Class Descriptions

Mixed Media 1 (ages 7-9)
This course will explore multiple forms of art making such as painting, sculpture modeling, collaging, several uses of fiber, and others.

Mixed Media 2 (ages 10-18)
One's artistic ability and self-worth in Christ often fight the same battles. We fall into cycles of comparison that lead us to judge ourselves, become deaf to encouraging words, and believe God's promises might not apply to us. Through artful worship our prayer is that each participant is empowered to study and hear the Word of God for themselves and express their uniqueness with various art mediums. Each week will build on the previous week’s class. We will spend some time in brush lettering, ink washes, watercolors, watercolor pencils, acrylics, collage, textures and finally combining all to create mixed media projects.

Hand Stitching 1 (ages 7+)
This class puts a modern spin on the basics of hand stitching. Kids ages 7 and up will learn a variety of hand stitching skills, including a running stitch, back stitch, whip stitch, crochet, and hopefully many more. They will learn how to make classic gifts for friends and family or explore how to layer their new skills into a bohemian style work of art. As the girls are discipled using the model of Lydia from scripture, we will work together to create pieces that they can choose to sell at the next clement arts adoption fundraiser to show them that even at their age they are more than able to create beautiful things as a blessing to themselves and others.

Hand Stitching 2 (ages 7+)
In order to participate in this class you must have completed Hand Stitching 1 through Clement Kids, as these classes build on each other. In this class we will refine and enhance the techniques begun in HS1. We will learn additional stitches and create more intricate projects. This class will be adjusted as the students progress to include new hand sewing skills based on students interests and abilities.

Photography & Graphic Design (ages 13-18)
Has taking photographs become a new hobby? Have you noticed how impactful the media has become to our world? Are you interested in seeing how the gospel relates to this? Then Image-Bearers will be a great start in your photographic pursuits. This class will include a balance of taking and interpreting photographs through prompts and challenges as well as working with photoshop to enhance how images are understood. Students will need to have access to a digital camera (smartphones are sufficient) as well as a laptop with photoshop to bring to class. Students who are enrolled in a public Muscogee County school should be able to access photoshop upon enrollment in this class (more details forthcoming).

Ceramics & Pottery (age 8-18)
Through this class, students will be given an introduction to working with clay as an artistic medium. Each weekly project will focus on a new skill and method of working with clay, including but not limited to coiling, slab building, hand forming, etc. Pieces made in class will be both bisque fired and glaze fired. This will allow each student to see his/her work begin as raw clay and culminate as finished, high-fired stoneware clay.

Lettering & Sketchnotes (ages 13-18)
This class is an introduction to visual notetaking for Sunday mornings and private devotions. Visual notetaking increases your engagement with and retention of the sermon, and makes you more likely to revisit your notes. We will start by learning the basics of Sermon Sketchnotes including: color, layout, doodling, text hierarchy and letter. Then we will unlock artful devotion (also known as Bible Journaling). We will cover how to study the Word for yourself to draw out life application, ways to share the Word with others all the while creating fun illustrations.

    Amanda Newman – Stitching Instructor

    Amanda Newman is a wife and mother of two children who are her biggest supporters and motivators. From an early age, she was an eager student of all the arts. She has been blessed to be surrounded by women with a variety of hand stitching skills, passed down to them through generations. She’s very excited to share these and other techniques she has learned with the next generation of eager students. As Amanda has grown up, those little early investments have grown into a life calling to mission work in Rwanda Africa where she gets to teach the women there skills to create products that she brings home to sell for them. It has grown into a business called COPO that sells their products all over the United States. Amanda sees the Lord answer in her own life over and over her prayer from Psalm 90:17 “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us– yes, establish the work of our hands.” She cannot wait to see what the Lord does with the work of those little hands she is trusted with.
