Art Camp 2022: Week 1


July 11-15
Advance Registration: $300 per student, per one-week session
Open to ages 9-14

Registration for Art Camps is full.

Morning workshops:

Ceramics:  Discover various clay hand-building techniques with ceramic artist, Hilary McAndrew. Campers will throw pottery on the wheel, build vessels using coil and slab, 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: Campers will create artworks inspired by Buffalo-based artist, Tanya Chutko as she guides this morning workshop. Inspiration will be drawn from Fine Art as young artists create their own individual artworks. Free expression and creative process mark the imaginative experience as campers create original paintings on wood. 

Afternoon workshops:

Soft Sculpture: Led by Buffalo based artist, Juniper Moon, campers will fabricate their own soft sculpture inspired by her artwork and Curious Rabbit: An Interactive Art Space

Galaxy Paint Pours: Through the art of paint pouring, campers will create their own galaxy paintings complete with planets and stars.

Felted Insects: Artist Ashley Maybach will guide campers as they explore felting as a process. Young artists will craft detailed insect artworks for wearable accessories and decoration.

Memory Jars: Using a personal photograph, campers will create a memory jar as a personal keepsake to explore the ideas of place, identity and time through object making.

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