Summer Art Camp for Tweens (ages 10–12)
Monday–Friday, 10 AM–3 PM
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.
Character Design & Animation and Everything Clay
August 21–25, 10 AM–3 PM
Character Design & Animation: Create your own characters and learn about animation. Spanning the fundamentals of drawing to scenario-based character design to storyboarding and beyond, this camp will teach tweens all about 2D hand-drawn animation. Referencing the art of masters such as Walt Disney and Hayao Miyazaki, campers will gather a historical perspective of the art of animation. Using tools such as storyboards, markers, watercolors, and model magic, tweens will bring their characters to life in a short animation.
This camp is perfect for the tween looking to explore various types of clay. During the week tweens will get to use the pottery wheel to throw and embellish a functional ceramic piece that will be glazed and fired in the kiln. Tweens will also learn the techniques for working with paper clay, from building an armature to give the clay structure to decorating their creations using paint, decoupage, or other materials. Finally, tweens will explore polymer clay by making everyday objects in miniature.
