Our Programs

Middle School Art Camps

Painting Workshop

Week of June 17
For a week, campers will take a deep dive into painting, learning about color, portraits, contrast, hue, and all the basics they need to create their own works of art. They will experiment with different styles inspired by the works of masters such as Monet, Picasso, Kahlo, and Klimt. They can even get in touch with their inner diva by modeling for their fellow artists! At the end of the week, campers will bring home their own original masterpiece created using all the skills they learned from camp.

Drawing Workshop

Week of July 1
In Drawing Camp, campers will learn the basics of drawing, such as shadow, lighting, detail, form, shape, and blending. Campers will draw inspiration from their surroundings and practice drawing from life through observation. They will hone an artistic eye and learn how to manipulate an image to convey emotions. Campers will also dabble in tools beyond graphite, such as pastel, colored pencil, charcoal, and ink, to create different effects and discover their own personal style.

Mixed Media Workshop

Week of July 15
Mixed media camp will allow campers to explore the depths of their creativity. Campers will experiment with combining traditional mediums such as paint, ink, and pencil, and less conventional ones such as wax, textiles, wood, and whatever else piques their interest. They will play with and learn about texture, sculpture, and expression, as well as learn new techniques as they come up in their art. During mixed media week, everything is on the table, and the only limit is a camper's imagination!
