Older students will learn a variety of drawing techniques using charcoal, chalk and oil pastels in this afternoon art camp. Students will work from still lives, photographs, their imaginations, as well as artworks in the Museum galleries and sculpture garden to create finished works of art.
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 afternoon Drawing: Charcoal, Chalk & Oil Pastel with the morning Op Art: Optical Illusions camp, and Lunch Option 1.
