Sun Valley Museum of Art is excited to present “Wet Felted Landscapes,” a workshop designed for teens entering grades 6–12. Teaching artist Kerry Brokaw will lead the workshop Wednesday, June 16, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Hailey Classroom. The Museum’s teen workshops are generously sponsored by Joyce B. Friedman.
Under the guidance of Kerry Brokaw, middle and high school students will create a personal two-dimensional landscape using wool roving. Kerry will guide students as they work with a wet felting technique using warm water, soap and agitation of colorful wool fibers. Details will be added using felting needles and dry felting technique. Kerry is an artist and Waldorf inspired educator who enjoys sharing her love of arts and crafts with students of all ages.
“Kerry is skilled at teaching art to children and regularly hosts classes,” Katelyn Foley, SVMoA’s Director of Education and Humanities explains. “We are excited to welcome her back for an exploration of the fun world of fiber art.”
