2017 Summer Camps 

Drawing Boot Camp

June 5th - 9th

For all of the drawing lovers out there - this one’s for you! We will start with the drawing basics in graphite and then use those skills on the rest of our projects. We will learn how to draw faces, people, still lifes, cityscapes - we’re going to do it all! Students will learn how to utilize graphite, charcoal, vine charcoal, soft pastel, oil pastel, sumi ink with pen nibs and brushes, carved sticks, and micron pens! Per the requests of our fans - we will indeed spend a day working in anime-style drawing.


Painter’s Paradise

June 12th - 15th

Miss Hannah’s favorite medium is painting and she is so excited to share it with students this summer! Students will create multiple paintings in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as what it takes to make successful diptych and triptych paintings. This camp will introduce students to the basics and not-so-basics of painting. We will learn all the in’s, out’s, and history of: acrylic, watercolor, gouache, and oil paints. We still also study painting styles and techniques of famous painters and apply them to our own paintings. The week will end on a light note by forgetting the traditional means of painting on canvas and having a messy powder paint party!


Clay Workshop

June 19th - 23rd

Always in high demand is our fabulous clay camp! Each day students will learn and practice a new hand building technique: pinch pots, coiling, slab building, and relief sculpture. Students will build a variety of projects ranging from functional cups and teapots to abstract sculptures. Each student will get a private lesson on the wheel to round out their clay education. On the last day of camp, students will get to glaze all of their work with beautiful non-toxic and food safe glazes.



Hannah's Favorite Things

July 3rd - 7th

This week features all of Miss Hannah's favorite things! With earthenware clay we will hand build succulent pots, hanging planters, and roses which students will glaze with gorgeous  glazes. Students will also get to make succulent and cactus arrangements in the planters that they built. In addition to hand building, campers will get their turn on the pottery wheel. We will make and personalize our own giant dream catchers to decorate the studio until students take them home. We will make flower crowns out of craft flowers that never lose their color or petals - and that definitely never go out of style! We will also explore different types of calligraphy using traditional calligraphy brushes, pen nibs, and sumi ink. For those with an itch to paint, we will make a series of oil paintings on miniature canvases using palette knives to achieve beautiful texture in our work.


Color the Rainbow

This week will be the most colorful one of the summer. Students will really dive into color theory and explore the rainbow. We will make color wheels, splatter paint, make special paintings that POP when wearing 3D glasses, tie dye shirts and aprons, and so much more. We will explore color and it’s usage and values while through a wide variety of mediums. Campers will use acrylic paint, pastel, watercolor, dye, powdered pigments, and anything else colorful we will get our hands on. We will finish the camp by making crazy colorful cookies to take home.
