Beyond the Page

This camp will focus on art that is created using paper. If you’re interested in seeing how paper can be used beyond just drawing or painting on top of, this camp is for you! We will learn how to create 3D artwork through folding, wrapping, quilling, and paper making techniques. Students will also explore papercutting techniques to create intricate designs for display or in bookmaking. Students will enjoy learning how this everyday art material paper can transform their ideas from both on and literally off the page!

Drawing Faces - Campers learn how to draw male and female faces of all ages, along with expressions and hair styles

The Drawing Summer Camp series for kids is a weekly workshop that features different drawing themes each week. On Mondays students learn the weekly subject, with a brief online meeting on Wednesday to touch base on progress, then a final online meeting online on Friday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the instructor sends out emails with helpful and inspiring links and resources to keep students motivated and engaged.

During the class, campers are guided and encouraged based on their skill levels; there is no pressure to “keep up” with other students or deadlines, and campers are in charge of their progress. No one is forced to participate.
