Class Information

Many students just begin a fun project like weaving or stitchery in their regular art class or mini and it is soon time to stop, put away materials and go to another activity or class. In this one week summer school fiber art experience, children will be able to have plenty of time to explore, experiment and use their imagination in designing and creating art they can enjoy, wear or even use on a daily basis!

This fiber art experience will have a multicultural emphasis as we will learn the origins of many weaving designs as well as distinctive art techniques from many other cultures. Besides weaving, students will learn stitchery, puppetry, fabric stamping, paper making, macrame’ and many other skills involving many different types of fibers. Come with a creative and open mind dressed in appropriate “art-making” clothing as we will get messy at times!

Students may take just one week of Art Marks or may enroll in two or three weeks!

NOTE: All students should bring a bag lunch each day. SPA is a nut-safe campus so do not bring lunches that include nuts.

Teacher: Patty Paulus, a recently retired SPA Lower School Art Teacher, returns to develop and teach this new art program called ART MARKS for younger students in this relaxed day-long summer school art opportunity. After teaching art from 1998-2016 at the SPA Lower School and previously teaching K-6 in the Anoka Hennepin School District for 11 years, Patty aka Mrs. Paulus loves teaching this age group and looks forward to sharing her extensive art education background and knowledge with her students. She is a practicing artist and paints in her private art studio in the Dow Building located on University Avenue and Hampden in St.Paul. Patty also has her paintings exhibited with a variety of other local artists in The Dow Art Gallery which is open to the public during regular gallery hours. Her website is www.pattypaulus.com and if you click on “In the Gallery” you can view her narrated videos to see and learn about her paintings and the stories behind them.
