Summer Art Camp
SUMMER ART CAMP is all about creative thinking and problem solving while exploring a variety of art materials and processes. Each day we will be inspired by the various weekly themes and create fun and exciting projects by painting, drawing, building, printmaking, collage, clay and more! A Healthy Snack will be provided and, as long as the weather permits, the children will enjoy outside play and activities.
AM CERAMIC SAMPLER CAMP: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm (Ages: 6 and up)
Each week, unique and fun clay projects are designed to teach different hand building techniques from pinching, to working with coils, soft and leather hard slabs, to using molds and may include beginning pottery skills such as centering on the wheel, and throwing cylinders and bowls. We will explore different methods of surface decoration including texture, sprig molds, underglazes, and sgraffito. There will be new demonstrations, projects and lessons throughout the summer based on student’s interests and abilities that also incorporate the weekly theme of Markeim’s Art Camp.
PM POTTERY CAMP: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (Ages: 8 and up)
Students learn the fundamentals of working on the potter’s wheel in a real ceramic studio. Students will learn and practice wedging, centering, opening up and pulling walls of wheel thrown forms. They will progress through the trimming and glazing process to complete their projects.
