High Museum of Art

Event Description

About Saturday Studios
Explore the High Museum’s galleries, learn from professional artists, and make art in our monthly studio classes! Designed for first through eighth grades, Saturday Studios teach young artists to investigate art in the galleries, develop their own creative practice, and create artworks in alignment with class themes. Artists may attend a standalone session or build on their knowledge in a particular area by attending each of the five sessions (January through May). All supplies are provided, and artists are welcome to bring their own snacks and water. Pre-registration is required.
The High Museum of Art reserves the right to cancel or alter any program due to attendance.

Dates: Mark your calendar! Saturday Studios occur on the third Saturday of each month from January through May (January 18, February 15, March 21, April 18, May 16)

Grades 6–8
TEXTile Design

With the museum’s collection of textiles as a backdrop, young artists will take a step away from digital distractions and create sewing, weaving, and alternative textile projects that serve as a different form of communication. In this mixture of DIY, textile design, and home economics with a spin, participants will reflect on their design preferences, cultures, and personalities by creating mini quilts along with basic sewing instruction, making wall hangings, learning alternative cross-stitching, designing fabrics and wearable art, crocheting, and adding to a collective weaving project.

May 16
Hooked on Crochet: Crochet a circular mandala inspired by the exhibition speechless: different by design. A gallery-based prompt and tour will provide inspiration, and the meditative practice of crocheting in a mandala-like pattern will encourage relaxation.
