Online Summer Art Camps Coming Soon!
True, the pandemic has presented many challenges to the way we do things but it has also brought us growth. We are working hard to retool our educational programing to bring you new virtual opportunities. Watch for our new online summer "camps" that will provide art-making opportunities for young budding artists. Keep your eye out for new opportunities coming soon.
Online Summer Art Camps
Each camp session, a week in length, includes one unique art lesson to explore per day. Lessons will be presented via a pre-recorded video and the projects may be completed at the participants leisure. Participants will also have the opportunity to video conference with the teaching artist to ask questions and receive feedback. At the end of each session participants may share their completed projects with us to be presented in an online Art Exhibition. The cost of the each camp includes instruction and needed supplies. Registration coming soon.
Art Camp Sessions
Textiles with teaching artist Regina Pericini
Kids will explore new avenues of creativity and learn the basics of surface design. Kids will try, sewing, printing, drawing and design, as well as, block printing to create truly unique final projects!
It All Starts with a Dot with teaching artist Tara Thelen
Students will explore a variety of drawing techniques such as geometric and 3D drawing, line displacement, and creating depth and form through shading. We'll then use those techniques as the basis for portraiture, starting with all the facial measurements and then moving on to more shading and techniques for creating the individual facial features. We'll wrap up the course with perspective drawings (1 and 2 point perspective), again, with a focus on shading and technique.

Kids can keep cool this summer by exploring a variety of interesting art mediums. Kids will find creativity in discovering ways to work with clay, fiber, paper and found objects. Kids will be amazed in their ability to create their own robots, bugs and books.
