Summer Camps Themes
Our summer art camps
provide a fun and educational experience where children express themselves
creatively while learning about the elements and principles of art and
design. Infusing a component of art history, campers are exposed to famous
20th century artists as they work on art projects based on
inspiration, observation, and imagination. Divided into groups based on
the grade into which they will be entering in the fall, campers are guided
through age-appropriate projects as they explore a variety of drawing,
painting, and sculpting techniques and proudly walk away with new
knowledge and quality artwork.
3D Sculpting (Gr.3-9)
As an art form, sculptures fill
our space in a three dimensional form. By using different techniques to
create relief and free standing sculptures, campers delve into the world
of 3D art. Throughout the week, sculptors plan and execute several 3D
sculptures using a variety of materials while exploring techniques such as
modeling, carving, assembling, and casting.
Creative Writing (Gr.4-9)
Aspiring writers work with
certified teachers to explore the essential elements of a great story.
While developing their own unique short story, writers delve into creating
compelling characters, exploring dynamic settings, structuring great
narratives and illustrating plot events. Throughout the 5 day workshop,
writers develop, enhance and illustrate their story, taking part in a
writers’ circle to discus narrative options and make informed literary
choices. Wrapping up our inspirational week together, writers walk away
with their very own bound-book and a wealth of ideas for future stories.
An Introduction to 2D Animation
The path to animation begins with
a display of still images in sequence for the purpose of portraying action and movement. In this 15hr workshop, campers begin with drafting
their very own animation sequence in the form of a storyboard. Working
with students from the field, animators are introduced to the principles
of 2D movement and expression. Focusing on the art of storyboarding,
animators will work on proportion, perspective, and a storyline ready for
future computer animation if so desired.
