About This Program
Bead Making of Indigenous People
Students will learn how to make beads (jewelry) from air-dry clay and review 2D and 3D shapes. How jewelry and adornment communicate our Identity, Virtues, and/or Cultural norms will be discussed. We will be manipulating air-dry clay to imitate tribal beads from indigenous people: African OR Native American Cultures. Students will learn art elements (lines, colors, shapes, patterns) and practice the magic of mixing colors!
Residencies range in price, from $2,500 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
