Painting with Pastels and Graffiti (ages 10-12) WAITLIST ONLY

Painting with Pastels: Pastel straddles the line between painting and drawing. During this camp, tweens will be introduced to the essentials needed to draw and paint using pastels. This will include fundamentals such as drawing, light and shadow, composition, color theory, and basic perspective. Both still life and landscapes will be incorporated to create finished works of art.
Graffiti: Tweens will create their own tag using soft and sharp shapes, wild style, or Gothic font. Campers will learn how to create 3D letters using perspective and make connected letters that flow. Tweens will draw a background setting and arrange graffiti into an aesthetically-pleasing composition. Fine art concepts such as composition, perspective, and color theory will all be taught alongside graffiti painting techniques. To promote a healthy environment, spray paint will not be used in this camp.
Photography & Digital Photo Editing (ages 10-12)
August 8–12, 10 AM–12:15 PM
Capture and edit images to create expressive photographs. Tweens will learn the basic concepts of photography, experimenting with light, composition, depth of field, and more. Tweens will gain an understanding of how to use a digital camera and will spend time in the digital lab editing their photographs. Students will need to bring a digital camera or smartphone with a camera for this camp. They must also have a portable storage device, such as a thumb drive, for saving their progress in class.
August 8-12, 10 AM–3 PM
Graphic Arts: Look around, graphic design is everywhere! During this week of camp, teens will learn the basics of graphic design including typography, page layout, and marketing. Projects will help build foundational art skills as campers will use traditional non-digital techniques while working on projects such as designing a logo, package design, and magazine page layouts. This camp is perfect for finding dynamic ways to communicate ideas!
NEW! Cardboard Creations: During this week of camp, teens will explore their creativity by using cardboard to create unique sculptures and structures.
