Summer SAVI: Photography
Week 6: August 16 - August 20, 2021
9 AM - 12 PM EST
Our 6th Week of SAVI Summer has arrived! Appreciate your own perspective, and show us what you see! From your phone to analogous modes of photography, students will not only learn how to take great photos, but will also utilize these photos in creative ways.
Some of the crafts to look forward to: sun printing, portraits and lighting, staging and arranging, ispy puzzle, vegetable person, photographing motion. note: an ipad or digital device (ie. mobile phone) will work great for this. we WILL be sending a camera along in this box!
What is Summer SAVI?
Social Art Virtual Immersion ("SAVI" for short) is one of the flagship offerings of Alex Makes Art: an interactive group art-making experience with a carefully curated box component. Each 5-day session of SAVI dives into a new medium. We explore a variety of art forms through drawing prompts, group crafting, virtual museum tours, guest artists, interactive art talks + live demos, studio walk-throughs, creative challenges, and more! ​
Summer SAVI runs from late June - August 2021. Participants sign up for classes Monday through Friday, five consecutive days, from 9 AM - Noon, EST. Each week of SAVI dive into a different mode and medium of making art.
Tuition: Each week of SAVI will be a flat rate of $449 per artist. In addition to your SAVI Box, here is what you get with your tuition: Studio Hours: every Wednesday studio hours will be hosted by Mr. Khai. This is a place where kiddos can participate in a space where they can continue their crafts under the guidance of one of our instructors.

Collectible SAVI holographic sticker badge to add to your summer sketchbook for each week that your kiddo attends.

Be sure to prep your area for a potential crafty mess! A brown paper bag with masking tape, reusable tablecloth, or garbage bag are some of our favorite go-to's for setting a space. We recommend a parent in earshot if your kiddo is new to crafting alone with new materials (especially the days we have a glue gun as an option!). A smock and a snickity snack are always great to have nearby. Did you know that artists can get hangry in record time? Since we'll be on camera for three hours together, please find a place in the house that has a reliable outlet so battery life will hold for the duration of class.
