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, August camp:
Anatomy of Trees Study of organic forms and textural drawings inspired by American Artist, Claudia Nice.
Monochromatic Painting Inspired by Spanish master, Pablo Picasso, and his blue and pink periods, students will study this approach to floral depiction of mixing shades and tints.
Negative Painting Students will study wet on wet watercolor painting approach inspired by English artist, Joanne Boone.
