While other summer camps tend to close in July, the Kirk Newman Art School offers summer art camps in August! Space is still available to register your budding artist in a variety of age-appropriate camps.

Finding Inspiration in the Museum

Ages 4-Kindergarten:
Summer campers will be inspired by the current exhibition: On Paper: The Lincoln Center /List Art Collection. Students will tour the exhibition with an informative discussion lead by their teachers. Campers will then return to the art studios to pursue their two- and three-dimensional artistic endeavors. Each session will present a different creative process, giving students the opportunity to attend more than one camp. All materials are provided.

Please be sure to enroll your child in the grade level he or she will be entering in the fall of 2010.

This Art Camp schedule is designed for a full day's experience. Each session is one week, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a supervised one-hour lunch period. Please send a sack lunch with your child each day. As an option, students may attend the morning session or the afternoon session only. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional media will be explored. Two-dimensional media will include drawing, painting, and printmaking; three-dimensional media will include clay and other sculptural materials. Children will be separated into age groups, allowing teachers to structure classes based on skill level and maturity.

Ages 11-16:
This camp will provide a unique opportunity for young artists to work with a variety of faculty members. Each teacher will share the fundamentals and techniques of their 2- or 3-dimensional medium. The session is one week, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a supervised one-hour lunch period. Please provide a lunch for your student each day. Three-dimensional media will include ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, and glass. Two-dimensional media will include drawing, painting, photography and printmaking.
