Kids will paint, draw, collage plus more while energizing their artistic spirit and gain confidence through creativity. Subject of focus will be various landscape concepts both representational and abstract. No experience necessary. Emphasis will be on creative output, basic design elements & principles and delving into the extraordinary world of visual art production, mess making and FUN!
It's All About Me!
In this fun, fast-paced art camp, campers will create self-portraits in a variety of artist’s media including photography, computer graphics, painting, collage, and more! No experience is necessary as we investigate (through art-making) what we know about ourselves, what we show about ourselves, and how our likes and dislikes paint pictures about us. Campers will take home several pieces of ready-to-hang artwork upon the completion of the camp!
In this hands-on exploration, we will engage in a range of traditional and contemporary crafts. Drawing upon an exciting variety of materials and techniques, we will create both functional and decorative artworks. Projects will include weaving, needle felting, basketry, batik, macramé, warm glass, ceramics, book making, jewelry design, and sewing. It will be a fun-filled adventure, sure to satisfy busy hands and creative minds.
