The Art of the Selfie

We all take selfies, especially to share on social media. This week let’s dig into the world of portraits and develop our unique style as we document our lives and our emotions. We will discuss differences between portraits and self-portraits, look at artists creating both, and get busy learning about how lighting, settings, and composition affect the message of our images. We will shoot a lot together, on smartphones or other cameras, as we create a selfie series, play with 3D portrait collages, and pair some of our writing with imagery.**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.
