Youth programs

The Ivy Tech Community College facilities—from computer labs and tech spaces to state-of-the art culinary facilities and arts studios—can open up a variety of learning experiences that are often difficult to obtain at home or in homeschool groups. The Ivy Tech Center for Lifelong Learning began its homeschool program to address this need with high quality, affordable educational experiences.

Youth Participation Form is required for all youth programs, in addition to registration and must be turned in to the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center located at 122 S Walnut Street in Bloomington. Questions? Call (812) 330-4400.

INTRODUCTION TO FIBER ARTS FOR KIDS SERIES (Ages 8-13)

This series is designed to introduce your child to the wonderful world of fiber arts. This class consists of four separate workshops: knitting, embroidery, needle felting, and shibori dyeing. The skills learned in these workshops are tactile, hands-on art forms that can help increase fine motor skills, creativity, and confidence. In each class your child will make a project to take home and will learn the basic skills to help them continue creating projects on their own.


Intro to Shibori Dyeing
In this workshop students will learn about indigo dye, choosing the right fabrics for dyeing, and preparing fabrics for shibori style dyeing. Students will complete a dyed project (scarf, bandana, t-shirt) to bring home. Dress in clothes and shoes that can get stained.
