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!
Carving Techniques & Illustration and Character Design
August 5-9, 2019, 10AM-3PM
Create art in the round! Tweens will learn to use sculpting tools and techniques to create 3D sculptures.Tweens will go beyond just the hand-building process; they will learn more advanced techniques to refine and build their sculptures with carving tools. Students will work with a variety of sculpture materials and complete a 3D sculpture during this camp.
Illustration and Character Design
Create your own characters for comics and story books! Tweens will explore gesture drawing, perspective, foreshortening, and figurative anatomy in order to draw amazing comics. Instruction will also cover illustrating facial expressions for characters, as well as developing facial features and structure.
