by her new mother-in-law. Being strongly attracted to the tactile feel and colors of fabric and threads, she now quilts and works with fabrics and fibers in other artworks. She has worked with others to put on art shows for over 15 years. She now has an art studio at Jomar Visions, and is focused on bringing about world peace through her own art.

"On Repeat" Curated by Raphael Rubinstein - Opening at Clarke & Associates

713-254-2998


JENNIFER BARTLETT/ HEATHER BAUSE/ CHRISTOPHER CASCIO/ CATHERINE COLANGELO/ CHERYL DONEGAN/ JACOB EL HANANI/ RACHEL HECKER/ GABRIEL DE LA MORA/ TAMEKA NORRIS/ JAMES RADCLIFFE/ DREW SHIFLETT/ JAMES SIENA MICHAEL TOSKOVICH/ CLAUDE VIALLAT/
Taking its title from a song by the band LCD Soundsystem, “On Repeat” brings together works by 14 artists who utilize, in incredibly diverse ways, strategies of patterning and repetition. Drawing on a range of influences and techniques, they turn to repeating motifs as a means to excavate and undermine the formal logic of their supports, while frequently incorporating the stuff of everyday life into their art. Turning away from the serial formalism of Minimalism, the artists here frequently embrace the imperfections of the handmade and the rhythmic properties of textiles. Materiality is crucial, as are echoes of 1970s movements such as Supports/Surfaces and Pattern & Decoration.

The exhibition is multi-generational, including well-established figures and emerging artists working in a range of mediums, including painting, drawing, assemblage and printmaking.Among its aims is acknowledging how younger contemporary artists, such as James Radcliffe and Heather Bause, situate their work in dialogue with the Supports/Surfaces group of the 1970s, represented here by veteran French artist Claude Viallat, one of the founders of the movement. Also recovered and reinvented is the Pattern & Decoration movement, which finds echoes in the extravagant patterning of Catherine Colangelo. Following the pioneering work of Jennifer Bartlett, the grid of modernist abstraction is taken apart and remade, often with unconventional materials and irreverent intent by Cheryl Donegan, Rachel Hecker, Gabriel de la Mora, Tameka Norris and Drew Shiflett. In the work of Jacob El Hanani and James Siena, rule-based methods and small-scale formats invite the viewer to an intense, meditative engagement. Chris Cascio and Michael Toskovich playfully twist the legacy of geometric abstract painting to their own ends.

Raphael Rubinstein is a poet and critic known for his influential writings on painting and his book of micro-narratives The Miraculous (Paper Monument, 2014). He is a contributing editor to Art in America magazine and a professor of Critical Studies at the University of Houston School of Art. His awards and honors include Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters from the French government and a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writer grant for his blog, The Silo.

International Program (October 9 to November 6, 2017) Puebla, Mexico


Special
2-in-1 International Program Includes Day of the Dead Arts Techniques
Instruction and Self-Directed Art Production. Why is the idea of Death
representing Mexico globally? This 4-week critical program addresses the
subject of Death as a national totem, by questioning its construction as a
macabre source of identity, exploring its relevance in the invention of Mexican
modern art and its secularization in popular culture. It explores the
performativity of rituals in Mexico and focusing on the mortuary celebrations
known as Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
