Building Like A Brutalist

The name Brutalist originates from the french word for "raw", Brut. Brutalist Architecture is a Modernist style, with a focus on raw material (especially concrete) as an aesthetic. In this two week camp we will use concrete as our main material and muse, but incorporate other raw materials such as clay, plaster, wood, and metal. We will create and experiment with smaller functional and sculptural projects before building a larger collaborative sculpture. Come ready to mix, build, and cast!**Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

Campers at this age bring a growing independence and ability to handle more complex ideas and art processes, as well strong awareness of real-world issues. We introduce campers directly to the creative practice of working artists and give them the tools to lead their own discovery. Projects are often sustained throughout the week and campers and encouraged to explore on their own as well as in collaborative partnerships.

What does the week look like?
  • A lead artist-teacher and assistant guide the activities throughout the day.
  • A visiting artist comes in to offer a different outlook and media for 2 afternoons, Mondays and Wednesdays (unless noted).
  • Break for lunch and outdoor free time is between 12-1
  • The week ends with an art show with family and friends.
