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. A SAVI T-shirt (please specify your kiddos size come summertime, in our form). Access to Crafternoons on Zoom. A Custom Alex Makes Art Sketchbook. Collectible SAVI holographic sticker badge to add to your summer sketchbook for each week that your kiddo attends.
.
Sibling Discount: There is a 15% sibling discount available.

We offer a payment plan that you can select at check-out. You will be notified at least one-week before your class begins for box pick-up or shipping updates.

Notes

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.


How To Participate

You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.

Loved:

My daughter thrived in her private class. Miss Alex guided all of my daughter's creative ideas around an agreed-upon theme into a personal self-expression that inspired continued growth in the subject. Her positive spirit and seasoned expertise, combined with my daughter's enthusiasm and drive, made the experience of making art full of wonder and joy.

Loved:

I really like the instructor and the class a lot. The instructor is always lively and prepared.

Improvements:

The instructor was not on the website on Twitch and I couldn't get the class this weekend, not the one before. The Twitch site says, "No videos available."

Loved:

Great 😇 instructor and class usually. Note: Parent comment on previous review.

Improvements:

Please stop using multiple websites for the children! Use one website linked to Sawyer and/ or the usual direct link to Khai, and not Twitch...

Loved:

We usually enjoy the classes and discussion, and instructor. We really enjoy the time slot as well and that it's therapeutic after a long week 😘!

Improvements:

Use one website for the Sawyer classes virtually. Take into consideration that not every parent wants their children/child surfing and connecting to foreign sites that mostly adults access. Personally, I don't want to keep adding space consuming Apps on our devices. Amen. Send notifications for the class start time and links, and any changes and cancellations ahead of time as a courtesy like Super now.com does.
