Adult Program + Children/Family Program + Educator Workshop

Children ages 5 to 7 years old are invited to join this week-long summer art camp! Together we will learn about the Artist’s Alphabet and learn ways to use dots, lines, curves, spirals, and angles for creative drawing. We will also be looking at and creating fancy cats & tigers, Koi fish, and other animals. Then, we will explore the world of architecture learning basic terms and forms, such as arches, domes, columns, cantilevers, etc. We will be inspired by the beautiful, whimsical buildings and roof top gardens of the Austrian architecht Hundertwasser.  Using architecture blocks, students will have time to build, exploring their own ideas and forms. This will culminate in mixed media architectural drawings of their own using the Artist’s Alphabet. Every student will keep a portfolio to bring home at the end of the week.

This week-long workshop, students (ages 7 to 11 years) will explore painting, drawing, and collage to create artwork for big picture books. Teaching artist Alexis Iammarino will lead activities and share techniques that invite youth to create n' craft individually and collaboratively. Throughout the week we will read and share brilliantly illustrated books that celebrate color, pattern, landscape, and the animal kingdom. Join us to craft your own striking visual tale!

Tuesday through Thursday, April 19-21, 9 a.m. to noon
This school vacation week camp (for ages 9 to 12) will explore various studio methods.  Instructor Greta Van Campen will provide students with the tools and knowledge they need to continue discovering their own individual skills and interests. We'll sketch and draw from life, discuss and practice color theory with hands-on activities, use acrylics to work on color mixing and matching, and learn about different drawing, painting, and collage techniques. Throughout the week we will do both representational and abstract work, all the while maintaining an interest in exploring our surroundings and materials.

Tuesday through Thursday, February 16-18, 9 a.m. to noon
Art is FUN! In this camp for kids ages 6 to 8 years, we'll use creative skills to aid in play. Each day campers will create something to last that is both fun to make and to enjoy after the making is over. We'll draw, paint, cut, fold, tear, paste, and most importantly PLAY with the toys, games, and props we make!
