The Drawing and Painting camp will help children enhance their drawing and painting abilities, develop new talents, inspire confidence and creativity, encourage the production of unique works of art, and provide opportunities to explore a variety of art materials. Students will work from photographs, observation, and imagination. Students will use pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels, acrylic paint on canvas, and watercolors in this art camp.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the afternoon Drawing and Painting camp with the morning Draw, Cut, and Combine: Mixed Media Art camp, and Lunch Option 3 to create a full day program.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of camp on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
