Comics and Zines
This week is a full immersion into graphic novels, zines, and other really amazing approaches to telling visual stories! Enter the zone of page-turning excitement as we read and develop stories and characters, and then draw, write, stamp and design our own mini-books, comics and self-published zines- in paper and in clay. Through it all we will sharpen our paper-folding skills and create slipcovers to hold our special editions, sharing them with each other and with families.
**Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

Camps for 8 to 10 Year Olds
Campers are guided by faculty artists to broaden their use of materials, sustain projects over multiple days, and work creatively together. More reflection and planning is encouraged, while their imaginative energy is celebrated through projects with lots of camper voice and choice!
What does the week look like?
Campers create individually and collaboratively with the guidance of a lead faculty artist and assistant. Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings a visiting artist guides a project in a different media (usually clay).
9:30am-12 noon: We start the day with a morning meeting and then get busy with hands-on exploration for our morning art session.
Mid-morning: Snack break
12:00-1:00pm: Lunch and outdoor play
1:00-3:15pm: Afternoon art session
3:30: Regular pick-up
The week concludes with an art show, when campers get to share their experiences and creations with family and friends
