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.
Textile and Surface Design & Art Journaling
August 5-9, 2019, 10AM-3PM (option 1)
Textile and Surface Design
Discover the basics of textile and fabric design. Teens will use a variety of mediums and explore different mark-making techniques, such as fabric painting and block printing, in this camp to create unique textile patterns. Teens will gather inspirations, sketch patterns, and execute designs to create fabric swatches of their patterns, as well as a tote bag decorated with their pattern of choice.
Art Journaling is a wonderful habit for everyone, not just artists! Keeping a journal that contains one’s inspirations, frustrations, dreams, and fears is a way to creatively process everyday life. Teens will make their own journal with simple bookbinding techniques and will fill its pages both inside and outside of camp. We’ll also encourage teens to share their journaling journey during camp.
