2018 sessions available:
July 9-13 | July 16-20 | July 23-27 | July 30-August 3
Campers will explore their creative minds with artist led workshops including Drawing and Painting inspired by Takashi Murakami, Ceramics with Francesca D’Angelo, Pixel Art Sculpture, Assemblage, Textile and Glass.
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 include:
Ceramics: 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 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 Takashi Murakami's exhibition The Deep End of the Universe as young artists create their own individual artworks. Free expression and creative process mark the imaginative experience in this morning workshop.
Pixel Art Sculpture : Inspired by computers and gaming, young artists will make a pixel drawing and convert it into a sculpture that is 1 voxel wide with artist Brian Nacov. The sculpture can be curved or glitched as they assemble it.
Fused Glass: Create one of a kind translucent artworks with Bruce Verbeck. Learn the basics of cutting and assembling glass for a kiln process.
Assemblage: Campers will assemble sculptural works from mixed media inspired by DIY culture.
Textile: Artists will have the opportunity to use fabric and play to manufacture Dadaist artworks
