A day in the life of Weeks 1 & 2 Art Camp looks somethin’ like this…

10-10:15 – Well hello & good morning Craft Tent! Lots of art mediums for students to practice with.

10:30-12:15 – Let’s paint!
Campers will paint a different painting each day. Some will be led step by step. Some days they will choose a painting location around the grounds of 128 for “plein air style” landscape painting. Still-life options will be available as well.

12:15-1:15 – Eat your packed lunch & let’s chat about all those paintings with an informal critique.
SUPER SILLY GAMES included each day!

1:15-2:45 – Let’s draw! Every day we will add a little more to one amazing drawing of your choice.
We will see it through to completion on Friday. Still life options available or picture references are an option.


Older campers (week 1) have the option to work on one or two pieces all week (depending on style and process) instead of a new painting each day. Learn different painting techniques–blending, proportion, stroke styles, light source & more. Each afternoon, we will learn from each other as we eat our packed lunches & critique our morning work. We’ll throw in some fun games as well! After break, we will learn the basics of drawing. Campers will each create a drawing of their choice (still-life or a reference piece drawings). Each day we will continue with the same drawing in order to achieve one finished piece by Friday. We will learn different styles of Pencil Shading, Proportion, Basic Color Knowledge, and Light Source. Your child should be thinking about what they would like to draw for this portion of camp. Please email Ms. Nicole with image ideas so we are ready to get started on Monday morning. Finally, we will end each day with a popsicle in the shade! Our last day of camp will be a special day where we also prepare for the art show. We will matte our drawings & talk about set up displays–Learning how to properly exhibit the artwork we’ve created all week! Oh! Sculpture will be thrown into all camps this year as it had such a hit last year!
Artwork will remain in studio until the art show where it will be displayed, after which you can take home.

2023 Art Show will take place on Tuesday evening, August 1, 7-8pm.
