The UT Department of Art will offer two summer workshops for students ages 9 through high school. From Monday through Friday, June 5-9, Manga/Anime will be held in the morning, and Wizard School will take place in the afternoon.
In the morning workshop, students will explore manga and anime design techniques across a range of media — hand-painted shoes, digital design, hats and more. Participants should bring a pair of new, white canvas tennis shoes; all other materials are provided.When students graduate from Wizard School, they’ll be equipped to unleash their creative inner wizard. Participants will make a wand; design a wizardry crest; concoct potion bottles; build a dark forest terrarium; create a plush creature; and develop and play wizard games. All materials will be provided.
Alissa Cox, an independent artist since 2006, will present the workshops.
Coming from a family of artisans and artists, Cox grew up learning woodcrafts, stained glass, blacksmithing, jewelry craft, quilting and painting. She moved her business, Smoky Grove, to Ohio in 2012 and has exhibited at Columbus Winterfair, the Great Lakes Jazz Festival and the Black Swamp Arts Festival. Cox has taught several workshops in pyrography, sewing and painting.
The cost is $60 per workshop or $105 to take both workshops.
Both workshops will be held in the Center for the Visual Arts on the University’s Toledo Museum of Art Campus.
