online art camp for kids 10-16 years old
Learn to paint and draw portraits alike! This camp is recommended for students familiar with drawing fundamentals, that would like to pull their portrait drawing skills to the next level. We will study anatomy of the head, neck, chest, arms, and hands, work on short pencil and charcoal sketches, make a realistic watercolor portrait with underpainting, and a large realistic portrait in acrylics and oil.
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).
We are not offering refunds for new purchases. However, full credit towards future bookings or transfer to another camp/class will be offered for any cancellations made up to 24 hrs before the camp or class start.
If camp or class is cancelled due to gathering restrictions or shelter in place order placed by state or county authorities, similar online camp/class will be held instead. Students can cancel their registration if online learning does not work for them, with the full credit towards future in person camp/class.
