Cultivate your child's creative side this summer with a visual arts camp built to stimulate an active imagination. Whether they're just looking to try something new or to build an impressive portfolio, classes with well-known artists and professors will teach your kids media-specific techniques they'll carry with them for life.
Plunge into the world of classic art, where your child will learn the refined skills of drawing and painting. Studio classes will give children hands-on practice in a structured environment that starts with fundamentals. Visual arts camps also offer a foundation of art history and color theory that will build the framework for watercolor, acrylics, oils, and everything in between. Kids will learn how to build and prime their own canvas or mix the perfect hues of cobalt blue and titanium white. A display and critique process will help older children to look critically at their work, or prepare them for work in a university environment.
Delve into 3D arts such as sculpture, ceramics, metalworking, and jewelry making. Whether your kids are in elementary or high school, visual arts camps specializing in these mediums will unlock a different side of their creativity. Watch them get their hands wet with clay and master a pottery wheel, or encourage them to don heavy gear to emblazon their next metal creation.
Dive into contemporary art camps, where mediums like digital photography, video, animation, and graphic design can open doors for burgeoning artists in the professional world. Visual arts campers will learn important guidelines like the rule of thirds and how to compose a strong photograph, or discover the skills needed for aspiring filmmakers and videographers. Graphic design classes taught by professionals will give older students a competitive edge when it comes to concepts such as logo creation and brand marketing. Whether your child is searching for a concrete or abstract visual arts experience, a plethora of summer camps will be sure to ignite their artistic ability.
