July 10- 14
Drawing and Painting Morning Workshop: Guided by artist Richard Tomasello, campers will explore traditional as well as experimental forms of mark making. Inspiration will be drawn from acclaimed Buffalo artist Chuck Tingley as young artists create their own mini murals. Tingley will make a special guest appearance to assist in the process.
Free expression and creative process mark the imaginative experience in this morning workshop.
Ceramics Morning Workshop: Discover various hand building techniques, such as coil and slab, using clay as a medium. Campers will throw pottery on the wheel, build vessels, experience a raku firing, and much more. Each day will be an educational and fun way to create, build and get messy.
Kinetic Sculpture: Inspired by nature, campers will create floating landscape mobiles led by artist Brian Nacov.
Art in miniature: artists will manufacture their own hand held toy box theaters
Photography: learn how to make a pinhole camera with 35mm film and a matchbox. Campers will use this device to capture stunning images.
All sessions of Art Camp will include an art show for family and friends on the final day of Camp at 3pm in the Family Area of the Outdoor Amphitheater.
** A special bonus, the Albright Knox Gallery will exhibit art camp works for the month of August. Campers who participate in the August 2017 exhibition will receive a pass for admission to the Albright Knox for themselves and their family. The admission pass is good throughout the month of August, visitors will be able to view their works exhibited in the education hallway and will experience the entire Albright gallery.
