Summer Morning Mini-Camp 2017


Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30AM to 12 Noon
COST: $175 Per week includes all materials.
During the summer morning camp we will focus on a single area of art and create artwork portraying what we have learned.  These classes are for children ages 6-10 (possibly 5) who are serious about their artwork and would like to spend their mornings creating in an intimate studio setting with friends.  We will be learning techniques and skills in each area that they will be able to use beyond the class, all while having lots of fun.  Sign ups are per week and your child may attend as many or few weeks as you like (as long as they are not full).  If you are interested, please email me and I will send you a sign up form (theredbowstudio at gmail.com).  There is a $50 deposit per student to reserve a space per class.  If you have any questions, please call or email me!  There must be at least 4 children enrolled for a class to run.
WEEK 1 Collage Workshop June 27,28 &29
In week one we will spend our time cutting with scissors and creating collages with Mod Podge.  We will decorate a cigar box and other goodies to hang on the wall- both lovely items to spruce up any room in your house!
Week 2 Paint A Canvas July 5,6,&7
In week two we will work with acrylics to paint a canvas. On the first day we sketch out our ideas and draw them onto our canvas.  The second and third days will be spent working with the acrylic paints, focusing on color and form.  If there is time, we will work on more than one painting.
Week 3 Bookmaking August 9,10, &11
In week three we will work with simple types of bookmaking, creating different small books inspired by stories in our everyday lives.  Our creations will include a stab stitch book and an accordion book, which we will fill with paintings and collages.
Week 4 Printmaking August 15,16, &17

In the last week of mini-camp we will learn about printing with foam, plastic stamps and stencils.  On the first day we will work with brayers and stamps to create simple prints.  The other days the campers will create their own designs on foam and print them onto paper and canvases.
