CourseGraphic NEW! Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10-12)
Monday-Friday, 10AM-3PM
Last summer we heard that many tween budding artists were eager to go beyond our classic kids’ camp. We’re excited to announce that not only are we again offering the most creative camp in town, we’re also launching a NEW specialized offering just for tweens! Similar to our teen option, this camp encourages skill building through longer length studio sessions enabling tweens to create focused projects, while also exploring art media and techniques in greater depth. Like all of our camps, it is taught by talented teaching artists. On Fridays, celebrate your tween's creations during our culminating art exhibition from 2–3PM. Don’t delay—we anticipate this offering will sell-out as our teen camp did last summer! 


Assemblage & Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques 
July 8-12, 2019, 10AM-3PM

Assemblage
Tweens will transform everyday items into expressive, personal sculptures! Imagine all the artistic possibilities in combining materials such as paper, plastic, clay, and wire with found objects. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, tweens will learn various techniques to manipulate the materials and create one-of-a-kind sculptures.

Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques
This camp is perfect for the tween looking to develop the foundational skills of drawing and painting.Tweens will exercise their observational skills and gain familiarity with diverse media (such as graphite, charcoal, acrylics, and watercolors) through drawing exercises that may include gesture drawings, blind contours, and contour drawing exercises. Linear perspective, color theory, and building form with light and shadow will also be covered as tweens render their artistic creations.
