Meet the Artists

Let’s get to know some masters of art! Each day will highlight a different artist from a different time and place, and explore their methods and materials. We’ll look at Kandinsky’s circles and lines, O’Keefe’s bold landscapes, and Faith Ringgold’s “story quilts,” among others. Using these works as inspiration we will create our own masterpieces in varied techniques.**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.

Campers at this age love to broaden their use of materials, sustain projects over multiple days, and work creatively together. We encourage this age to view challenges as opportunities and “mistakes” as open doors, and to develop ideas and projects from their mix of rational and imaginative energy. More critical reflection is encouraged, while play still remains essential!

What does the week look like?
  • Each camp has one lead artist-teacher and one assistant, as well as one visiting artist- usually in clay- on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings
  • The day is split into morning and afternoon exploration units. Outside discovery is included throughout the day
