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.
August 3–7, 1–4:30 PM
Tweens will transform everyday items into expressive, personal sculptures! Imagine all the artistic possibilities in combining materials such as paper, plastic, clay, and wire with found objects. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, tweens will learn various techniques to manipulate the materials and create one-of-a-kind sculptures. 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 tablecloth, etc.), 1 pair of scissors, 1 ruler, and 1 small container for paint water (such as a single serving yogurt cup), and a series of found objects (in addition to what we’re providing) that you can find around your home or in your family junk drawer to personalize your work. Examples of this are small broken toys, Lego bricks, paper clips, nuts and bolts, buttons, small pieces of wood, old costume jewelry, etc.
