The goal for this first annual summer art experience is to make a difference in young artists' lives by introducing them to the fine arts fundamental principles of visual art.  This will be fostered through developing core skills in various media.  In addition, our hope is to enlighten students on a variety of periods throughout art history by depicting draftsman, painters, sculptors and designers who significantly influence the way we look at art.

The curriculum was created to support individuality in student’s artistic expression.  Students will explore and gain knowledge in various media, techniques and processes and at the same time, enhance their visual communication skills.

Here's what we have planned for our week-long, fun-filled July camp:


Cross-Contour Drawing Composition  Inspired by Renaissance Master, Raphael, studnets will learn to depict an object in a cross-contour manner while emphasizing observational skills and developing individual expression. 


Fractured Still-Life Painting  Students will depict a realistic still-life and fracture it in an imaginative, creative way. They will learn to work with a limited color pallet and perfect the craftsmanship of markers. Students will be introduced to Cubism and Spanish Master, Pablo Picasso.


Landscape  This class will introduce, Pointillism,  a method of painting around color contrasts in which shade and tone are build up through dots of paint. Inspired by George Seurat, French Master and creator of Pointillism, students will create a watercolor painting using both brush and Q-tips.


Quilt Design  Students will be introduced an inspirational portfolio of an American Artist Catherine Kleeman while learning about the biomorphic and geometric shapes as a design element.  Students will design a one-of-a-kind quilt using markers and sharpies in a limited pallet.


Floral Design  Students will explore the use of line and shading in design and experiment with hatching, crosshatching, and stippling in developing a value in form. They will be introduced to artwork by  American Artist, Claudia Nice.


Note: Weather-permitting, this camp may take walking field trips. Please send your child with appropriate shoes and outwear. A healthy snack will be provided daily.
