Tween Art Camp

Experimental Fashion & Jewelry Design >

August 3–7, 10 AM–3 PM

Experimental Fashion: Create fashion! Tweens will explore traditional and non-traditional fashion design, including sketching concepts and bringing them to fruition, making anything from everyday clothing items to cosplay! Multiple sewing and fabricating techniques will be covered while tweens create their own wearable art. Pre-made clothing templates will be available, but students will also have the opportunity to design their own patterns with the instructor’s guidance.
Jewelry Design: Make your own jewelry! Tweens will experiment with jewelry-making techniques to create pendants and bracelets of their own original designs. After starting with a sketch, the instructor will help tweens use a variety of materials to create their vision. Projects may include, but are not limited to, wrapped wire pendants, polymer clay canes, and recycled paper beads.

 

Teen Art Camp

Functional Ceramics (3 day) & Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 day) and Soft Sculpture

August 3–7, 10 AM–3 PM

Functional Ceramics (3 day): Our most popular week of camp! Teens will learn the fundamentals of hand-building, wheel throwing, and applying glazes while creating functional ceramic items, such as cups, mugs, bowls, and plates.
Fine Art Mixed Media Collage (2 day): Explore the possibilities of collage! Utilizing a variety of materials, teens will investigate different approaches and techniques to the art of collage. Materials may include textiles, magazines, scrapbook paper, construction paper, hand-painted paper, or even the teen camper’s own photographs.
NEW! Soft Sculpture: This camp takes the best of fiber arts and sculpture and merges them into a whole new art form: soft sculpture! Artists from Richard Serra to Louise Bourgeois have explored this unique medium. Using textural materials such as felt, fibers, and embellishment, along with imagination and creativity, campers will design, prototype, and create both relief sculpture and sculpture in the round. Being able to sew is a bonus, but not necessary, since multiple methods of soft sculpture construction will be covered. Campers will create several projects ranging in scale over the course of the week.
