Art Camp for Teens (ages 13-18)
Our 2018 Art Camp for Teens was almost completely sold out! We’re opening more spots for teens this summer because we know it will be just as popular. Teens ages 13+ will gain an in-depth studio art experience that engages their creativity and enhances their skills. Each week teens will concentrate on two focus areas during their studio sessions. Small class size enables our talented teaching artists to take a deep dive with teens to build their techniques and individual styles. On Fridays, celebrate your teen’s creations during our culminating art exhibition from 2-3PM.
Assemblage & Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques
July 8-12, 2019, 10AM-3PM (option 2)
Teens will transform everyday items into expressive, personal sculptures! Imagine all the artistic possibilities in combining materials such as paper, plastic, clay, and wire with found objects. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, teens will learn various techniques to manipulate the materials and create one-of-a-kind sculptures.
Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques
This camp is perfect for the teen looking to develop the foundational skills of drawing and painting.Teens will exercise their observational skills and gain familiarity with diverse media (such as graphite, charcoal, acrylics, and watercolors) through drawing exercises that may include gesture drawings, blind contours, and contour drawing exercises. Linear perspective, color theory, and building form with light and shadow will also be covered as teens render their artistic creations.
