Acrylic Painting Camps 

Thanks for an awesome summer!

Strokes of Brilliance ~ Basics of Painting 

Learning to paint is a natural next step after learning to draw. This camp is the perfect opportunity for children to explore the basics of acrylic painting through hands-on learning while building painting techniques and skills.  We take concepts that children love to explore -- colour, light, form, texture -- and build on those interests, while encouraging exploration of material and personal creative expression. Beginners and returning students are welcome.  Drawing experience is recommended such as our Drawing Fundamentals 1 or Basics of Drawing camp.

Dates & Times:  August Jul 31 - Aug 4th: 9 am - noon   

Ages:  9 and older

Cost (incl. materials & gst):  $240.00

Arts Combo (painting, journaling & sculpting too!)

Budding artists will explore, play, and express themselves in so many ways: art journaling, abstract acrylic painting and sculpting! This camp is the perfect opportunity for children and teend to explore the process of painting and sculpting through hands-on learning.  Painting projects will focus on abstract techniques, color and composition.  Students will create a variety of art journal projects, paintings and a sculpture. Professional art techniques such drawing, painting, printmaking, and other embellishments will be demonstrated.  Mixed-media art is a wonderful process of drawing, collaging, painting and writing using a variety of media.

Gem Journaling, as we like to call it at Aliki's, allow you to create precious gems of art as a record of your thoughts, experiences, dreams, etc to be treasured forever. Art journaling is simply doing art and writing in a bound journal, on loose paper, even on a cardboard box.  It  is a wonderful process of drawing, collaging, and writing using mixed media. Skills learned in this camp are easily transferable to personal creative projects and school work.  Studies show that studying via a combination of drawing and writing helps students retain concepts better. This camp is great for teens. They will discover the magic of art as self expression while learning key elements and principles of art.  

Drawing experience is beneficial. Our Basics of Drawing Camp or Drawing Fundamentals classes is a great foundation. Please call (403.667.7020) or email ( to schedule a studio appointment.
