CourseGraphic Art Camp for Teens (ages 13-18)
Monday-Friday, 10AM-3PM
Our 2018 Art Camp for Teens was almost completely sold out! We’re opening more spots for teens this summer because we know it will be just as popular. Teens ages 13+ will gain an in-depth studio art experience that engages their creativity and enhances their skills. Each week teens will concentrate on two focus areas during their studio sessions. Small class size enables our talented teaching artists to take a deep dive with teens to build their techniques and individual styles. On Fridays, celebrate your teen’s creations during our culminating art exhibition from 2-3PM.

Expressive Ceramics, Fine Art Mixed Media Collage, and Figure Drawing
August 26-30, 2019, 10AM-3PM (option 1)

Expressive Ceramics (3 days) and Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 days)
Expressive Ceramics: Teens will learn the fundamentals of hand-building, wheel throwing, and applying glazes as they create expressive works of art in clay.
Fine Art Mixed Media Collage: Explore the possibilities of collage! Utilizing a variety of materials, teens will investigate different approaches and techniques to the art of collage. Materials may include textiles, magazines, scrapbook paper, and construction paper, as well as personal photographs, or hand-painted paper. The possibilities are endless!

Figure Drawing
Refine your observational drawing skills! Through direct observational studies of a clothed life figure model, teens will learn to draw the human form. This camp will explore light and shading, as well as study major forms and contours, to gain a better understanding of anatomical accuracy in figural renderings. All work will be completed in black and white.
