Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10–12)
Monday–Friday, 10 AM–3 PM
After a sold-out debut in 2019, we are adding more options for our tween campers! This offering is for young artists ready to graduate to the next level of art camp, where they will explore art media and techniques in greater depth during two daily studio sessions. Our talented teaching artists will guide tweens in developing their own personal style while they learn and refine their art skills. On Fridays, celebrate your tween’s creations during a culminating family exhibition and gallery walk from 2–2:45 PM.
Assemblage and Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques (June 29–July 3, 10 AM–3 PM)
Tweens 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, tweens 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 tween looking to develop the foundational skills of drawing and painting. Tweens will use 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 drawings. Linear perspective, color theory, and building form with light and shadow will also be covered as tweens render their artistic creations.
