Paint yourself a picture of a summer camp filled with amazing art work. This camp teaches age-specific art techniques, styles, and mediums using individual and small-group instruction. Whether you’re a beginning artist or already familiar with many techniques, this camp will offer you new and exciting ways to express your artistic vision.

Curriculum Areas Include

  • Polymer Clay: Campers create sculptures, decorative masks, vases, artistic jewelry pieces and mosaics. Standard techniques of clay sculpting and armature building help create new and exciting projects.
  • Beyond the Rainbow-Painting: Campers learn various techniques of painting through watercolor, tempera, acrylic paints and multimedia paint projects. Each student experiences methods of mixing paints and shading, and 2-D and 3-D projects are addressed while learning different brush strokes.
  • Cartooning for Graphic Storytelling: Grades 2-5 Students learn how to design their own original characters and through the medium of comics, tell simple stories using the four panel comic strip. Students are encouraged to be as original as possible and emphasis is on creating comic strips that are easy to read. Students also learn some basic comic strip design and composition principles to help them tell stories. Grades 6-9 Students learn to create comic book art and illustration for publication. Techniques such as penciling, inking, page layout and drawing fundamentals are taught in the service of telling stories. Students also learn how to create work for publication. The goal of the class is to create and anthology comic book of student work by the end of the session.
