Painters Color Lab     July 13-17, M-F

In this camp we'll experiment with and explore different paint mediums and methods. Our inspiration will come from forests, gardens, cities and towns of the world. Students will draw and compose their own paintings and work in water based media from small to large scale. We’ll do lots of sketching and problem solving in this very color driven lab. Materials include canvas, papers, paints, drawing materials, cardboard, and miscellaneous objects. Our week culminates in a celebratory mini-art show on Friday, July 17th.

My son loved his art class with Teresa ~ it was fabulous to send him off with an eager smile each day. Not only did he learn about various artistic styles of art but also how to create them with his own expression and detail. Parent-Renae B.

Explore color, dimension and light by creating luminous sculptural objects inspired by ancient pottery, modern sculpture and animals.

We’ll also look to artists Louise Nevelson and George Morrison for inspiration to create assemblage wall pieces from wood. Students will build hanging wire animal and geometric shapes incorporating Movement and light.

Make your mark     August 10-14, M-F

In this final Summer Camp students will explore new ideas around what makes a mark and a drawing. We’ll work with wet and dry media and experiment with traditional; pencil, marker, pen, stamps and non-traditional tools; cardboard, wire, string and sticks. Each student will build their own spirograph, bundled element tool, and symbolic stamps and combine these with tracings and shape rubbings to explore layered imagery and shape building. Our focus will be on experimentation, tonal relationships, movement, scale and problem solving.  A mini-art show ends our explorative week on Friday, August 14th at 3:30 pm.
