Camp Overview 

Every week campers will experiment with a multitude of art mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture,collage and more designed around a central theme. Themes apply to both camps with unique and independent projects done in each one. Campers will practice art making skills that will expand and challenge the skills they already have in a safe, encouraging and fun environment surrounded by artwork that is in the Art Center’s four galleries. They will learn and hone art skills and color mixing, how to paint with artist paintbrushes and draw with artist quality pencils, markers, pastels and more. Every Friday afternoon campers will present their for family and friends. Both camps will have lunch, before care and after care and Friday presentation together.

Emerging Artists is a new program for older campers (ages 11 and up) to experiment with more complex art subjects and materials and create projects of their own design under the guidance of our skilled art teachers.

Camp Weekly Descriptions

Week 1: June 12 - 16 "POP! Goes the Easel"

Campers will explore Pop Art techniques and methods using bright colors and new ways of looking at the world around them. Who was Andy Warhol? Roy Lichtenstein? Man Ray? And what were they trying to say through their art? What can we say through our art today? We will use 2D and 3D mediums to create exciting, pop culture themed art works and share our thoughts and views.

This week we will walk in the footsteps of art giants by creating works of art inspired by well known artists and their works. We will put own spin on their pieces while using similar techniques – painting like Van Gogh, Collaging like Matisse, making mobiles like Calder, etc. We’ll learn how these artists created these works and in many cases, the materials they needed to create them.
