Teen Summer Art Camps
June 8 – August 14
*No camp on July 3
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 3).
With a different theme or focus each week, students can sign up for any combination of weeks.
Themes for 2020 are yet to be announced – see below for some examples of last year’s camps!
Some of last year’s camps:
Students will learn technical 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.
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 create functional and sculptural pieces out of clay. Students will develop basic hand building and potter’s wheel skills. Emphasis will be placed on surface decoration by creating textures and working with underglazes. Students of all levels are welcome!
In this camp, students will get to explore the many expressive possibilities of printmaking and collage, with opportunities to combine both approaches. Printmaking projects will include foam prints, lino cuts and collagraphs. Collage techniques will include transfer and hand-painted papers for use in artworks that explore each student’s identity and interests.
