CourseGraphic SOLD OUT!

Summer camp at the Art Center is a one-week, hands-on camp that gives middles school and high school students an in-depth studio experience. Designed to empower teen artists by engaging their creativity and building their skills, students are introduced to two forms of artistic expression each week. Small class sizes, grouped by age & experience, enable our instructors to take a deep dive with the students so that they can build technique and grow their individual style.  

Studio Concentrations for the week of August 27:

Digital Arts - In this class, students will be introduced to a diverse array of digital techniques. Using software like Adobe Photoshop, they will explore the concept of fine art in the digital realm. Students will analyze the elements of art and how to apply them in the digital arts. They will also explore composition and concept development. Students must have a portable storage device, such as a thumb drive, as a backup for saving their progress in class. 

Traditional Animation - Create original animation on paper! This class will delve into character design, as well as the tricks and techniques of traditional animation. Students will also carefully examine their concepts through the use of storyboarding to help them develop their plot.
