For young artists who are expanding and refining their two-dimensional and three-dimensional art making skills, we will use both conventional and unconventional tools and materials to explore symbolic, representational and expressive aspects of drawing, painting, printmaking, three-dimensional and time based art making such as performance art. Concepts such as narrative, metaphor, and abstraction will be explored through explorations of color and color mixing, mark-making, observational drawing and other material investigations. Project may include comic book drawing, photo-collage, large-scale sculpture and acrylic painting. Materials fee: $40, payable in camp.
