Shifting Perspective

As artists, we are masters at not only observing our environments, but interpreting them in our own way to share our point-of-view. This week we will learn about great artists and works which challenged prevailing ideas - from Marcel Duchamp to Sturtevant and Banksy. We will experiment with and practice techniques to shift our perspective in drawing, painting, and sculpture, trying out new ways of making. Ultimately, we’ll create a final piece that challenges the audience to think differently.**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.
