[past event] Summer Camp - Sound Art


Ages 10 and up
July 16 - 20
9am - noon
Cost: $150 (scholarships available)
Students may bring lunch and combine morning and afternoon camps for a full day, 9-4pm.

In this camp, we will study and create works of art using sound as the primary medium. Recorded sound, mechanical sound, incidental sound, imaginary sound -- the possibilities are just about endless! The beginning of the week will be focused on learning a bit about the field of sound art, and preliminary experiments; later in the week students will work toward creating their own sound-based artwork. Limited to 8 participants.
