Drawing and Painting Camp

Students surrounding a set-up of flowers, intently drawing.
Learn how to draw out more from your imagination.

CAMP EXPERIENCE:

Study history's great painters while improving your own painting skills.

Do you know who Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe, Jacob Lawrence, and Diego Rivera are? Why they are famous for their unique approaches to colors and shapes in their artwork? Discover more about these artists and how they created colorful images that populate our museums around the world.

We will also help you strengthen your skills in:

mixing paint
applying paint
color theory
perspective
abstraction
looking

Like to draw? Always doodle? Do you see your life through the lens of a composition, with a picture frame decorating the edges of your world? If so, drawing camp is the place for you.

We will help you learn how to look and express what you see through skills such as:

line
volume
shading
and other drawing techniques.

Beyond techniques and mediums, we will also help campers develop the habits of perseverance, confidence in expression, good craftsmanship, and critical thinking.

An experience sketchbook and a portfolio of your artwork will be produced over the course of the week.
