Explore working in black and white while drawing, painting, and printmaking with pen and ink, brush and ink, acrylics, charcoal, graphite, pencil, linocut, and silkscreen. Focus will be on observation, shading, composition, texture, and contrast as students develop an understanding of the power of black and white images and the ability to incorporate photographs in their artwork. Please bring a cell phone with camera capabilities to camp, if you have one.
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.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Comic Book Creation camp with the afternoon Art in Black and White camp, and Lunch Option 2.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs.
