Elevate your Artistry: Sculpt, Paint & Beyond

SCULPTING HANDS CAMP (9 years & older)

We are thrilled to announce the return of our unique summer sculpting camp for children and teens. Step into the next dimension as we move creativity off the page and bring it to life.

This camp offers instruction in three distinct sculpting techniques, including free-form armatures, relief sculpture, and paper mâché. Students will learn how to create armatures as underlying structures, giving their sculptures a three-dimensional quality. Relief sculpture involves sculpting material raised above a background plane, adding depth and dimension.

Please note that this is not a craft camp. The knowledge gained in this one-week program will truly amaze both your child and you. Our sculpting expert, Ms. Deborah Lawton, brings a wealth of experience working with children and youth of all ages, ensuring that students learn to sculpt like professional artists.

Whether your child is a seasoned sculptor or new to the 3D world, this class will empower them to create with confidence. Returning students are welcome to register, as the projects offered will be different each summer.

SKETCH & WATERCOLOUR DISCOVERY
(9 YEARS & OLDER)

Join our watercolour painting camp designed for students who are new to this delicate and diverse medium. It offers a fun exploration of watercolour painting. We also welcome students with painting experience who want to expand their vocabulary and techniques.

In this camp, we begin with a bit of colour theory and play around with the medium, then progress to creating finished pieces while experimenting with various watercolour techniques and painting processes. Projects are specifically tailored to watercolour paint, allowing for greater exploration and specialization. The possibilities are endless, so let’s dive in!

Each student receives their own supply kit to use during the camp. While drawing experience is beneficial, it is not necessary as a prerequisite to join this camp. All are welcome to unleash their creativity with watercolours!

Arts Combo: Design and Create a magical world (9 years & older)

Experience the ultimate art-making adventure with our Arts Combo Class for children and teens (ages 9 and up), featuring art journaling and sculpting. This camp is a celebration of creativity, encouraging experimentation, spontaneity, and resourcefulness. Please note that this is not a craft camp!

In this camp, students will explore the creative processes of art journaling, emphasizing experimentation, spontaneity, and resourcefulness. This is not a craft camp; it’s all about cultivating artistic expression. Students will learn professional techniques such as collage, print-making, painting, drawing, stenciling, and typography to build a pocket journal and create a textured landscape. The end result will be polished and sophisticated, providing students with valuable skills for further independent art journaling on any topic or theme, whether for fun, relaxation, or even school purposes.

The second part of the camp focuses on building a unique house to store the pocket journal and other special treasures, adding a three-dimensional element to the artistic journey.

During the camp, students will be provided with a supply kit, and they will also be asked to bring in images and personal items from home to enhance their artistic creations. Get ready for an unforgettable arts experience that combines self-expression, creativity, and the joy of exploring new artistic techniques!
