Students make their own musical instruments – no experience necessary! While learning about the families of musical instruments, students grasp the basic mechanics of sound production. Using both new and recycled materials to make the instruments, students then construct a simple instrument from each instrument family from scratch! 

All Things Clay
Students learn several techniques used in ceramics including wheel throwing, slab building, coiling and pinch pots. Students use underglazes to embellish their artwork. 
Note to Ceramics Students: students will be underglazing their work before final firing. Clay must be completely dry before glazing and firing. All ceramics students are invited to come to class on Monday, August 4, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. At this time ceramics work will be dry and ready for glazing. After the glazing session, the work will be fired and then ready to take home.

Digital Photography: Creating with Light
Students must bring a digital camera on the first day of class and for the remainder of the week. Students learn about the elements of photography and ways to manipulate camera settings. They also discover editing techniques in Photoshop, working in ISU’s Mac Lab. 

Theater: The Imagination Stage
This class introduces students to theater. Throughout the week, students learn to project their voices, body movement, and how to build a character through enjoyable workshops and practical applications. The workshops culminate with students performing a short one-act play.
