 2020  Summer Youth Art Institute

Sarratt Youth Art Institute (SYAI) will tour the globe with our theme “A Wonderful World of Art”.  Each day of the week is a new opportunity to explore the art and cultures of the major continents and regions around the world. Grades K – 6  will use clay, metals, fibers, paint, photography, paper and other materials to create their own versions of art that are based on traditions and influences that have been passed down for years in these various countries and regions.

Grades 7 – 10 will have focused lessons on specific art mediums and we’ve listed the studio techniques below on our schedule. Techniques taught to grades 7 – 10: Pottery involves creating objects from clay on the potter’s wheel and by hand; Fused Glass is the process of cutting and designing pieces of glass and then fusing to to a base layer of glass qhuc =h make tiles, small bowls, and jewelry; Jewelry techniques involve cutting, sawing, piercing, texturing sheets of copper as well as wire and bead techniques to create jewelry; Fiber Arts is a “catch all” category of weaving, quilting, knitting, paper making, books arts, printing techniques and more.
