Summer Art Camps

Little Picassos

 

Session 1: June 18 – 22  Session 2: June 25 – 29    

 

Get your preschooler’s summer vacation off to a colorful & glittery start with this morning art camp! Young artists will discover a variety of new ways to put paint to paper (think forks, Legos, fruit, vegetables, sticks, and stones), learn how to make mobiles, masks, puppets, splatter paintings, and more!

 

Each class will begin with a well-known story book and some practice recreating the art from that book. Weather permitting, we will take a nature walk each day to draw what we see in a handmade sketchbook.

Art Carnival

Session 3:  July 9 – 13  Session 4: August 4 – 8   


Like a carnival with rides and magicians, elephants and clowns, this class has it all: painting, sculpting, mask-making, mobile crafting and more. Each class will be a surprise, from the artist we study, to the materials we use! Be prepared to get a little messy with papier mache, clay and homemade paint! 


Weather permitting, each morning we will begin with a nature walk to warm up our drawing skills by drawing what we see. These observations will be collected in a handmade sketchbook that will go home at the end of the week.


Art Around the World

Session 5: July 23 – 27  Session 6: August 20 – 24 


Join us for a worldwide exploration of art! Each day we will pick one country to focus on and will create a variety of projects inspired by their culture and artists.  Using our imaginations and our artist’s eyes, we will travel the globe, painting Japanese bridges, making Mexican masks, sculpting Native American teepees, and more! For extra inspiration, we will also listen to music and read stories originating from each country.


Weather permitting, each morning we will begin with a nature walk to warm up our drawing skills by drawing what we see. These observations will be collected in a handmade sketchbook that will go home at the end of the week
