“WE ARE GOING TO MAKE ART AND HAVE FUN DOING IT!!!”
Workshops will explore all types of fabrications from painting to printing, etching and sculptural creation.
We have structured activities for the morning part of the day which involve creative game play, theatrical creation of small skits inspired by props, and group story development and sketching.
Hope you will join us and make some beautiful art !
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.
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 can be used to create a composition of canvas.
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.
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 if they wish, but only bring what can be shared with the others.
Weather providing, we may take our sessions or breaks in the back garden, which is safely shaded and gated.
COME JOIN US AND MAKE IT A SPECIAL SUMMER!
