Summer Art Camp 2019 Week 4 – July 15th – 19th
AM Classes (9:00 until Noon)
Fun in the Mud with Laura Cardello (4-8)
A perennial favorite, this introductory pottery class for the very young will allow students to explore different kinds of clay, the pottery wheel, hand building objects and colorful glazes. Students will make all sorts of pottery and fantastic creatures to be treasured for years to come.
Print It! Stamp It! Stomp It! with Cynthia Hall (4-8)
Students will have the opportunity to explore many methods of printmaking. Our young artists will design and create their own stamps, producing multiple prints and explore mark-making with everyday and found objects!
Claymation 101 with Lexi Melton (9 & up)
Lexi Melton returns for another session of this popular and fun class. Young artists will explore the fascinating process of claymation, a form of stop-motion animation, to make their own short films. Using a variety of materials such as armatures, fabric and, of course, clay and creating their own storyline, students will flex their creative muscles.
PM Classes (1:00 until 4:00)
Youth Pottery with Laura Cardello (8 & up)
Our most popular summer class! Students will learn the basics of making functional ceramics using the pottery wheel, and decorative pieces and whimsical animals using hand-building techniques. They will also learn about glazing and surface decoration and the wonder of the kiln – creating a vibrant shiny surface when a piece comes out.
F/X Makeup with Lexi Melton (8 & up)
Lexi Melton returns to teach this wildly popular class on special effects make-up. Students will learn prosthetic sculpting, molding and casting techniques to create advanced cosmetic effects. Although these effects tend towards scary Halloween characters by recreating blood, wounds, gashes and odd facial features, students can also do animal and fairy makeup, strip and cover!
