ALL ABOUT PAINTING
online art camp for kids 10-16 years old
This camp will be held ONLINE via ZOOM video conference. Students will need access to a computer / tablet / phone with internet connection and zoom.us. Art materials will be available for pick up from the studio few days before the start of the camp (dates and details will be provided).
This camp is dedicated to various aspects of painting with the most popular painting media: acrylics or oils (students can choose), plus an intro on watercolor. By the end of this camp students will learn to asses the desired color by mixing, correctly represent lighting, texture and proportions of objects, strengthen their knowledge of color theory and human anatomy, and bring home a complicated still life (morning students), a creative self portrait (noon students) or both (full day students).
Bring your own lunch and snacks.
