Drawing is a key skill for a developing artist. We will begin using pencils, charcoal, pen and ink and black fine tipped markers to observe elements of nature. Once we have practiced our drawings, we will learn how to use paints in both realistic and abstract designs.

Ages 6-10 & 11- 14.

Printmaking and Patterns. Color and Design. Students will be introduced to different printmaking techniques including etching, Lino cutting and eco printing. They’ll learn how to design stamp patterns and how different materials create different effects. By the end of the week, they’ll have their own series(es) of limited edition prints!

Ages 6 - 10.

Draw inspiration from the Lightner Museum’s "Ride On! Historic Bicycles from the Keith Pariani Collection." Thinking of bicycles in the past, present and future, campers will create both 2D and 3D works of art utilizing materials like watercolor paints, cardboard, wire and more. We will use both our artistic and engineering brains in this unique camp that celebrates all things bike! We recommend students bring their own digital camera or device equipped with digital photography capabilities.
