Led by Lauren Linahon, art education masters student, UI College of Education.
Stanley Creates is an interactive program for children and teens to learn artmaking techniques using everyday materials. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, participants will play with materials to create unique projects at home. Lauren Linahon will demonstrate the process and provide feedback and support to participants as they make their artwork.
In this workshop, participants will make their own prints with materials found at home. Taking Elizabeth Catlett’s lithographs as an example, Linahon will guide kids through the process of making a monoprint (a single impression of a design).
Lauren Linahon is a graduate student in art education. She has led artmaking workshops for United Action for Youth and taught studio sections of the course Create, Imagine, Play: Human Development through Arts at the University of Iowa.
After registration, you will receive a welcome letter with a supply list, all of which are common household items.
Video instructions will be available after the event for those who are unable to attend, but would like to make the projects.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the SMA in advance at 319-335-1727.
