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.

Printmaking Techniques, Functional Ceramics, and Comic Book Illustration
July 29-August 2, 2019, 10AM-3PM

Printmaking Techniques
In this unique camp, tweens will create their own limited-edition prints on our professional presses! Tweens will learn various techniques, styles, and tools of the printmaking trade through demonstrations and hands-on practice. This camp will cover techniques, including plexi-glass etching and mono-printing, as tweens create original prints that are either one-of-a-kind or editionable!

Functional Ceramics (3 days) and Comic Book Illustration (2 days)
Functional Ceramics: Our most popular week of camp! Tweens will learn the fundamentals of hand-building, wheel throwing, and applying glazes while creating functional ceramic items, such as cups, mugs, bowls, and plates.
Comic Book Illustration: Tweens will imagine and bring to life their own comic book characters! Tweens will learn different illustration techniques and styles to help them create an expressive and unique cast of characters. Once students have designed and developed their characters, they will create a comic strip featuring their newly imagined cast.
