Art Adventure Camp
Elementary (Ages 6-10)
Round 1: June 28- June 30
Join us for a week of artistic exploration for summertime fun! Art campers will learn different techniques and explore different media as they learn about historical artwork and artists. As we cut, draw, paint, glue, play games and interact with each other, children will have an enriching art experience as well as a fun time with new friends! Come join us for a fun-filled week of art adventure!
Paul Cezanne: Still Life Drawing
Using pastels, pencils, and watercolors, students will see the works of the Dutch Masters and of Paul Cezanne’s. Each will produce a still life piece of fruits, and flowers using pastels and charcoal paper.
Students will learn about this master artist. Raised in a family of stone crafters, his first love was carving. He was then commissioned by the Roman Catholic church to paint the Sistine Chapel. The children will paint upside down under the tables. Michelangelo painted by candlelight on wooden scaffolding for four years to create his masterpiece!
Students will be creating collages simulating 16th century Italian artist, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, and his painting portraits using fruits, vegetables, fish, and flowers.
All materials will be provided by the instructor. Limited spots available. Students may bring a snack and a drink with them.
Registration Deadline: Friday, June 24
