Meet and Create with SD Hall of Fame artist, Dick Termes.
Exhibits & Workshops for All Ages This Week!
Spearfish, SD artist, Dick Termes will visit the SD Discovery Center in Pierre, SD June 27 & 28, 2019. His hands-on exhibit, Up, Down & All-Around will go up on Thursday and be on display through July. The exhibit shares information about the artist himself, examples of his art and hands-on opportunities to do art and geometry based upon Termes' work.
Thursday (6/27) afternoon from 3-5 pm, Termes will lead an art making workshop called Spherical Art from Geometry. Participants will use magnetic tools to explore polyhedrons and explore their own designs on geometric shapes. They will learn to draw the shapes on the sphere as in Termes' work and then apply their designs to a sphere. All participants will take home their own artwork. Anyone age 10 to 110 is welcome to participate. The fee is $10/member, $15/nonmember or $25/member family, $40/non-member family. Participants are welcome to arrive early to explore the exhibit before the workshop.
Friday (6/28) morning from 10:30 to noon, Termes will lead a workshop on creating 3-D Structures. This workshop helps participants understand how man has used polyhedra in creating wonderful sculptures and architecture, and how nature uses them in many of its creations. Magnetic stick and ball sets are used to help the participants each create 20 different polyhedra. Students see the world in a whole different way when they are done with this workshop. This workshop is for anyone 7 years and older. The fee is $5 for SDDC members and $10 for nonmembers.
The exhibit and the workshops are made possible, in part, by the South Dakota Arts Council.
