Minors Art Camp (K - 1st)

Campers should get ready to have fun, use their imaginations and be creative and as we explore the wonders of our art room. Each day introduces our youngest artists to new art materials and mediums. We roll up our sleeves, put on our smocks and aren’t afraid to get messy as we inspire our young artists to create and express themselves.

  • Painting: We open the canvas to creativity as we let our budding artists explore painting with brushes, spray bottles and their hands. Campers use their imagination to create beautiful paintings using conventional and nonconventional techniques in watercolor, finger paint and tempera paint.
  • Sculpting: There are no rules when we sculpt. Creativity flows freely as we use tinfoil, tissue paper, string and construction paper to make creations each camper is proud to take home.
  • Drawing: Our projects excite and inspire campers as they learn and create 2D masterpieces. The book Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg serves as a guide as campers learn that there are no mistakes in art, only opportunities.
  • Tactile Design: Duct tape pockets, slime, bookmarks and birdhouses are a few of the projects campers work on during their week at art camp. Many different materials are used to create and strengthen our fine motor skills.
  • Artist Study: Based on the introduction of a different artist each week (and their works of art), campers create their own masterpieces while gaining an understanding and appreciation for the creation of others.
