Campers will be taught several painting techniques and learn the skills needed to use both Watercolors and Acrylic Paints. Each Camper will be able to paint at least one of each: a landscape, a still life of fruit or flowers, an underwater scene, a storybook illustration, a favorite animal and a portrait or face. An opportunity will be given to paint a landscape 'En Plein Air' (outdoors on location) as well as to learn a number of contemporary or modern and abstract painting methods including drip painting and spray painting.)
All Campers will receive a Link to our Camp the week prior to your Camp Week.
All MORNING campers can log on 5-10 minutes prior to start time, which is 9:00am.
All AFTERNOON campers can log on 5 10 minutes prior to start time, which is 1:00pm.
To 'prepare' for Camp, we recommend all Campers to:
1.) Designate or find a space that is quiet and well lit and in which they can work in all 5 days of camp with little or no interruption.
2.) Make sure there is enough room or space to work in. We recommend a flat surface like a table or desk with additional space to put art supplies on. (Easels are not necessary for painting.)
3.) Prepare your space by putting an old/reusable or plastic tablecloth or by putting newspaper down so it will be easier to clean up (in case you get glue or paint or marker on the table).
4.) SUPPLIES LIST: Supplies that will be needed every day: a Pencil, an Eraser, a Pencil Sharpener, and (white) drawing Paper (printer paper will do). *Other art materials that you will need: Black Sharpie (or other permanent) Marker, Paintbrushes (a Flat and Pointed Round), Acrylic (or Tempera) paint, a Watercolor Set, a Container for Water, and Paper Towels to dry, 5 Canvas boards or Stretched Canvases.
