July 11 & 12 AND a glazing day (Aug 1 or 2) (rising 2nd-6th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
During the first two days of camp, we will experiment with slab building techniques and campers can choose to work on animal pinch pots, coil pots or their own clay idea creations. The pottery wheel will be available for experimentation as well. All clay pieces will be fired and campers return for one glazing day (9-12 am), on a day that fits their schedule. (August 1or 2 are scheduled glaze day options, but I can open some days in late July to meet everyone’s needs too).
August 8 & 9 (rising 2nd-6th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
Back by popular demand, this project features beautiful splashy watercolor techniques on paper. We use the paper to collage a seascape complete with boats, corals, mermaids and anything else campers fancy. The art will be frame worthy! This is one of my favorite camps.
August 15 & 16 (rising 3nd-7th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
I’ll teach some of my favorite underpainting methods and show you how to make your very own saltwater marsh scene with layers of paint and LOTS of color. This is the “fine art” version of summer camps where we paint on canvas like professional artists. Please wear old clothes that can get stained.
August 22 & 23 (rising 3nd-7th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
In this camp, we will create a beautiful scarf using methods of batik wax resist and fabric dyeing. Scarves can be worn, of course, or they can be used to wrap a special gift, to frame as art, or as a fun part of your next interpretive dance routine!
September 13th: Small group art lessons begin on Thursdays from 2:45-3:45 p.m. (rising 2nd-5th grades)
