Morning workshops:
Ceramics: Discover various clay hand building techniques with ceramic artist, Will Quarantello. Campers will throw pottery on the wheel, build artworks using coil and slab, glaze, experience kiln firing, and much more. Each day will be an educational and fun way to create, build and get messy.

Drawing and Painting: Buffalo based artist, Tanya Chutko guides this morning workshop of color mixing and figurative exploration. Inspiration will be drawn from Fine Art as young artists create their own individual artworks influenced by the artwork of Maria Thomas. Free expression and creative process mark the imaginative experience as campers create Zentangle Power Animals.

Afternoon workshops:
Kinetic Balance

Life is about finding the balance.  Led by artist Matthew Conroy, young artists will design meaningful icons to represent aspects of their identity. Using mobile techniques inspired by Alexander Calder, these kinetic sculptures will realize the literal and metaphoric balance of features in their lives.
Cyanotypes
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Through the use of transparent materials, photogram approach and sun exposure, treated paper will hold a fixed image. Guided by Buffalo artist and educator Laura Minor, young photographers in this workshop will engage in this photographic process that does not require a camera or darkroom.
Holding Hands
Considering organic sculpture and the conceptual meaning of human presence, campers will engage in the process of transferring form from one medium to the next. In this workshop campers will learn the art of plaster casting by creating molds of their own hands.
Felting
Utilize a variety of colorful wool fibers to engage in a beloved art process. Create a felted vessel or wearable using a wet felting method. Young artists will choose how to make use of this functional artwork.

*Additional workshops may be added and are at the discretion of the teaching artists.
