ARTISTS IN WONDERCAMP: summer edition

JUNE 17-JULY 19, Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. *Early Drop-off/Late Pick-up is available

Come join us for an art filled summer! Artists in Wondercamp is a summer 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. Each week 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 and yoga. 


For ages 7-12 years old. Art is a messy business, so please dress appropriately!  


 

 

  • Early Registration: $200 Before April 7th
  • Registration After April 7th: $225
  • Early Drop-off (8 a.m.): $25 per week
  • Late Pick-up (6 p.m.): $25 per week

No Strings Attached: Storytelling Through Art and Puppetry

Enter the world of magic and make believe as we sculpt, paint, sew, and animate characters, creatures, and imaginary worlds. We’ll build puppets of all sizes, tell stories with light and sand, perform plays in the palm of our hand, and make masks that move as we speak. We’ll look to our favorite fairy tales, myths, poems, and dreams for inspiration. Students will construct their own miniature toy theater and make an old fashioned cranky from a matchbox. We’ll learn how to manipulate and breathe life into our creations while putting on a puppet parade and lip syncing to silly songs.


Week 2: June 24-28

Clay Creations: Enchanted Garden Art 

Come squish, shape, roll, and squeeze clay into art for your backyard or garden! Using basic hand-building techniques including pinch, coil, and slab, we will learn to make toad houses, flower pots, bells, butterfly feeders, and garden sculptures.. We will add surface decorations through stamping and printing and will learn to finish our pieces by glaze painting. We’ll look to the natural world and contemporary clay artists for inspiration.

Week 1: July 8-12

Bestiary: Art In the Animal Kingdom

Animals have appeared in art from as early as the cave paintings of Lascaux, about 32,000 years ago and continue to inspire and influence contemporary artists. Join us as we create colorful and quirky animals seen through the eyes of famous artists, designers and illustrators such as Andy Warhol and Kiki Smith. Each day we spend time creating unique animal artworks using a variety of mixed media including cardboard, oil pastels, paint, glue, papier-mâché, and more! Our creative agenda features a mix of animal sculpture, illustration, printmaking, and collage, both imagined and realistic.


Week 2: July 15-19
