CourseGraphic 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.

Fiber Sculptures and Intro to Webcomics (July 6–10, 10 AM–3 PM)

Fiber Sculptures: Incorporate pattern and texture into sculpture through the use of fiber! Tweens will learn to bring their ideas and sketches to life, creating anything from plushies to abstract sculptures! While basic sewing may be involved, tweens will also explore other techniques to build their fiber sculptures. Pre-made patterns will be available, but with the guidance of their instructor, tweens can also create their own templates for original designs.

Intro to Webcomics: Explore the world of webcomics! Tweens will learn various techniques for comics, as well as discuss strategies for starting and maintaining a successful project on the web. Campers will focus on improving their artistic skills, and will touch on ways in which they can safely and effectively use the web to their advantage. They will also discuss the best ways to manage consistent updates of their work online.
