NEW! Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10-12)
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!
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!
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.
