1pm–4pm, June 26 – June 30
Teens Ages 11-17
Instructor: Gail Baker
Explore the 2-D world of paint and color in this fun and creative mixed media summer camp. Discover new techniques for creating paintings using different tools and materials to create your art.
Mixed Media allows you to mix it up: literally! While students experiment with various tools for applying paint and other mediums, they’ll be learning about pigments and hues, saturation of color, and how their ideas come together to create their own unique composition.
We’ll use various materials including sticks, colored pencil drawings, thick and thin paint, collage pieces, and texturing with sand, string and beads on boards. Tactile experiences contribute to this camp’s appeal. By playing with core art elements and principles of design, kids will come away with a one-of-a-kind work of art. No experience necessary.
