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.
Graffiti and Functional Ceramics (3 day) & Comic Book Illustration (2 day) (August 17–21, 10 AM–3 PM)
Make art with your mark! Tweens will create their own tag using soft and sharp shapes, wild style, or Gothic font. Learn how to create 3D letters using perspective and make connected letters that flow. Tweens will draw a background setting and arrange graffiti into an aesthetically pleasing composition. Finally, tweens will build their own 3D graffiti wall and tag it! Fine art concepts such as composition, perspective, color theory, and sculpting methods will all be taught alongside graffiti techniques.
Functional Ceramics (3 day):
Our most popular week of camp! Tweens 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 (2 day):
Tweens will imagine and bring to life their own comic book characters! Campers 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.
