Today, we’ll tell a funny story by making a flipbook, work in small groups to make a claymation short film (stop motion with sculpting), and enjoy pool time.

Day 5 Color me Crazy (9:00am – 3:30pm)

We’ll create an abstract pour painting on canvas, alcohol inks, throwable paintballs, a paint squirt gun war (white shirts recommended!), and enjoy swim time.

*Canvas will take up to a week to dry and parents will have to come sometime the following week to pick up this last project.

Covid and Summer Camp

Masks will not be required for summer camp. Please do not enroll for summer camp if you are not comfortable with the risk of your child being around other children not wearing a mask.

**Pool Safety

Students must be strong swimmers to participate in this summer camp or must be provided a life jacket to wear the whole time. They will have to pass a swim test on the first day. Swim tests will require the students to one at a time swim down and back across the pool without holding onto the ledge to rest, then be able to tread water for a minute with their head above water.

Weekly Art Classes

Classically inspired art classes center around art history, movements, and specific artist. Students have fun while learning a variety of mediums such as acrylic, watercolor, oil and chalk pastels, charcoals and many others while highlighting famous artist throughout the year, and complete works inspired by them. After the completion of every project students can answer questions about all they learned and earn special treats.

Class is structured with a small intro video about the artist we will be studying followed by live projection camera to TV showing students live step by step what I am doing on the screen. This allows them to learn and watch exactly how to blend, paint, or mix by watching me demonstrate each step first then I walk around and help them accomplish the steps on their own.
