For Immediate Release:
Middle school artists can sign up for UW-Green Bay Summer Studio
GREEN BAY-Enrollment is open now for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Middle School Summer Art Studio scheduled Monday through Friday, June 16-20 on the University campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr., Green Bay. Students eligible to attend are those who will enter grades six through nine in fall 2008.
Students can choose from a variety of art mediums. Two classes-Ceramics: Introduction to Wheel Throwing for Raku Firing and Introduction to Fine Art Digital Photography are all-day sessions, so students selecting those will concentrate on just one class for the week.
The remaining classes are half-day sessions, so students will choose two classes. Half-day classes include Wildlife Illustration, Cartooning and Comic Book Illustration, Introduction to Acrylic Painting, Fashion Design, Jewelry Making from Found and Collected Items, and Mosaic Making.
Early enrollment is encouraged to ensure course selection.
Summer Art Studio is co-directed by Carrie Fonder and Sandra Shackelford. A sculptor, Fonder is a candidate for a Master of Fine Arts Degree at Cranbrook Academy of Art and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. She has numerous exhibits and commissions to her credit, and has taught elementary art in Green Bay Area Public Schools. Shackelford is a documentary artist whose work is in collections throughout the U.S. She earned a degree from UW-Green Bay and studied at UW-Milwaukee. Shackelford works with K-12 students at Aldo Leopold School and creates art programs for youth through the Howe Neighborhood Family Resource Center, both in Green Bay.
Summer Studio classes are taught by artists and teachers from across Wisconsin.
Middle School Summer Art Studio is a day camp, with classes scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday classes end at 3 p.m. so that students can prepare for the final public exhibition of their work that closes the camp. Outstanding students will be chosen to receive scholarships to the 2009 Summer Studio.
Students and their parents are responsible for their own daily transportation to Summer Studio. Commuters may bring their lunches, purchase meal cards, or purchase snacks from vending machines. The camp fee of $259 covers instruction, materials and a camp tee shirt. Some classes requiring special materials also have a lab fee.
