Between the Lines: Monday, July 12 through Friday, July 16 (5 days). Registration deadline: June 22.
A creative and fun look at the most fundamental element of art – line. Famous line drawings and paintings will inspire us in the use of lines in our own visual arts projects. Enjoy an exploration of staying in the lines, getting out of the lines, and filling in the space between the lines using various mediums. Inspired by artists Matisse, Van Gogh, Picasso, and more, learn how the simple use of lines can be all you need to discover your inner artist! Instructor: Stephanie Polinkski
Beach Arts: Monday, July 19 through Friday, July 23 (5 days). Registration deadline: July 6
The beach has been a source of inspiration for artists, poets, writers and musicians for centuries! Sand, water, wind, waves, aquatic creatures and more will inspire our beach-themed projects. Make beach paintings, collages, quilling waterscapes, shell art, horseshoe crab art and gyotaku fish prints. On the last day, parents are invited to our gallery of art projects curated by the campers. Instructor: Trish Schuster
