In Eco Arts Camp, students will learn how to connect art and science by studying ecology and use the beautiful flora and fauna of St. Stephen’s beautiful campus as inspiration for visual artworks! Using the universal language of art, we will explore and inspire awareness around environmental issues.
Students will gain foundational skills in a variety of art materials including drawing, watercolor, acrylic painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Artworks will also reuse and recycle materials to create more art and less waste. On the final day of camp, we will celebrate all the work in an art exhibit and a “trashion show.”
Camp is open to ages 11-18 and each project will be adapted to be age appropriate. Lunch and snacks will be provided daily.
