Children's and Teen Art Camps Summer 2013

Summer campers will be inspired by the current museum exhibition and the permanent collection. Students will tour the museum 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 2013

Ages 4-Kindergarten

Grades 1-5

We offer a full day experience from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a supervised one-hour lunch period (please send a sack lunch with your child each day), or sessions that are morning or afternoon only. Each session is one week, Monday through Friday and over the course of the week the camper will get to have fun, be creative and learn while making two-dimension and three-dimesional art works. 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.

Local video artist and teacher John Wagner leads this week-long filmmaking intensive that will teach the student about the important elements that happen behind the scenes in the making of a motion picture. We will learn the fundamentals in how to properly use cameras for capturing footage, microphones for clear audio and be introduced to the computer software used for editing. By the end of the camp each student will have a working copy of a short project to show and to take home with them. Bring a snack for break periods.
