Creature Drawing Camp

Time: June 6 -10 (Mon-Fri) 9 am - noon

Openings: 16 campers
Ages: 6-10
Fee: $95
Sign-up: Full! Waiting list available. Please check back for cancellations

Activities: This camp calls for boys and girls who love to draw and invent! We will start with animals that are cute, cuddly and familiar, and move to rare and dangerous ones like dinosaurs and those that live in deep dark seas. We then will explore the idea of making imaginary creatures like dragons and pokemon. Finally, let’s all create our very own magical and powerful creatures!

Materials: Campers need to bring their own sketch pads ( 9”x12”, spiral bound); regular school pencils and erasers.

Full! Waiting list available. Please check back for cancellations

Activities: Choosing from a wide variety of themes, campers will learn basic color-mixing skills, compositional ideas, and painting techniques. They can be expect to bring home 2 to 4 ready-to-hang paintings depicting their favorite subjects. Bring your family and friends to the studio to enjoy our very own art show on Friday!

(Due to the intensity of the painting process, campers will take small breaks in the studio backyard instead of having recess in the park.)

Materials: Campers need to bring at least four stretched canvases (size from 11"x14" to 16"x 20"). The studio will provide acrylic paints, paint medium, brushes, palettes and other needed materials.
