We’re taking your favorite art camp and bringing it to your home! Online art camp is a half-day camp for young artists ready to graduate to the next level, where they will explore art media and techniques in greater depth. The materials fee covers a specially curated art supply kit that is custom designed for each week of camp, which will be available for curbside pickup at the Art Center the week prior to the camp. Each camp culminates with a virtual art exhibition that will be recorded and shared with parents. This camp will be taught by the same talented teaching artists you know and love from the Art Center, who will be teaching remotely using Zoom. All you need to participate is a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access to Zoom. The week prior to camp, you will receive an email with the private Zoom link for your camp.
Essential Drawing and Painting Techniques
June 29–July 3, 1–4:30 PM
This camp is perfect for the tween looking to develop the foundational skills of drawing and painting who is ready for more in-depth instruction. Tweens will experience a combination of a live hour and a half of online instruction through Zoom and daily video lessons that the student will use to help them complete independent assignments that the instructor will review during the week. 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. In addition to the art supplies in this week’s supply kit, you will need to have the following: something to cover your work surface (newspaper, plastic table cloth, etc.), 1 pencil, 1 eraser, and 1 container for paint water (such as a single serving yogurt cup).
