Summer 2023 Art Camps: 

This summer art camp involves lots of hands on art making! Students will explore a mix of medias such as painting, sculpture, fibers and drawing. Each class will begin with a little activity, a game or drawing, then we will use the reaminder of the time to create individual projects and end with cleaning up. 

This is a place where students can create new projects and just have fun! Potential projects are: clay sculpture, yarn weaving, watercolor scene with fun blended colors, and step by step drawing paying attention to proportion.
