CourseGraphic Summer Art Camp for Teens (ages 13+)
Monday–Friday, 10AM–3PM
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 a culminating family exhibition and gallery walk from 2–2:45 PM.

Functional Ceramics (3 day) & Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 day) and Photography & Digital Photo Editing (August 3–7, 10 AM–3 PM)

Functional Ceramics (3 day): Our most popular week of camp! Teens will learn the fundamentals of hand-building, wheel throwing, and applying glazes while creating functional ceramic items, such as cups, mugs, bowls, and plates.
Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 day): Explore the possibilities of collage! Utilizing a variety of materials, teens will investigate different approaches and techniques to the art of collage. Materials may include textiles, magazines, scrapbook paper, construction paper, hand-painted paper, or even the teen camper’s own photographs.

NEW! Photography & Digital Photo Editing: Capture and edit images to create beautiful photographs. Teens will learn the basic concepts of photography, experimenting with light, composition, depth of field, and more. Teens 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.
