Hands-On Project-Based PD Offerings

We are happy to share we are introducing a new series of hands-on project-based professional development opportunities. See below for the first two offerings, and check back for more coming soon.
Each registrant will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of the individual workshop. If you attend a total of 5 unique workshops (10 hours), you can submit a request for a PDP certificate.

All workshops will be offered twice a month – once on a Saturday morning and once on a Thursday evening. The content for Saturday and Thursday will be the same.

If you would like the member pricing, consider joining MAEA/NAEA: massarted.com/join-renew

Pay What You Can Option
If you are unable to pay the MAEA/NAEA Member or Non Member ticket fees, please consider paying as much as you can using the “Pay What You Can” option. Without your support these workshops would not be possible.

SCULPTING WITH MODEL MAGIC SESSION 1  – Feb 11 9:00 – 11:00 am
SCULPTING WITH MODEL MAGIC SESSION 2 – Feb 16 6:00 – 8:00 pm

In this two-hour hands-on virtual workshop learn the tricks to master Model Magic and guide your students in creating durable sculptures that delight. If you don’t have a kiln or are just looking to incorporate more “clay” in your curriculum without the added cost and added work of earthenware this workshop is made for you. In two-hours complete at least two projects and gather ideas for many more that you can try in your classroom.

Techniques you will master:

  • Custom colorization
  • Bracing
  • Building using basic forms
  • Choosing the best sculpting tools
  • Surface finishing

Model Magic pouches from a class pack of white will be the main material, but a detailed additional supply list will be provided prior to the workshop. Colors can be used, too, but are not required.

A supply list and zoom link will be provided via email prior to the workshop.

Additional future offerings will be added soon!
