Come join us for an art-filled Spring Break!! Artists in Wondercamp is an art program designed to introduce elementary and middle school students to contemporary art through inquiry-based learning, open-ended discussions, hands-on studio art experiences, and interactions with professional artists. 


Students explore meaningful ideas and processes that help them investigate the world around them through the elements of art while, most importantly, having lots of fun. Different themes and media are explored with an emphasis on the process over the final product to allow creativity to flow freely We’ll begin each day with mindful body movement & yoga. For ages 7-12 years old.

CREATURE CREATIONS

 

Does it have a beak or sharp and glistening fangs? Does it slither on the ground or soar with lofty wings? Is it cute and sweet and fine or dripping with putrescent, sticky slime? 


If you’re the kind of person who finds themself daydreaming about mythical beasts, strange animals, alien lifeforms, or magical creatures, this is the camp for you! Students will explore drawing, painting, and printmaking to design an original creature creation. 


Using our 2D art as a blueprint, students will then fabricate and breathe life into their creatures by making a three-dimensional sculpture using a variety of materials including polymer clay, papier-mache, and fabric. 


We’ll explore each step of this process: from the initial design, preliminary sketch, to the finished sculpted creation. We’ll look to myths and legends, fairy and folktales, pop-culture, and contemporary artists for inspiration.
