The 2019 Youth Art Workshop in La Veta, CO is for young people who have completed Kindergarten to those entering 6th grade.

Grades 1 – 3 — Ya Gotta have Art!

Come and join the fun as we spend a week exploring and creating art. This five day workshop is going to include two amazing projects. Students will work with clay on a Fossil and Container project. We will begin with some research looking at fossils and drawing before working in clay .The second project includes creating Japanese Paste paper, a process that uses wheat paste and paint along with various printing tools to make dynamic patterns and textures. The children will also be learning about symmetry, drawing and collage-the art of using a variety of papers and gluing them to a surface.This project allows the students to explore the insect world while choosing an image for their collages. Inspiration for this project comes form the artist and author Eric Carl.

Patti Paiz Jones will be the instructor for the 1st – 3rd grade children. She’ll be introducing the children to many media and techniques throughout the week. She received a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado in art education.She brings 36 years’ experience teaching art to grades 1 – 12. She also earned a masters’ degree in Integration of the Arts in the Curriculum. Since her retirement she has been able to focus on her passion–ceramic art, DBA Silver Mountain Pottery. Patti currently offers her work in La Veta at Crafted in Colorado as well as at Pueblo’s Steel City Art Gallery.

There will be a show of the children’s artwork at Noon Friday, July 12.
