Description

This expressive class could be summed up in the famous quote by Pablo Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” While learning about Spanish artist Joan Miro, campers will enjoy creating without making a “something” and revel in the freedom of abstraction. Line, shape and color techniques will be examined while campers practice “automatic” drawing techniques. Additionally, lines and shapes will be observed and sketched indoors and out. The cubist style of Pablo Picasso and surrealist style of Salvador Dali (two of Miro’s contemporaries) will also be incorporated to create fun, childlike expressive abstractions!

What better way to appreciate our beautiful state than to explore our favorite mountain activities! Fishing down the stream, camping in the woods, hiking to the peak, swimming in the lake, and watching the sunset. Students will create beautiful works of art using a variety of materials and techniques to capture these fun outdoor activities! Some inspiring books that will be read this week are A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee, Wish for a fish, On Beyond Bugs and more! Pack your backpack full of imagination and get ready to create!

It’s true - some art materials do not jive. However, this is a good thing for budding artists! In this camp, young learners will explore a multitude of resist techniques. We will use wax, glue, tempera, tape, and even vaseline to create original, one of a kind artworks! Campers will learn there is no wrong way to make art in this fun exploratory camp. Students will develop their fine motor and language skills while the teacher sparks their scientific and creative imagination. Come and join the fun!
