Find Your Passion
Whether or not you consider yourself an artist, this summer art camp will help you grow and gain confidence. Spend two weeks playing, learning, experimenting, and stretching as you experience the joy of creating art. Projects will include both 2D and 3D creations using a variety of materials and techniques. Explore, experiment and discover the infinite possibilities that arise when you are given the opportunity to just have fun. Projects will incorporate color and design instruction including sculpture, painting, drawing, silk painting, basketry, creating musical instruments, fabric art, bookmaking and found object assemblage. Expect individual instruction to support your own level of confidence, talent and skill development. Your workshop will culminate in an art exhibit, allowing you to show off your talents to family and friends.
Our Visual Arts classes do not require any type of assessment or portfolio to get into the program. Instructors will work with your child at the level that they are at. Your child will improve and learn new skills whether they are a beginner or have been an artist for years.
