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 a 2pm Friday presentation together.

Emerging Artists is a program for older campers (ages 11-15) to experiment with more complex art subjects and materials and create projects of their own design under the guidance of our skilled art teachers.

Our first week of camp kicks off with our campers exploring the works of well-known artists through the centuries such as DaVinci, Monet, Picasso and O’Keeffe. Not only will they create 2D and 3D projects inspired by those artists, their works, mediums and techniques, but they will actually “put themselves” into some of those works.

What’s happening in your neck of the woods? This week is all about the weather… thinking of art works like Van Gogh’s “The Bridge in the Rain”; Wassily Kandinsky’s “Winter Landscape” and Edvard Munch’s “The Sun”, various weather conditions can play a big role in artist’s creations. This week campers will explore how they can incorporate different “elements” into their work using paint, 3-D materials, mixed media and more.
