Art: Shadow Puppets

Art-“Taste”-ic Desserts! 

(Grades K – 2 & 3 – 6)
How sweet it is to make art about dessert? This camp will cover a wide-range of materials including papier mache, oil pastels, painting and drawing where the themes of each piece will be…yummy! Think donuts, ice cream, cake, and cookies. Taught by Melinda Stewart, educator, and artist, this class is sure to be sweet!

Art: Cartooning 

(Grades K – 2)
Where campers who love to watch cartoons can learn to draw their own. Taught by Barry Brown, professional artist and educator, the possibilities are endless! Cartooning has the power to achieve creativity and fun through the language of humor, which ultimately is a hands-on and exciting new way to learn this medium!

Art: Graffiti

(Grades 3 – 6)
How fun would it be to learn how to draw graffiti-style? So cool! Join your friends as we learn to express themselves in a whole new way. Graffiti-inspired activities will engage and motivate all campers to learn about content, symbolism, metaphor, and ultimately bring out their inner-artist. Taught by professional artists and educator, Barry Brown, this camp is sure to get the creative juices flowing!
