Do YOU want to immerse yourself in the world of Fine Arts and improve your artistic skills this summer?

If so, we invite you to enroll in our 2018 Fine Arts Camp with all NEW CURRICULA where campers learn and improve various techniques in creating beautiful artwork using pencil, ink, charcoal, oil pastels, and watercolor paint.

On Mondays, campers work with their choice of pencil, ink or charcoal.  Initially, campers create an abstract drawing and develop the discipline to draw various lines, shapes, colors, shadows, and textures.  Afterwards, campers utilize their newly developed skills to draw a self-portrait!

On Tuesday and Wednesday, campers work with oil pastels to create a piece of art inspired by a quote.  Campers have the option of selecting a favorite quote, or creating one of their own!  For this project, pieces can include portraits, impressionistic landscapes, surreal dreams, pop art, and more…  Campers will also look at work from some of the world’s most famous artists across genres, and find added inspiration!

On Thursday and Friday, and NEW for 2018, campers embrace water colors to paint a beautiful landscape focusing on travel.  The project will embrace the artist’s vision of a landscape invoking great beauty – some examples may include a lush valley, a gorgeous section of the rainforest, a river with lazy boats on a sunny day, a road winding through the countryside, a beach with blue water and mountainous background, or a unique concept all your own!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Immerse Yourself In Art:  By attending Fine Arts Camp, you have the entire week to learn and improve techniques, create your own masterpieces, and interact with other aspiring artists.  A great artist should not feel rushed, and an entire week at Fine Arts Camp gives you ample opportunity to work and spread your wings!

Work with Various Mediums:  By attending this week long camp, you will gain exposure to working with different mediums (like charcoal, oil pastels, watercolor), learn a variety of techniques, and see what you like best!

Learn Some Art History:  In obtaining inspiration for your Tuesday-Wednesday project, you will study some of the most famous and inspiring artists and pieces in history!  Hopefully, this will provide you with plenty of inspiration and broaden your depth of knowledge.

Meet Other Aspiring Artists:  What’s better than making friends and collaborating with other young artists!  We love when our campers bring a passion for the arts and positive attitude to camp, creating an upbeat environment where artists can have fun and be productive!

Fun & Creativity:  At Fine Arts Camp, YOU choose your subject matter.  While we are focusing on different styles of art and techniques throughout the week, we give you the freedom of ultimately choosing and creating your own masterpieces!  With lots of time to focus on your work, and a lively and creative atmosphere, we are excited for a camp full of accomplishments and fun!

Campers exhibit their work at a Friday Art show at the end of the camp day!  Parents are invited to attend at 3pm!
