It’s summer and it’s time to be outside! Enjoy 2 of our favorite things: art and the outdoors! There’s a lot we can do inside our studio – we aren’t afraid of a mess – but stepping outside opens up wonderful possibilities. This week Basecampers will investigate our surroundings, use natural materials and take advantage of being able to wash it all clean with a hose. Ages 4-10
July 23rd-27th, 9am-3pm
Basecampers will be encouraged to develop their own style after experimenting with and learning about the styles of the masters. Each day we will learn about famous artists and what materials & techniques they used. Artists will have a chance to try each style on and see what fits. Ages 4-10
NATURE + ART
July 30th-August 3rd, 9am-3pm
Nature is one of the best inspirations for creative expression. As much time as possible will be spent outside observing our surroundings, gathering materials and creating artwork this week. Basecampers will also bring elements they love from nature into the studio to combine with other art materials. Ages 4-10
August 6th-August 10th, 9am-3pm
This week basecampers will learn techniques of hand building as we experiment with different clays. Artists will even have the chance to design, build and fire their own creation – Thanks to our community partner Earth, Fire Art! Ages 5-12
