Shifting Perspective

As artists, we are masters at not only observing our environments, but interpreting them in our own way to share our point-of-view. This week we will learn about great artists and works which challenged prevailing ideas - from Marcel Duchamp to Sturtevant and Banksy. We will experiment with and practice techniques to shift our perspective in drawing, painting, and sculpture, trying out new ways of making. Ultimately, we’ll create a final piece that challenges the audience to think differently.**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 11 to 14 Year Olds

With a growing independence and ability to handle more complex ideas, art processes, and real-world issues, campers are introduced directly to the creative practice of working artists. Campers embrace the studio experience as faculty artists give them the tools to lead their own discovery. Projects are often sustained throughout the week and campers and encouraged to explore on their own as well as in collaborative partnerships. We shift studio spaces regularly, often working outdoors.

Camps are led by a lead faculty artist and teaching assistant. A visiting artist comes in to offer a different outlook and media for 2 afternoons, Mondays and Wednesdays (unless noted).

What does the week look like?
9:30-12: Morning art session
12-1 Lunch and outdoor time
1-3:15: 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.
