CourseGraphic NEW! Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10-12)
Monday-Friday, 10AM-3PM
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! 


Abstract Explorations in Drawing and Painting, Expressive Ceramics, and Fine Art Mixed Media Collage
August 12-16, 2019, 10AM-3PM


Abstract Explorations in Drawing and Painting
Explore different techniques and styles that make great abstract works of art, as well as how the traditional Elements of Art and color theory affect the creation of such works. Tweens will practice applying the techniques in their own artwork to achieve their desired aesthetic in abstraction.

Expressive Ceramics (3 days) and Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 days)
Expressive Ceramics: Tweens will learn the fundamentals of hand-building, wheel throwing, and applying glazes as they create expressive works of art in clay.
Fine Art Mixed Media Collage: Explore the possibilities of collage! Utilizing a variety of materials, tweens will investigate different approaches and techniques to the art of collage. Materials may include textiles, magazines, scrapbook paper, and construction paper, as well as personal photographs, or hand-painted paper. The possibilities are endless!
