CourseGraphic NEW! Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10-12)
Monday-Friday, 10AM-3PM
Is your budding artist ready to graduate to the next level of art camp? This NEW offering is especially for tweens, allowing them to explore art media and techniques in greater depth, during two daily studio sessions. Our talented teaching artists will guide tweens in developing their own personal style, and making art to be proud of.  On Fridays, celebrate your tween’s creations during our culminating art exhibition from 2-3PM.

Recycled Paper Sculptures & Drawing Portraits 
July 15-19, 2019, 10AM-3PM

Recycled Paper Sculptures
Discover paper’s potential as a sculpture medium. Explore various techniques to transform paper into a pliable, workable medium for creating sculptures. Using recyclable paper, tweens will learn to sculpt, carve, shape, and create papier-mâché with this ubiquitous material. Tweens will start with a concept drawing and work with the instructor to develop their vision!

Drawing Portraits
Take your observational drawing skills to the next level! Tweens will draw directly from a life portrait model, focusing on the features of the human face. This camp will explore light and shading, allowing teens to gain a better understanding of the facial structure through demonstration and drawing exercises.
