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.
Traditional Animation, Functional Ceramics, and Comic Book Illustration
July 22-26, 2019, 10AM-3PM (option 1)
Create original animation on paper! This camp will delve into character design, and include extensive animation and drawing exercises, to help teens better understand the tricks and techniques of traditional animation. Teens will develop their concepts through the use of storyboarding to help them imagine and refine their plot.
Functional Ceramics (3 days) and Comic Book Illustration (2 days)
Our most popular week of camp! Teens 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:
Teens will imagine and bring to life their own comic book characters! Teens 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.
