Painting & Portfolio Development: July 20-24; 9:30-3:00
AM: Master Art Paintings One of the best ways to learn to paint is by looking at how Master Artists do it. This camp will teach you the basics of oil painting while you work on your own large-scale interpretation of a Modern Master Artwork. Modern Master Artists worked in the 20th century and ushered in brighter colors, more abstraction and modern content and include Cezanne, Soutine, Monet, Manet, Munch, Redon, Matisse and Gauguin. Finally, create smaller prints and stickers of artworks created this week, perfect to sell at the Creative Kids Artist Market at the end of Summer.
PM: Portfolio Development Designed for artists who are considering pursuing art as a career or continue their arts training at the university level. You will spend most of your time working on developing your artistic knowledge and abilities pertaining composition, technique, content and developing themes. You will be introduced to new processes and media each day while creating a series of artworks based on a specific theme. You’ll also learn about pursuing a career in the arts while looking at examples of strong portfolios and learning about college applications and art exhibition submission processes. Students are encouraged to bring examples of their artwork for the first day of class for feedback.
