Campers will explore their creative minds with artist led workshops including Drawing and Painting inspired by Pop Art with Richard Tomasello, Ceramics with Hilary McAndrew, Modified Toy Sculpture, Mask Making, Leather Work, and Portraiture

On the final day of camp, family and friends are invited to attend the Art Show where our young artists will display their original creations.

As a special bonus, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery will exhibit some art from the camp for the month of August. Campers who participate will receive a pass for admission into the Albright-Knox to view the art during the month of August.


Morning workshops:

Ceramics: Discover various hand building techniques with Hilary McAndrew, such as coil and slab, using clay as a medium.  Campers will throw pottery on the wheel, build vessels, experience a kiln firing, and much more.  Each day will be an educational and fun way to create, build and get messy.


Drawing and Painting: Guided by artist Richard Tomasello, campers will explore traditional as well as experimental forms of mark making. Inspiration will be drawn from Pop Art as young artists create their own individual artworks.  Free expression and creative process mark the imaginative experience in this morning workshop.


Afternoon workshops:

Modified Toy Sculpture: Artist Brian Nacov will use several methods for remixing vintage and found mass produced toys to make unique creations.  Through use of various techniques, campers will learn about found object assemblage sculpture, DIY toy modding and model painting.

Mask Making: Led by theater trained puppeteer Connor Caso, campers will draw inspiration from various cultures including Pacific Island, Native American and African mask making techniques.

Leather Work: Guided by artist and teacher Megan Tenney, campers will explore leather as process and a material for creating wearable and functional works of art.

Portraits:  Inspired by the artwork of Yayoi Kusama, young artists will create engaging and colorful portraits featuring pattern and texture.
