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!
Fiber Sculptures & Intro to Webcomics
July 22-26, 2019, 10AM-3PM
Incorporate pattern and texture into sculpture through the use of fiber! Tweens will learn to bring their ideas and sketches to life, creating anything from plushies to abstract sculptures! While basic sewing may be involved, tweens will also explore other techniques to build their fiber sculptures. Pre-made patterns will be available, but with the guidance of their instructor, teens can also create their own templates for original designs.
Intro to Webcomics
Explore the world of webcomics! Tweens will learn various techniques for comics, as well as discuss strategies for starting and maintaining a successful project on the web. Students will learn how to improve their artistic skills, touch on ways in which they can safely and effectively use the web to their advantage, and discuss the best ways to manage consistent updates of their work online.
