Artist Explorers: Art From Around The World

June 1-5, 2020
9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Ages: 5-10
Cost: $400
Come discover the wonderful arts and cultures in our “Artist Explorers” summer camp! Artists will “travel” across the globe using their “Art Passports” and learn about several different countries.  We will explore multicultural artwork in a variety of media inspired by the places and cultures we visit. Using the universal language of art, artists will gain an awareness of multicultural art and the intersections of diverse communities 

Artists will gain foundational skills in a variety of methods and art materials ranging from drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. We will explore how different artists around the world use the elements of art and the principles of design. On the final day of camp, artists  will celebrate and display all of their work in an art exhibit. All projects will be taken home on the last day.

Camp is open to ages 5 to 10 and each project will be adapted to be age appropriate. Lunch and snacks will be provided daily.

Projects Include:
  • Creating a personal passport to stamp for each country visited
  • Australian aboriginal dot paintings
  • Plein air (outside) paintings inspired by French artist, Claude Monet
  • Endangered animal portraits from Brazil’s Amazon rainforests
  • Printmaking of Mexico inspired by Jose Guadalupe Posada
  • Japanese origami and Shibori tie dyeing fabric techniques
  • African masks
  • Tibetan Sand Mandalas and more!
