Camps for 11 to 14 Year Olds
With a growing independence and ability to handle more complex ideas, art processes, and real-world issues, campers are introduced directly to the creative practice of working artists. Campers embrace the studio experience as faculty artists 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. We shift studio spaces regularly, often working outdoors.
Camps are led by a lead faculty artist and teaching assistant.
A visiting artist comes in to offer a different outlook and media for 2 afternoons, Mondays and Wednesdays (unless noted).

9:30-12: Morning art session
12-1 Lunch and outdoor time
