Location FIA Art School – Studio 5

Youth Membership Activity

Steampunk artists are mixed media artists inspired by the Victorian era and science-fiction. By combining springs, gears, brass, vintage papers, metallic paints, stencils, and charms these artists give a modern twist to a bygone era. Youth Members will focus on creating a mixed media butterfly inspired by the Steampunk culture and Victorian butterfly collections. We will be using heavy watercolor paper for the butterfly that will require good cutting skills. Materials are provided, however, young artists are encouraged to bring junk jewelry, broken watches, chains, single earrings, and old charms to personalize their creations. 

Participants should plan to be present for the full two-hour project. Students must have a FIA Youth Membership to participate. Not a member? Join at the door for $20.
