July 21-25 : KINETIC ART STUDIO In this class we will create sculptures that move! Starting with 2D designs, students will construct 3D works that roll, hang, and change. We will build sculptures on wheels,and make collages with movable parts, mobiles and puppets. Neither the artwork nor the students will hold still.
July 28-August 1: DRAWING STUDIO
Drawing Studio is designed for students that love the act of drawing, as well as the drawing tools and materials that go with it. In this class, we will work with a variety of drawing pens, pencils, markers, and inks. Students will also draw on different surfaces, from wood to glass, to create their original pieces.
August 4-8: SCULPTURE STUDIO
Create art in the Third Dimension! We will build a body of work including sculptures, assemblages, reliefs, hanging sculptures and mobiles, using materials such as wood, clay, paper, Styrofoam, fabric and found objects. Working in 3D is an inspiring way to explore space, form, balance, movement, and can teach you how to view the world from different perspectives.
August 11-15: FABRIC STUDIO Fabric is amazing stuff: we wear it, we sleep in it, we sail with it, and we make art with it. In this class we’ll investigate fabric through drawing, collage, painting, and printmaking. Students will work with a variety of fibers, from wool roving to yarn to silks. They will get a chance to sew on the machine and by hand, weave and felt.
August 18-22: CLAY STUDIO
Think clay is all the same? In Clay Studio we will work with a variety of clays with different properties, like gray, red and modeling. Students will use their hands and tools to manipulate and alter their material. Projects include free standing sculptures and relief works.
August 25-29: PAINTING STUDIO
During Painting Studio, we delve into painting techniques and experiment with tools and materials of our own creation. Students will mix up their own special paints as well as paint on a variety of surfaces. We will explore different ways of applying paint using traditional and non-traditional tools to create portraits, creatures, and abstract pieces.
A snack will provided and a lunch brought from home will be eaten during end of camp discussion.
