Friday Sensory Art Lab

with Alicia Applegate, Visual Artist and Childhood Educator
& Brittany DeNegris, Mixed Media Sculpture & Performance Artist

Fridays, Sept 1-Dec 16
*No class 11/11, 11/25

In Sensory Art Lab, we will craft art projects inspired by sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. We will assemble the very first ‘Salamander Band’ with our very own instruments; We will make sculptures out of paper pulp, emphasizing texture with the forms we make; We will explore interactive art with scents we love…

Alongside our planned curriculum, each child will also be encouraged to come to class with their own big ideas for new projects! Everyone will be assisted through the full art-making process, from brainstorming ideas, to planning structures and materials, to finally putting it all together. This class will provide a fun and engaging experience for your young artist to unlock their creative potential!

Meet your Teachers!

Alicia is a visual artist, arts educator and founding teacher with Salamander Arts! She received her BFA in Art Education from the Massachusetts School of Art & Design, and is currently obtaining her horticulture certification from the Barnes Arboretum at Saint Johns University. While using ceramics, textiles, painting and more, her passion lies in giving students the basic tools to develop their creativity into something tangible. Her art-making process revolves around collaboration, joy and trusting her intuition, which are principles that integrate seamlessly into her teaching practice.

Brittany DeNegris is a mixed media artist who sees art making as a way to explore infinite what ifs(?). Her practice is led by process, and plays with a fascination with materials, landscapes, language, and the richness of daily life. She has made projects and research internationally (Svalbard, South Korea, Japan, Mexico…) and throughout the US. She has taught at various universities and colleges, as well as worked with young children. She holds a BFA in Visual Communication from the University of Delaware and an MFA in Art from Carnegie Mellon University.
