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.

Drawing Portraits and Photography & Digital Photo Editing (July 13–17, 10 AM–3 PM)

Drawing Portraits: Take your observational drawing skills to the next level! Tweens will draw directly from a life portrait model, focusing on the features of the human face. This camp will explore light and shading, allowing tweens to gain a better understanding of the facial structure through demonstration and drawing exercises.

NEW! Photography & Digital Photo Editing: Capture and edit images to create expressive photographs. Tweens will learn the basic concepts of photography, experimenting with light, composition, depth of field, and more. Tweens will gain an understanding of how to use a digital camera and will spend time in the digital lab editing their photographs. Students will need to bring a digital camera or smart phone with a camera for this course. Students must also have a portable storage device, such as a thumb drive, as a backup for saving their progress in class.
