This creative camp will focus on ideas often seen as opposites such as artificial / natural, individual / collective, temporary / permanent - and what these may have to do with artmaking. We will try out many different media and techniques, paying attention to the artistic process.
We may make temporary mandalas with objects found on a walk, or fruit sculptures to eat - as well as doodle in sketchbooks and create wheatpaste stickers.
Ages 7-11 // July 1-5 [NO CAMP JULY 4] // 1-4pm // $150 (includes all materials)
Students may bring lunch and combine morning and afternoon camps for a full day, 9-4pm.
