Transformations: Children’s Summer Art Camp

June 12-16
Monday-Thursday 9:00am – 12:00noon
Friday 10am – 2pm

This summer art camp will engage students in a variety of processes that transform everyday objects such as fruit, vegetables, wood scraps, found objects, and plastics into new pieces of art. Students will explore the work of three artists from different periods: contemporary glass artist Dale Chihuly, mid-20th-century assemblage artist Louise Nevelson, and 16th-century fantasy artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Based on this work, they will create their own fantastical visions under the guidance of artists Tracie Slattery, Erin Chapman and David Holcomb.

Expanding on last year’s emphasis on performance art, on the final day, students will participate in a full day workshop conducted by Jonelle Lipscomb in which they will explore the actor’s tools of body, voice, and imagination, and how those tools are used in the creative process and then create short performances based on the day’s work.

Daily schedules will be: Monday-Thursday, 9am-12noon and Friday 10am-2pm, with lunch provided on Friday only. Parents and the public will be invited Friday for a potluck and final performance and exhibition of artwork beginning at 6:00pm.

Class is limited to 15 students. Cost $25 including mid morning snacks, lunch on Friday and all supplies.
