BAAY Summer Art Camps!
Drawing & Painting Art CampJune 26th – 30th and July 5th - 8th, 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm, Ages 6 – 12
In this exciting summer art camp, we’ll gain the confidence & ability to work in any medium. We’ll take the first week to learn to accurately draw what we see, learning the beginning of perspective and shading, through the use of charcoal, graphite, oil and chalk pastels. The second week will be about painting, using watercolors/acrylic paints with different techniques to change the look and texture, drawing inspiration from Monet and Van Gogh. The class will also include a walking field trip to visit a local gallery or museum downtown. By making art of the world around us, we learn to see it in all of its beauty. (Optional: You can enroll for one week or the two weeks.)
July 24th – 31st, and August 1st – 4th , 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, Ages 10 – 17
In this art course we’ll focus on three-dimensional art, starting the first week skill-building while learning the technique of collage, including use of photographs, upcycled materials, acrylic paints, textures, watercolors, and ink. During the second week, we’ll explore sculpture; we'll explore styles of sculpture while studying a variety of artists such as Leonardo DaVinci, Picasso, & Claes Oldenburg. Students will select an animal of their choice to build from, learn the use of building armatures, sculpting in clay, and painting to finish their pieces. The class will also have a one-day field trip to visit a local gallery or museum downtown.
