These week-long fine art camps for teens will spark students’ creativity and imagination. Students in these camps will explore a variety of media through projects grounded in artistic movements, techniques, and concepts.
Camp will run from 2pm-5pm every weekday (there is no camp July 4 or 5).
With a different theme or focus each week, students can sign up for any combination of weeks.
Students will learn technical hand skills with dry and wet mediums such as graphite, charcoal, pastels, erasers, ink and also experiment with unconventional drawing materials such as tape and handmade marking materials. Elements of Line, Value and Composition will be stressed and encouraged to be pushed.
Students will explore and create a multitude of art mediums within the realm of craft, such soft sculpture in felt, embroidery on fabric and vintage papers, fabric cyanotypes, a woven wall piece and faux cake sculptures from recycled materials. Contemporary artists who use the same media in their practices will also be discussed; James Welling, Lucy Spiro, Brooke Sauer, Ana Rodriguez and Tanya Aguiniga.
In this camp students will become versed in painting techniques and concepts. This camp will cover a broad range of subjects including still life, landscape, abstract and portrait.
In this camp students will make a 5-page comic book collage using found materials and original techniques, like drawing, painting, and 3D sculpture. Who are your characters? What is your plot? Come join us as we tear, cut, glue, draw, paint, and splatter our way toward creating our own comic book universes.
In this camp, science and art come together to create works of art that literally light up! Students will make a variety of paintings and sculptures that incorporate LED lights.
