These are some examples of Art Activity we will explore. Depending on the skill set of the group the projects may be modified to be more or less challenging 

Lino and Block Printing

We explore printmaking using lino carving technique and block printing from various objects. This project will be tailored to suit the skill level of the group.

Collage Creation

This project starts with a walk around the block to the park and on this walk the campers are encouraged to find interesting items that don’t belong in nature but can be used to create an art piece, the result is a beautiful and lasting reminder that we reducing is the most important part of the 3 R’s !!

Water Colour Resist Painting – This technique explores positive and negative, colour  blending and contrast. Marbleizing and Gel Soap Resist are also painting technique we will do as an outdoor activity. Paper Making from our own recycled pulp and flower petals,

Sculpture –  Various fabrications and materials will be explored to create a 3 dimensional art work. We like to re purpose materials in our projects. This workshop can vary from a sculptural relief , totem or hanging piece. This is determined by the skill and age group. This summer we will also be creating lanterns and working with objects that can be incorporated in an outdoor setting.

Sketchbook Exercises –  Each camper has their own sketchbook and we have daily sketching exercises that include some planning and writing as well as drawing . The sketchbooks also are used in free time for individual drawing.

Portrait Poster – This is a group drawing project where all campers draw each other. The outcome is a colloge portrait poster and keepsake of their art camp experience!

Note: The above workshops are only a few samples of our work and may differ depending on the progress of the group, other mediums and projects will be added to the sessions. 

Each program will provide snack breaks with snacks included. Students are welcome to contribute to the snacks or bring their own if they wish.
